Title: CMCSN: Structure and dynamics of water and aqueous solutions in materials science

This award has contributed to build a network of scientists interested in the structure and dynamics of water. Such network extends well beyond the PI and the co-PIs and includes both theoreticians and experimentalists. Scientific interactions within this community have been fostered by three workshops supported by the grant. The first workshop was held at Princeton University on December 6-8, 2010. The second workshop was held at the Talaris Conference Center in Seattle on February 10-12, 2012. The third workshop was held at UC Davis on June 19-22, 2013. Each workshop had 40-50 participants and about 20 speakers. The workshops have been very successful and stimulated ongoing discussions within the water community. This debate is lasting beyond the time frame set by the grant. The following events are just a few examples: (i) the month long activity on "Water: the most anomalous liquid" organized at NORDITA (Stockholm) in October- November 2014 by A. Nilsson and L. Petterson who participated in all the three CMCSN sponsored workshops; (ii) the workshop on "ice nucleation" organized by R. Car, P. Debenedetti and F. Stillinger at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science in April 23- 24 2015; (iii) the 10 days workshop on watermore » organized by R. Car and F. Mallamace at the E. Maiorana Centre in Erice (Sicily) in July 2016, an activity that will morph into a regular summer school of the E. Maiorana Centre in the years to come under the directorship of R. Car, F. Mallamace (U. Messina), A. Nilsson (U. Stockholm) and L. Xu (Beijing U.). All these activities were stimulated by the scientific discussions within the network initiated by this CMCSN grant.« less
