Oscillations & Dynamic Instabilities in Chemical Systems (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Chemical Self-Organization Far from Equilibrium


July 16-17, 2016


Stoweflake Conference Center
Stowe, VT


Marcello A. Budroni

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Oscillations and Dynamic Instabilities in Chemical Systems is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present their work and exchange cutting-edge ideas. Some contributions will be selected for talks. The collegial atmosphere of this conference will offer ample space for informal gatherings among peers and the opportunity for non-intimidating discussions with some leading senior scientists from the related area, invited as mentors.

This meeting will focus on pioneering research in the field of self-organization phenomena in out-of-equilibrium systems and reflects the multidisciplinary character of the associated GRC on Oscillations and Dynamic Instabilities in Chemical Systems. Proposed topics include, but are not limited to, theoretical and experimental studies of nonlinear kinetics in chemistry and biology, chemical oscillations, coupled oscillators and synchronization phenomena, spatial pattern formation, chemo-hydrodynamic instabilities, chemo-mechanics, granular materials, multistability phenomena, deterministic chaos, collective behavior, systems chemistry and networks. Special emphasis will be put on how to transpose the fundamental background of nonlinear dynamics and complexity in biological, materials and environmental science.
