Description:
We seek papers describing molecular, mesoscopic, continuum, and multi-scale modeling of interfacial phenomena, with a special emphasis on systems exhibiting unique and technologically useful behavior owing to their nanometer length scale. Topics may include -- but are not limited to -- colloidal dispersions, adsorption in nanopores, protein/polymer/colloid adsorption, interfacial self-assembly, and nanofluidics. Contributions focusing on thermodynamic, dynamic, or hydrodynamic modeling -- including all forms of molecular simulation -- are encouraged.
