Aspects covered by this conference
Biology and materials science are posing new challenges for chemistry; the sheer size of biological systems and composite materials poses new questions of complexity (as opposed to being complicated), visual and digital depictions of the structures and collection and collation of results. Our traditional models of chemical compounds, atoms and bonds, are often proving inadequate and need to be extended. Even more fundamental, however, is the recognition that models are models and their often-problematic relationship to “reality”.
