The '240' Conference: Science's Greatest Challenges

This scientific gathering, marking the 240th birthday of R. Stephen Berry, Stuart A. Rice, and Joshua Jortner, will focus on open, deep, difficult and important problems in chemical physics and related areas of science which require the advancement of novel concepts and experimental methods. Several central themes will be addressed which will be presented within the framework of three sessions: Complexity and Emergence; Dynamics under Extreme Conditions, and the Grandest Questions, Origins of Life and the Chemical Universe.

Patterns on Thin Sheets: From Stressed Inanimate Materials to Biomembranes and Growing Tissues

Recent developments in biology, chemistry and material sciences have renewed the interest in the rich phenomenology of patterns evolving on thin sheets, be it elastic ones with uniform or prescribed metric, or fluid membranes, characterized by homogenous or multi-component molecular composition.
