Part I: The emergence and breakdown of complexity. Features of complexity / Ronnie Kosloff -- Exploring quantum-classical boundary / Kenji Ohmori -- Transition from atoms to clusters to condensed matter / Julius Jellinek -- Free energies of staging a scenario and perpetual motion machines of the third kind / Peter Salamon [and five others] -- Finite-time thermodynamics tools to analyze dissipative processes / Karl Heinz Hoffmann, Bjarne Andresen and Peter Salamon -- New types of complexity in chemical kinetics: intersections, coincidences, and special symmetrical relationships / G.S. Yablonsky, D. Constales, and G.B. Marin -- Opportunities in the area of noise in biological reaction networks / Aaron R. Dinner -- Thermodynamic approach to chemical networks / G. Nicolis, C. Nicolis -- On the emergence of simple structures in complex phenomena: concepts and some numerical examples / Martin Quack -- The emergence of simplicity from complexity / John D. Weeks, John C. Tully -- Part II: Dynamics at extremes. On the way to a theory of solid state synthesis: issues and open questions / J. Christion Schon -- Beyond molecular conduction: optical and thermal effects in molecular junctions / Abraham Nitzan -- Thermal conductance at the interface between molecules / David M. Leitner -- Laser energy deposition in nanodroplets and nuclear fusion driven by coulomb explosion / Andreas Heidenreich -- Understanding ultraintense X-ray interactions with matter / Linda Young -- Time-dependent computational methods for matter under extreme conditions / Barry I. Schneider [and four others] -- Elementary excitations in ultracold finit sytems / John Weiner -- Part III: Grand questions.
