Electronic Structure Theory for the Accelerated Design of Structural Materials

26-30 October 2015, Moscow, Russia

Conference Program

Welcome to the International Symposium and Workshop “Electronic Structure Theory for the Accelerated Design of Structural Materials” website!

 

Materials modeling and development laboratory is happy to invite you to take part in the first International Symposium and Workshop “Electronic Structure Theory for the Accelerated Design of Structural Materials”.

Conference takes place in Moscow at National University of Science and Technology "MISIS” from 26-30 October 2015. The conference is supported by international organisation Psi-k.

The aim of the meeting is to assess the state of the art in applications of the electronic structure theory for the knowledge-based design of structural materials. Particularly the conference will focus on the physical principles of accelerated materials design, the need to significantly reduce the number of approximations in theoretical calculations, to explicitly treat in computer simulations conditions at which materials operate, and to promote direct interaction between theory and experiment. We will discuss challenges in applications of the novel techniques within the field for simulations of materials properties at most realistic conditions in which they operate in tools and devices, e.g. in the presence of electronic, vibrational and magnetic excitations, structural and chemical disorder.

A key question will be whether we can shorten significantly the time it takes to discover advanced materials and to prove their usefulness for the commercial market.

The format will consists of presentations followed by discussions and focused Discussion Sessions. The speakers will include the acknowledged leaders in the field of electronic structure as well as junior scientists, such as post-doctoral fellows, deeply involved in current developments.

The working language of the event is English.
