[DMANET] MSRI workshop "Hot Topics: Shape and Structure of Materials"

Dear Scientists and Mathematicians,

We wish to announce the upcoming workshop:


Hot Topics: Shape and Structure of Materials

MSRI, Berkeley, October 1-5, 2018


The fascinating and complicated microstructures of materials that are
now visible through advanced imaging techniques challenge the frontiers
of characterisation and understanding. At the same time, developments
in modern geometric and topological techniques are beginning
to illuminate important features of material structures, while the
microstructures themselves and the analysis and prediction of their
macroscopic properties are inspiring new directions in pure
and applied mathematics. In a collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory (LBNL), this workshop aims at intensifying
the interaction of mathematicians with material scientists, physicists
and chemists on the structural description and design of materials.
