Roma 12-14 June 2019


This congress is intended to discuss the most recent state of the art in the field water under extreme conditions and to identify new strategies to make progress in this field.


The topics that will be treated include supercooled water, superheated water, aqueous solutions, water in confinement and water at interfaces. A special attention will be devoted to computational challenges and to the development of new potentials.


Water is the most important compound in nature and it is characterized by a very complex phase diagram with a large number of different solid structures. It shows many anomalies in all the thermodynamic space. Besides understanding the behavior of water, in contact with both inorganic and biological substrates and/or in solutions, is of pivotal importance for a wide range of applications in physics, chemistry and biochemistry.


This congress belongs to a series of meetings that we organized every other year and that we initiated in 2009.
