Subject: 08.06.08 NATO ARW Molecular Self-Organization in Micro-, Nano-, and Macro-Dimensions, Kiev, Ukraine
The NATO ARW Molecular Self-Organization in Micro-, Nano-, and Macro-Dimensions: From Molecules to Water, to Nanoparticles, DNA and Proteins, dedicated to Alexander S. Davydovs 95th birthday, to be held in June 8 - 12, 2008, in Kiev, Ukraine. http://arw2008.bitp.kiev.ua/ The key topics of the NATO ARW are the following: Molecular Self-Organization Processes in Micro-, Nano-, and Macro-Dimensions Hydrogen Bonding, Water and Aqueous Solutions, and Molecular Liquids Clusters (including gold), Nanoparticles, Nanotubes, and Nanodots Molecular Nano-Devices Solitons, Proton Transport Molecular Modeling and Molecular Dynamics Thin Films and Surface Phenomena DNA, Peptides and Proteins The chief idea and the main purpose of the planned multi-disciplinary Workshop is to bring together the scientists who work in the fundamental and applied areas of physics, chemistry, and biology from the NATO and Cooperation Partner Countries to share their research expertise, their knowledge of our many-dimensional world that manifests via the myriads of facets. It suffices to recall in this regard a nonlinearity-induced conformational dynamics of molecular complexes as a key issue in soft-matter physics and biophysics, effective trapping of nonlinear localised excitations and how they contribute to macroscopic phenomena, nonlinear charge and energy transport, proton conductivity through water-filled carbon nanotubes many of them are rooted to the pioneering researches that was conducted in the 70ies and 80ies by the outstanding Soviet physicists and the former Director of the Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics Prof. Alexander S. DAVYDOV who was also well known for his works in nuclear physics and molecular crystals (Davydovs splitting). His idea of the energy transport through proteins based on the concept of soliton (Davydovs soliton) was widely recognized and inspired many studies in France, Germany, Denmark, U. K., U. S A., Greece, Israel, Japan, Italy, and China. Another facets that we meet downshifting from a macroscopic scale to the nano one are the extraordinary catalytic properties of gold micro- and nanoparticles that have been confirmed by countless experiments, applications of nanoparticles in the biophysical and biomedical sciences, and in biotechnology, particularly including biosensors, DNA transfection, enzyme encapsulation, and drug delivery, the surface-functionalized nanoparticles, nanotubes, etc.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
