SECOND CIRCULAR

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We are glad to invite you to participate in the Second Conference of the Asian Consortium for Computational Materials Science (ACCMS-2), which will be organized in Novosibirsk (Akademgorodok) Russia during July 14-16, 2004. The first conference ACCMS-1 was held in Bangalore, India in November 2001.

The Asian Consortium for Computational Materials Science has been set up to nurture and promote research and developmental activities in computational materials science in Asian countries. Computational materials science has emerged as a distinct multidisciplinary branch of science whose relevance and importance has come from (a) the desire to have a microscopic understanding of complex materials and phenomena, (b) the need to design novel materials with a desired combination of physical, chemical and metallurgical properties, and (c) the possibility to describe the basic inter-atomic interactions in materials via appropriate quantum mechanical and statistical mechanical tools. With the unprecedented growth of computer power and the developments of efficient and smart algorithms and codes, it is now possible to do large scale simulations of real materials with increasing complexity. A synergy amongst a wide variety of disciplines such as physics, chemistry, metallurgy, geology, biology, computer science and information technology is gradually coming to a reality due to advances in computer simulations. The Conference will emphasize all aspects of computational materials science.

ORGANIZER
The Conference is organized by the Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS), Boreskov Institute of Catalysis SB RAS, Institute of Semiconductor Physics SB RAS, and Kutateladze Institute of Thermal Physics SB RAS (Novosibirsk, Russia).

VENUE
The Conference will be held at the Novosibirsk Scientific Centre (Akademgorodok). The scientific program will start on Wednesday morning, July 14, and the last scientific session is scheduled on Friday evening, July 16.
Akademgorodok is the capital of Siberian Science and accounts for about a half of the Division’s research potential (22 research institutes in natural, technical and social sciences). Situated 30 km far from Novosibirsk city, it is a large industrial, scientific and cultural centre of Russia, in the beautiful forest. Akademgorodok is an interesting place not only for the scientific activities, but also for leisure.
The Conference will be located in the House of Scientists in Novosibirsk Scientific Centre.

LANGUAGE
English will be the official Conference language.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM
The deliberations of the ACCMS -2 will cover topics such as density functional theory-based methods, Monte Carlo, molecular and lattice dynamics simulations, tight-binding and effective medium approaches, order-N methods, mixed-basis methods, quasi-continuum approaches, quantum Monte Carlo, genetic algorithm, etc and their applications to different materials.
The Conference program will include Plenary Lectures, Invited Lectures, and Poster Presentations. A few short presentations will be selected from contributions to highlight hot topics and new developments.
