Symposium on "Multiscale Modeling of Defects in Solids" - SES 2008

Vikram Gavini's picture

A symposium on "Multiscale Modeling of Defects in Solids" is being organized at the 2008 SES conference in Champaign, Illinois (Oct 12-Oct 15). The conference website is: . To submit abstracts to this symposium please use the abstract submission form and select the symposium title. The abstract submission deadline is June 2, 2008. Below is the description and scope of the symposium (which can also be found at ):

This symposium aims to bring together researchers involved in the modeling of defects such as vacancies, dislocations, cracks, interfaces, surfaces and nano-clusters, from quantum-mechanical, atomistic and mesoscopic  viewpoints.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, multi-physics aspects of materials properties with emphasis on defects in materials including energetics, nucleation, kinetics, and their influence on materials properties. Theoretical, computational and modeling advances as well as the application of existing methods to study various properties (including structural, electronic and optical) are in the scope of this symposium. The range of physical models spans quantum mechanics based electronic-structure theories, atomistic/molecular dynamics using empirical potentials and continuum mesoscopic models, as well as simplified model systems. Computational techniques include concurrent multiscale methods, spatio-temporal coarse-graining, as well as methods to extract sub-grid models from fundamental theories. 

Organizers: Kaushik Dayal (Carnegie Mellon University), Vikram Gavini (University of Michigan)
