General information

The workshop is organized as a part of the Horizon 2020 RISE project "Effects of confinement on inhomogeneous systems" (CONIN). In the CONIN project modelling of self-assembly in systems with competing interactions as well as modelling of systems with dominant electrostatic interactions is planned.

The aim of the workshop is to summarize the recent progress in colloidal and amphiphilic self- assembly and in the room temperature ionic liquids, both in the bulk and in confinement, as well as in mobile ions in intercalation compounds and on solid surfaces. Recent advances in theoretical and simulation methods appropriate for inhomogeneous systems, and in experimental studies of such systems will be presented. Review lectures by invited outstanding theoreticians and experimentalists and by senior researchers participating in the project are planned. In addition, there will be two poster sessions. Important open questions will be discussed during the round-table discussion closing the workshop.
