Scope and venue:

RingbergMolecular-level modelling in catalysis research has now advanced to a stage that allows a controlled synthesis of more complex systems. On this way towards the meso- and macroscopic world electronic structure theory needs to be linked (without any noticeable groove or seam) with statistical-mechanics treating the manyfold of possible elementary processes. The intention of the workshop is to bring together experts from a wide range of corresponding fields to discuss the possibilities of such a multi-scale modelling.

With 40-50 participants and Schloss Ringberg's nice setting at the foothills of the Bavarian alps, overlooking the famous Tegernsee, the workshop will provide a stimulating atmosphere for deep, informal discussions between the experts from hitherto somehow separate communities.
