Despite more than one hundred years of study, and particularly remarkable experimental and theoretical progress over the last several decades, many important aqueous phenomena remain poorly understood. This international workshop will bring together experts working on both liquid water and its interaction with bio-molecular solutes and extended interfaces. All sessions will involve experimentalists who employ a range of techniques, and theoreticians who use approaches of varying complexity. In doing so, interactions on topics that are less appreciated within subfields of water-science, for example the role of nuclear quantum effects of water at biological interfaces, will be catalyzed. Daily sessions will also include talks by experts discussing implications of water-science on important topics such as climate change and efficient energy storage and conversion.
