Water is perhaps the most important chemical substance known; without it the existence of life would be questionable. Yet the detailed structure and behaviour of water in the condensed phase and in the interfaces between the condensed phase and its environment remain somewhat controversial. Faraday Discussion 141 aims to move towards a better understanding of the microscopic structure and behaviour of condensed phases of water at interfaces and progressing into the bulk.

The meeting will be opened with a lecture by Pavel Jungwirth (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic) and topics that will be discussed are:

• Surface Charge of the Liquid Water Surface
• Biological Interfaces and Non-linear Optical Tools
• Ice Interfaces
• Nanoscale, Confined Interfaces and Electrochemical Systems
