Joint ICTP-IAEA School and Workshop on Fundamental Methods for Atomic, Molecular and Materials Properties in Plasma Environments

PCCP is pleased to support the 2018 Joint ICTP-IAEA School and Workshop on Fundamental Methods for Atomic, Molecular and Materials Properties in Plasma Environments which will be held on 16-20 April 2018, at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Miramare, Trieste, Italy.

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will jointly organize this school and workshop on Fundamental Methods for Atomic, Molecular and Materials Properties in Plasma Environments. The one-week event at ICTP will provide training and information exchange for computational scientists working on models and data for atomic, molecular and materials processes relevant to fusion energy research, industrial plasmas, laser-produced plasmas, astrophysical plasmas, and warm and hot dense matter. The training is aimed at advanced PhD students, postdocs and other young researchers. The information exchange will span several disciplines from molecules to materials and from method developments to data treatments. Topics related to energetic events and electronically excited states are emphasized throughout the programme.

The schedule features lectures by international experts, invited and contributed research talks, posters and discussion sessions, with ample time available for interaction and discussions.

Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics is delighted to sponsor the prizes for the best posters at the meeting.

Submit your abstract before 20 November 2017.

10th Liblice Conference on the Statistical Mechanics of Liquids

The 10th Liblice Conference on the Statistical Mechanics of Liquids will be taking place at the Šumava National Park in Srní, Czech Republic between the 17-22 June 2018.

The upcoming 10th conference will follow the spirit of the previous meetings to provide an effective forum for contacts and for the exchange of ideas, with an emphasis on discussions rather than on formal presentations, highlighting achievements and challenges in both theoretical and applied aspects of the discipline. The program will include recent developments in the fields of:

  • Liquid-state theories
  • Molecular simulation: methodology and force field development
  • Fluid interfaces and confined fluids
  • Aqueous systems, including electrolytes
  • Soft matter
  • Nucleation; supercooled/glassy states
  • Active matter

The deadline for registration and abstract submission is 17 December 2017.
