Methods to Simulate Nucleation and Growth from Solution (MSNGS) 

 MSNGS logo

 4th - 5th August, 2016 Sheffield, UK


Understanding the nucleation and growth of phases from solution at the nanoscale is key to addressing challenges in a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, medicine and materials engineering. MSNGS will bring together computational experts to discuss state of the art methods in this area of simulation. Our programme will cover a number of themes. These include methods to access necessary time and length scales, and to measure the thermodynamics and kinetics of nucleation and growth, as well as solution modelling and effects. The following invited keynote speakers have confirmed their attendance:

* Professor Dorothy Duffy (UCL, UK)
* Dr Baron Peters (UCSB, USA)
* Dr Richard Sear (University of Surrey, UK)
* Dr Stephen Whitelam (LBNL, USA)
* Professor Dr Dirk Zahn (FAU, Germany)

*** We welcome contributing talks and posters ***

Registration and abstract submission can be done following the instructions at Registration costs £125 or £165 with overnight accommodation. The deadline for both registration and abstract submission is 17th June 2016.

Aaron Finney, Colin Freeman, John Harding and David Quigley (organising committee).
