Special Symposium

The Modeling & Simulation at the Nanoscale symposium provides the most comprehensive forum for the multidisciplinary nano design, modeling and simulation community. The symposium will feature presentations on the latest applications-focused research and development in computational methods, tools and simulation at the nanoscale. You are invited to submit on topics ranging from theoretical developments through industry-oriented applications. Our 2013 event will include a special session on the contribution of simulation approaches to the Materials Genome Initiative, and will be coordinated with the Nanotechnology Knowledge Infrastructure Symposium.

Topics & Application Areas

  • Molecular Modeling
  • Multiscale Modeling
  • Nanomaterials design using quantum chemistry
  • Novel modeling methods & theory
  • Modeling & simulation of polymer nanostructures
  • Modeling catalytic surfaces & reactions
  • Materials genome initiative
  • Other
