Theoretical modeling and computer simulation are now powerful tools to aid in the interpretation of experimental results and provide new insights into scientific observations.
This one-day workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalist to:
- share knowledge of the tools and techniques now available for modeling
- foster synergy and collaboration between researchers, particularly in interdisciplinary areas
- contribute to a better understanding of structure properties and behaviour of matter at the nanoscale
To make the event a success, we need a similar group of experimentalists to engage in a vibrant dialogue about their specific theoretical and computation needs.
Please register to confirm your attendance for this interesting day of learning and exchange.
