discussion meeting on

"Catalysis from First Principles"

  July 5 - 8, 2000

   sponsored by the  Psi-k networkCECAM , et alli


Local organizers:

Coordinates (in space and time):

This is a follow-up of a  meeting the same organizers had held in May 1999.

Workshop Objective:
The objective of the meeting is to review the status of total-energy calculations as a basis for modeling and understanding of chemical reactions on solid surfaces. A strong focus will be placed on the prospects of calculational methods becoming a tool in the design of new catalysts. An additional objective is to bring together researchers from the electronic structure, the molecular-dynamics, the statistical physics community as well experimental surface-science and catalysis researchers from academia and industry.

Workshop Format:
A small meeting with  not more than 40 participants, in the approximate ratio theory/experiment/industry=2/1/1. There will be review talks, short presentations and ample time for discussion including short (one overhead) contributions on specific topics.

We will also organize a poster session.

Conference Fee:
The conference fee is EURO 200,-- and has to be paid before May 1, 2000. It also covers lunches and dinners on Thursday and Friday.

Where to stay at and how to reach CECAM:
