S-1: International Workshop of Computational Nano-Materials Design on Green Energy
International Workshop of Computational Nano-Materials Design on Green Energy
■SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP
June 1 - June 3, 2014,
Sigma-Hall, Graduate School of Engineering Science, Toyonaka Campus, Osaka University, Japan
“International Workshop of Computational Nano-Materials Design on Green Energy” is a workshop of S-1 JSPS Core-to-Core Program (A) Advanced Research Program (2012-2017), which provides a forum for discussing all the important issues in computational condensed matter physics and materials science. The principal purpose of the workshop is to offer an opportunity for exchanging ideas and enjoying in-depth discussion in both computational and experimental condensed matter physics.
We discuss the present status of each node, the performance of the 2013FY, and future collaborations related to the computational nano-materials design on Green Energy, such as Spintronics, Moltronics, Photovoltaics, Catalysis, Superconductors, Thermoelectric-Power Materials, Fuel-Cells, Hydrogen Storage, New Computational Methodology, Nano-electronics, Materials and Fabrication Method in the Extreme Conditions. Based on the discussions during the Workshop, we will create the collaboration programs for our future computational nano-materials design projects.
■S-1 JSPS Core-to-Core Program (A) Advanced Research Networks
Topics to be discussed in the workshop include, but not limited to:
- ・Thermoelectric-Power Materials
- ・Hydrogen Storage
- ・New Computational Methodology
- ・Materials and Fabrication Method in the Extreme Conditions
- ・Strongly Correlated Materials
- ・Topological Insulators
Advanced Research Networks (former “Core-to-Core Program”) is designed to create world-class research hubs in research fields considered to be cutting-edge and internationally important in Japan or high-potential research hubs in fields of special importance. These hubs will be built and operated through sustainable collaborative relations established among research/education institutions in Japan and around the world. While advancing research in the fields of these core research hubs, the Core-to-Core Program will also concentrate on fostering the next generations of trailblazing young researchers. Core institutions in Japan and in counterpart countries conduct collaborations. They take the form of joint research projects, seminars, and researcher exchanges, which are to be organized and carried out effectively under the program. Core institutions are expected to continue operation as a research hub after funding under this program has ended.
