This informal workshop will explore new methods, challenges, and opportunities in the development and analysis of effective theories that reduce the degrees of freedom and bridge time and space scales in physics, chemistry, and biology.

Topics to be covered in lectures, discussion, and poster sessions include pattern formation, coarse-graining in statistical physics, epitaxial growth, atomic to continuum models, and complex fluids.
