NanoTP WG4 Meeting
Quantum-chemical modelling of large nanostructures
University of Aveiro, Aveiro, Portugal
June 6-9, 2012
Abstract deadline: April 30

Scope:
Nanomaterials is one of the areas of materials science where the involvement of theory, computer modelling and experiment is paramount. This workshop is aimed at bringing together people interested in the quantum-chemical modelling of large nanostructures and other realistic systems with thousands of atoms. It will bring together developers,  end-users and experimentalists, to share new tools and methods adapted to meet the challenges of nanotechnology.

Topics:
- Theory and algorithms adapted to the modelling of large-scale nanostructures,
- Basis set filtration techniques
- Graphical computing architectures
- Multi-scale modelling
- Transport Properties
- Visualisation
- Applications:
- Carbon Nanostructures
- Crystalline semiconductor and metal nanostructures
- Macromolecules
- Composites
- Surfaces and Interfaces

Organisers:
