The 2016 3rd International Conference on Packing Problems will be held at Regal Shanghai East Asia Hotel (上海富豪东亚酒店)，Shanghai on August 29-September 1, 2016.
The importance of packing problem affects many scientific disciplines. The aim of this conference, as a continuation of the past two, is to discuss the latest developments of how packing geometry affects the properties of systems from atomic to macroscopic length scales. One special theme of current conference is on the nature of amorphous packing structures. Through the intensive discussions by colleagues from various disciplines who have worked on theory, simulation, and experiments, we hope that we can develop an environment that encourages shared belief among all about the importance of packing problems. The conference is sponsored by Department of Physics and Astronomy and Institute of Naturla sciences of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Laboratory of Soft matter and Biological Physics of Institute of Physics Chinese Academy of Sciences. Special thanks to Prof. Xiaoqun Wang and Prof. David Cai for support.
