The eSSENCE e-science program welcomes you to

The 2016 national eSSENCE meeting on
“Multiscale materials (and molecular) modelling”
at the Ångström Laboratory, 7-9 June 2016 (lunch-to-lunch)

WEBSITE AND REGISTRATION: https://sites.google.com/site/emultiscale2016/

The website will be updated regularly.”Save the dates” – registration will open in March.

We use the word “materials” in a broad sense, including molecules, liquids and interfaces. We will discuss both method/model development and interesting applications.
This year we will have the European dimension as a special theme for one of the sessions. With the support from VR, Sweden will now become a member of CECAM (http://www.cecam.org) and Uppsala University will be the host.

Moreover, the latest version of the European Roadmap for Modelling from the European Materials Modelling Council (http://emmc.info) will be presented and debated.

The meeting is free of charge, including all meals. Day 1 will start at 13.00 and end with a poster session, drinks and a buffet dinner. Day 2 is a full scientific day plus conference dinner; the meeting will end mid-day on Day 3.

Invited keynote speakers are:

Georg Kresse (U of Vienna)
Prof. Kresse is the main developer of the VASP program, which is the world’s most
used electronic structure code for materials (more than 2500 groups from universities
and industry).

Peter Kusalik (U of Calgary)
Prof. Kusalik will speak about collective molecular phenomena and models for nuclea-
tion and growth on the theme “Simulation of crystallization: Past, present and future”.

Dominic Tildesley (CECAM, EPFL Lausanne)
Prof. Tildesley is the Director of CECAM and an expert on computer simulation
of liquids. He will speak about CECAM and challenges of coarse-grained simulations
that go beyond electrons and atoms.

Klaus Koch (U of Stellenbosch, South Africa)
South Africa is the world\u2019s largest supplier of Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) and
Prof. Koch is an experimentalist with a great interest in simulations. He will discuss
the challenges to unravel the nature of the PGMs, and the challenges involved in
trying to meet the needs of the PGM industry.
