Call for Abstracts: SES - Advances In Polymer Modeling And Simulations

Dear colleagues,

The Society of Engineering Science (SES) 57th Annual Technical Meeting will be held at Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, September 28-30, 2020 (

As part of this meeting, we are organizing a mini-symposium addressing the advances in polymer modeling and simulations under Track 7 - Soft, Active Materials and Applications in Soft Robotics.

The production of newer classes of polymers, such as polymerized ionic liquids and nanoporous polymers, opened up exciting possibilities for various applications including electrochemical energy generation and storage, water purification, sensing and releasing biological molecules, development of light-weight structures. Modeling these complex architectures presents significant challenges related, for instance, to the system size, accuracy of the classical and coarse-grained potentials, presence of multi-scale effects, and critical discrepancies with experiment.
This mini-symposium aims to bring together scientists and engineers working at the forefront of the modeling and simulation to exchange and share their experiences and recent research results.

We cordially invite all the interested scholars to submit your abstract to this mini-symposium. The deadline for submission is March 17, 2020.

We look forward to your presentations at our symposium.

Best regards,
Jihong Ma, University of Vermont
