We are pleased to inform you that the Computational Material Design and Quantum Engineering Laboratory, Research Group of Engineering Physics, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB), in cooperation with the Kasai Laboratory of the Osaka University will organize 2nd Asia Computational Materials Design Workshop. This workshop will provide lectures of leading-edge researches in Computational Materials Design (CMD) Science and hands-on practical training of the quantum simulation. The invited speakers are the top experts in this field.
Computational materials design is a computational approach aimed at developing new materials with specified properties and functionalities. The basic ingredient is the use of quantum simulations to solve the materials science problems in order to design a material that suits this specification. CMD has the high potentiality to impact the real industrial research and development.
Although the subject covered in this workshop is advance nevertheless we will present it to you step by step. The workshop will be started with the overview of possible roles of CMD in Indonesia, some CMD applications, CMD in surface interactions and nano-spintronics, and followed by the development of quantum simulators. For this workshop we purposefully choose Machikaneyama 2000 for the hands on experience of CMD. Machikaneyama 2000 is an open source application, a sophisticated KKR-CPA-LDA ab initio electronic structure calculation code, which has been developed by Prof. Hisazumi Akai in Osaka University. Prof. Akai will give an introductory lecture on the DFT calculations with the Machikaneyama. On quantum molecular dynamics simulation the workshop will discuss State-Senri code. Another CMD advanced case study in this workshop will be on Naniwa 2001, a quantum calculation code for atomic motion.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the campus of Institute of Technology Bandung. You will also find pleasant places to see and enjoy recreation around the city of Bandung.
Workshop duration : 4 full-days
Schedule : July 19-22, 2010
Venue : Jln. Ganesha 10 Bandung 40132
