The objective of this Workshop is to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academia to describe the state-of-the-art in the titular areas and to identify their current roles and potential in the chemical, manufacturing, energy, pharmaceutical, and related sectors.
The Workshop will consist of a number of lectures by leaders in the field, followed by breakout sessions in several major areas. These latter will include the role of emergence, information theory, etc. in chemical manufacturing; the challenges inherent to adopting a systems chemistry approach in areas such as the manufacturing sector; non-linear processes in manufacturing and how to “standardize” these; needs (reference data, materials, models, etc.) in this regard; and what roles NIST can/should play in this area. Ample time will be provided for presentation and discussion of the results from each session.
