The Second International Symposium of Experiment-Integrated Computational Chemistry on Multiscale Fluidics (ECCMF2)

SCOPE OF THIS CONFERENCE

This symposium is aimed to discuss novel approach for struggling with environmental issues and development of advance materials using multiscale computational chemistry which enables to analyze multi-scale (hole, electronic, atomic, molecular, and macroscopic levels) flow as well as experimental techniques. A possibility of a combination of experimental techniques with computational chemistry is also discussed. In particular, measurements of flow phenomena, especially regarding to ecological materials, and possibilities of collaboration with computational chemistry for study of extended applications (fuel cells, biochemistry, water purification etc.) will be focused. This symposium provides young students and researchers with an opportunity for better understanding of environmental issues and advanced materials by means of state of the art experimental techniques and computational chemistry.

This symposium is supported by GCOE program of Institute of Fluid Science, Tohoku University, Japan.
