ASCM2019 will cover a wide range of topics regarding the simulation of carbon and related materials and nanostructures:

These lectures, given by leading experts, aim to provide all participants with an overview of the current state-of-the-art. They are not meant as tutorials, but they are meant to be more comprehensive than “normal” invited talks.

  • DFT and beyond: many-body van-der-Waals interactions, RPA computations, etc.
  • Machine learning and data-driven approaches
  • State-of-the-art empirical interatomic potentials; QM/MM

  • Nanostructure and thin-film formation and growth
  • Materials under extreme conditions (e.g., irradiation damage in graphite)
  • Materials for chemistry applications and catalysis
