Memory Formation in Matter
02 Jan 2018 - 09 Mar 2018 • Santa Barbara, United States
Memory is the ability to encode, access, and erase signatures of history and typically requires broken symmetry or ergodicity. This program will develop the conceptual underpinnings for memory in materials and broader connections to science and math.

Liquid Crystals, Metamaterials, Transformation Optics, Photonic Crystals, and Solar Cells
27 Feb 2018 - 02 Mar 2018 • IMA/University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Since their discovery at the end of the nineteenth century, liquid crystals have helped illuminate the many ways in which light interacts with matter. The capability of nematic liquid crystal molecules to align along preferred directions by the application of electric and magnetic fields has had a profound impact on the way that information is presented through the flat panel display industry. In addition to small molecule nematic structures, there is a wealth of liquid crystal phases that can offer several degrees of positional ordering. These include the one-dimensionally modulated smectic phases, the two-dimensional chromonic crystal structures, and the three-dimensional periodic blue phases, which are determined by arrays of defects in cholesteric materials. This workshop will focus on a number of novel optical applications of liquid crystals. This workshop will gather mathematicians and scientists from many fields of liquid crystal research to explore the current trends of liquid crystals.

Electrohydrodynamics and Electrodiffusion in Material Sciences and Biology
12 Mar 2018 - 16 Mar 2018 • IMA/University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, United States
Electrohydrodynamics and electrodiffusion, in particular the study of droplets and deformable membranes in fluid under the effect of electric field or the flow of ions in salt exchange membranes and fuel cells, are classical fields in the material sciences. The potential applications of electrohydrodynamics to microfluidics and biomedical engineering has given a renewed interest to this classical field. On the other hand, description and modeling of corresponding phenomena in biology is relatively sparse, but its presence and significance is starting to be recognized. This workshop will bring together experts of electrohydrodynamics and electrodiffusion in both the material sciences and biology to foster discussion. The talks will address various aspects of electrohydrodynamics and electrodiffusion, including phenomenology, modeling, and computation.

Gordon Research Conference — Crystal Engineering
24 Jun 2018 - 29 Jun 2018 • Newry, ME, United States
The ability to control crystallization and dictate the organization of atomic and molecular building blocks in the solid state using principles of crystal engineering is rapidly evolving to the point where properties can be realized through design rather than serendipity. Progress in this area will take place at the intersection of organic, inorganic, materials, and physical chemistry and requires a unique interface of experimental and theoretical tools provided by academia and industry. The collective purpose of the GRC and GRS is to bring together a wide range of experts with diverse backgrounds and will consist of the session topics noted below. The theme of "Progress in Crystal Engineering Design, Properties, and Function" aims to capture developments being made in Crystal Engineering on multiple fronts.

MS18 — SIAM Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science
09 Jul 2018 - 13 Jul 2018 • Portland, United States
Since 1994, every two to four years the SIAM Materials Activity Group organizes the SIAM Conference on Mathematical Aspects of Materials Science. This conference focuses on interdisciplinary approaches that bridge mathematical and computational methods to the science and engineering of materials. The conference provides a forum to highlight significant advances as well as critical or promising challenges in mathematics and materials science and engineering. In keeping with tradition, the conference seeks diversity in people, disciplines, methods, theory, and applications.

Gordon Research Conference — Research at High Pressure
15 Jul 2018 - 20 Jul 2018 • Holderness School, Holderness, NH, United States
Most of the high-pressure matter in the universe—planetary interiors—resides at intermediate temperatures between the cold-curve and the Hugoniot. We will explore recent results bridging traditional isothermal and Hugoniot studies. Across our disciplines "high pressure" can legitimately describe pressures from 10 MPa to 10 TPa. We will focus on pressures of importance to biology and chemistry, associating studies where compression is used to effectively explore and control material response.

Hot Topics: Shape and Structure of Materials
01 Oct 2018 - 05 Oct 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
The fascinating and complicated microstructures of materials that are now visible through advanced imaging techniques challenge the frontiers of characterisation and understanding. At the same time, developments in modern geometric and topological techniques are beginning to illuminate important features of material structures, while the microstructures themselves and the analysis and prediction of their macroscopic properties are inspiring new directions in pure and applied mathematics. In a collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), this workshop aims at intensifying the interaction of mathematicians with material scientists, physicists and chemists on the structural description and design of materials.
