Workshop: Modern Approaches to Coupling Scales In Materials Simulations

From Electronic Structure to Applications via Coarse Graining and Machine Learning


Date: 02.07.-04.07.2018

Location: Conference Hotel Jäger von Fall, Lenggries, Bavaria

Conference Fee: 200€ (payable to the conference hotel, accommodation not included)

The workshop will cover current research in multiscale simulation, with a focus on how empirical, coarse-grained or continuum models can be constructed from first-principles calculations. Registration is now open for contributed oral or poster presentations. To apply, send an abstract to or Limited financial support for doctoral students is available upon request. 

Organizers: Harald Oberhofer and Johannes Margraf
