1. Short description of the workshop
Directional crystallization is defined as the controlled crystallization in one specific direction that can be induced, for example: by a heat flux, a magnetic or electric field, a flat or a patterned substrate, or a mesophase. Directional crystallization implies that systems are out of equilibrium and that they are controlled by kinetics. Molecular crystals are of particular interest because they tend to form low symmetry crystals with typically monoclinic or triclinic unit cells. New physics such as, for example, the unit cell alignment versus a heat flux, emerge from the low symmetry. The workshop will bring together world experts of non-equilibrium thermodynamics, kinetics, crystal growth, polymers, and molecular crystals. The workshop is expected to be a brainstorming with intense discussions.
2. Conference fees and registration
The meeting is free of charge but registration is mandatory through the webpage of the workshop.
3. Deadline
November 17, 2014 is the deadline for registration
4. Travel and accommodation
Attendees must make their own travel and accommodation arrangements. They are also in charge of their own travel and accommodation costs.
