Welcome Packet for Attendees

Road Closure Information

Complex structures and behaviors spontaneously occur in a variety of simple, table-top chemical experiments. The study of these systems has surged in recent years for a variety of reasons. For example, such chemical systems are excellent laboratories for studying how "more is different." Also, many of these systems have patterns or growth processes that resemble living matter and so may be useful for understanding these more complicated systems. Finally, mastering the growth and control of these systems may lead to new technologies. This international conference seeks to bring together theorists and experimentalists on topics related to:

Pattern Formation
Self-Construction of Complex Chemical Structures and Systems
Systems Chemistry
Growth Theory
Hydrodynamics and the Formation of Precipitation Structures
Chemical Networks
Chemical Gardens
Origin of Life
