Welcome to the website of the Atomistic Simulation of Carbon-Based Materials (ASCM) Workshop, which will take place in downtown Helsinki, Finland from 10th April to 12th April 2019. The workshop will focus on the state of the art on atomistic simulation of carbon and related materials and nanostructures. ASCM is co-organized by Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. The organizing committee members are:

  • Dr. Flyura Djurabekova, University of Helsinki (Finland)
  • Dr. Volker Deringer, University of Cambridge (UK)
  • Dr. Miguel Caro, Aalto University (Finland)


The workshop will feature invited and contributed presentations on atomistic simulations of carbon-based systems (including materials with chemical or structural similarities), including their crystalline, nanostructured, and/or amorphous phases. We will cover topics ranging from theory and methods development (quantum mechanics, interatomic potentials, and machine learning) to the realistic simulation of entire nanostructures, with a central theme: carbon and related materials.

We have a very exciting roster of local and international invited speakers.

This workshop is supported by Aalto University’s CECAM node, the Psi-K network, and Aalto’s Applied Physics Department through the CMMP network.
