International Workshop on Computational Physics and Materials Science

11.12.2007
Progress in Computational Electronic Structure Theory
Gustav-Stresemann- Institut Bonn, Germany

This workshop will highlight recent advances in the calculation of electronic structure of real materials and catalyze the exchange of ideas between the fields, ranging from method development to applications.

In the spirit of the previous workshops in the series, it will bring together practitioners from different parts of the electronic structure community and strive to enable the exchange of ideas between the fields. The focus of the workshop will be on correlated systems, with special emphasis non the modelling of real materials and on quantum Monte Carlo techniques, as well as on the understanding of novel superconductors.

Workshop organizers:
Erik Koch (FZ-Jülich)
Eva Pavarini (FZ-Jülich)
Scientific Committee:
Alfonso Baldereschi (EPFL, Lausanne)
Stefano Baroni (SISSA, Trieste)
Giulia Galli (UC Davis)

Background of the Workshop
This workshop is part of the series of International Workshops on Computational Physics and Materials Science: Total Energy and Force Methods, which started in Oxford (1983) and Braunschweig (1984), and is continued biennially in Trieste (1987, ..., 2005, 2007). In-between the Trieste workshops, Mini-workshops are organized (2004: Paris, 2006: Cambridge) to review the state-of-the-art in Computational Electronic Structure Theory. The present workshop continues that tradition.
Workshop venue and format
The 2 1/2 day workshop will give ample time for discussions of the invited presentations and contributed posters. To allow for intense and informal discussions, the number of participants will be limited to 50. The venue is the Gustav-Stresemann-Institute in Bonn, which is conveniently reached from Cologne/Bonn airport.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
