Thermodynamics

23–25 September 2009, London, UK

As the science of energy and its effects on the material world, thermodynamics holds one of the keys to meeting the challenges that our modern society faces. Data and models that describe the thermodynamic behavior of materials are essential to the development of sustainable technologies and products. Although its origins date to the scientific revolution itself, thermodynamics has been evolving rapidly in recent years. This is partially because it has benefited from the advances in numerical simulation, which helps complement experiments and theory. Thanks to these new developments, thermodynamics now spans a large range of domains: the life sciences, with their complex supramolecular arrangements; nano-materials, where short-range interactions are dominant; complex fluids, such as liquid crystals, electrolytes and ionic fluids; critical behavior and extraction processes; the behavior of materials in extreme conditions; and many more.

The Thermodynamics 2009 conference will bring together researchers from all over the world who are interested in these topics and in the three main tools currently used to explore them: experimental investigations, statistical mechanics and equation of state modeling, and molecular simulation.

This conference is the 21st meeting in a series of thermodynamics conferences founded in the 1960s by John Rowlinson and Max McGlashan. The conference will feature the 2009 Lennard-Jones Lecture and Prize, awarded by the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry, UK. In addition, the Christopher Wormald Prize will be awarded to two research students, nominated by members of the community, who have undertaken research within the broad remit of the conference.
