#317 - Self and Directed Assembly at the Nanoscale II (22019)
We invite papers on the computational and theoretical aspects of modeling self-assembly process. These include, but are not limited to, the self-assembly of amphiphiles, proteins, polymers, and nanoparticles. The development of descriptions of the driving forces for assembly, meso-scale structure, interactions, dynamics, rheology, and the relationship between fundamental interactions and macroscopic behavior for the engineering of liable assemblies are all of interest. Relevant topics include the modeling of surfactant structures and phase behavior, liquid crystals, gels, associating polymers, polyelectrolytes, biopolymers, and colloidal materials. Papers emphasizing the development of multi-scale models of assembled materials are strongly encouraged as well.
