Abstract:

Symposium OO intended to provide a forum for discussing what might be termed complex self-assembly, even though it features hierarchical self-assembly in its title. The idea of the symposium is that the units of self assembly themselves should have considerable complexity andor programmability, and that this complexity should be reflected in the self-assembled structures that result, for example either allowing the construction of complex patterns at large length scales perhaps hierarchically or allowing construction into the 3rd dimension. To this end, the Symposium OO featured three tracks on three different aspects of self-assembly 1 self assembly based on the specific binding interactions afforded by biological molecules such as DNA and protein Biological materials, 2 self-assembly of complex particle systems such as colloidal particles with specific and arbitrary shapes Complex particles and 3 self-assembly of structures based on programmed structural changes in 2D materials to create more complex materials Folding, rolling and wrinkling.
