The annual event is organised in Europe every three years and this year’s edition – organised in Brussels from 5 to 8 September 2007 – focuses on computational developments in physics ranging from electronic structure computations to simulations in astrophysics.
Of the more than thirty Actions active in COST’s Materials, Physics and NanoSciences (MPNS), three are particularly involved in the event and will showcase their work to the more than 400 participants expected to participate.
COST Action P10 “Physics of Risk” relates to understanding the phenomenology of risk through the study of dynamic features and interactions that influence the onset of extreme events within society. This COST Action will feature recent work carried out by physicists concerned with the nature of societal income distributions based on elementary agent models at the conference. This work sheds light on the underlying competitive processes that cause such distributions to remain more or less constant over time and across different societies and poses challenges to those who advocate extreme egalitarian redistributions.
COST Action P13 “Forging the missing link: From Molecular Simulations to Nanoscale Experiments” contributes with two central conference sessions covering topics such as applications of computational methods, soft matter systems and solids and clusters. These topics are the core of the Action since its main objective is to initiate a concerted European effort to develop novel computational tools to model matter at the nanoscale: the regime where advanced computation and modern experimental techniques meet.
Finally, COST Action P19 “Multiscale Modeling of Materials” will organise a session in which the recent advances related to the theoretical and practical aspects of the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) are addressed through a presentation of the recent developments in research performed by the Institute of Energy Technology - ETH Zurich; CUI – Scientific & Parallel Computing group - University of Geneva and the University of Lyon - INSA Lyon – CREATIS.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
