The Chemical Sciences Roundtable is hosting a public workshop on November 6-7, 2014 in Washington, DC. This 1.5 day workshop will center on the research on chemical phenomena with a particular focus on the collective and emergent behaviors at the mesoscale. Mesoscale chemistry can be loosely defined as the scale between the microscopic (molecular) and macroscopic (bulk) worlds, where interesting ensemble effects exist that present opportunities for developing new functionality of materials and understanding of biological and interfacial systems, as well as challenges for analysis and description. Participants will be invited to actively participate in discussions and respond to panels of speakers, which will help identify opportunities and challenges in chemical and chemical engineering research at the mesoscale.
