This conference has been deferred to 2023 due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back soon for the 2023 schedule.
The 2021 GRC on Science of Adhesion will focus on advancing our ability to manipulate and control adhesion across length scales. A set of sessions will cover advances in fundamental understanding of adhesion phenomena in natural and engineered systems. This will include advances realized via experiments, simulations, and theory. A second set of sessions will examine application of the science of adhesion to creating systems with unique and controlled adhesive characteristics. This will include a focus on approaches for realizing the dynamic control of adhesion, which enables a range of novel applications in micro/nano-systems, robotics, manufacturing, and medicine.
