First NIST Workshop on Macromolecular Separations-by-Design
Gaithersburg, MD — The First NIST Workshop on Macromolecular Separations-by-Design will bring together scientists and engineers from industry and academia, along with instrument and column manufacturers, to identify the needs of the industrial community with respect to the rational design of macromolecular separations that can quantify the distributions of physicochemical properties exhibited by complex, modern polymers.

The workshop is being held in Gaithersburg, MD on October 10-11, and will consist of a number of keynote lectures, followed by breakout sessions focused on developing solutions to the challenges of method development, specifically advancing and accelerating methods for broad applications. Needs in all areas spanning theory and computation, basic experimental validation and design, and instrumentation and facilities will be considered. Ample time will be provided for presentation and discussion of the results from each session.

Keynote speakers are: Harald Pasch, Stellenbosch University; Peter Schoenmakers, University of Amsterdam; Timothy Lodge, University of Minnesota; Jimmy Mays, University of Tennessee; Patricia Cotts, DuPont CR&D; Willem deGroot, Dow Chemical Company; Ilja Siepmann, University of Minnesota; Karl Freed, University of Chicago. Security will be in place. If you are not registered, you will not be allowed on site.

Registered attendees will receive security and campus instructions prior to the workshop.
