#464 - Structure and Properties of Polymers III: Dynamics of Glass Formers (08A01)
Understanding the dynamics of glass forming materials both above and below the glass temperature is of fundamental and practical importance. Here we solicit papers in the following areas: microscopic and molecular mechanisms of dynamics in glass-forming liquids; fragility dielectric spectroscopy; mechanical spectroscopy; linear and nonlinear response; effects of confinement on dynamics; pressure, volume and temperature influences on dynamics; and dynamics in the glassy state.
