Frontiers of Electronic Structure Theory:
Non-equilibrium Phenomena at the Nano-scale

Focussed session at the DPG Spring Meeting: Dresden, Germany, 31 March - 04 April 2014





With more than 7,000 expected participants the DPG Spring Meeting is the largest European physics conference (the second largest physics conference worldwide) covering all aspects of condensed matter and chemical physics, materials science, surface science, as well as polymer and biophysics, and more. For a few years now the conference language has been English.

You are invited to attend the DPG Spring Meeting from 30 March - 04 April 2014 in Dresden and in particular the above noted symposium which is organized by Roberto Car (Princeton University), Kristian Sommer Thygesen (Technical University of Denmark) and Matthias Scheffler (Fritz-Haber-Institut, Berlin).

This is an official symposium at the DPG spring meeting, which is hosted by the surface science division, but topics of talks and posters are not restricted to surface science. It will start Monday probably at 10:30 a.m. and end Friday at noon. There will be invited talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.

Everybody in the wider field of computational materials and electronic structure theory is invited to attend the symposium and to submit an abstract, either for a contributed talk or a poster. Please visit the DPG conference web site and submit your abstract early.

Invited Speakers at the symposium include:

  • Boris Altshuler (Columbia University, New York),
  • Immanuel Bloch (Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, Munich),
  • Michael Bonitz (Christian-Albrechts-University, Kiel),
  • Davide Donadio (Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz),
  • Antoine Georges (College de France, Paris),
  • Jeffrey Neaton (University of California, Berkeley),
  • Mark Ratner (Northwestern University, Evanston).
