ViCoM Conference: From Electrons to Phase Transitions

  • Conference Call
  • The Vienna Com­pu­ta­tional Mate­ri­als Lab­o­ra­tory is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in a ViCoM Con­fer­ence enti­tled “From Elec­trons to Phase Tran­si­tions”, held Feb­ru­ary 26 – 28, 2014 in Vienna, Aus­tria.

    Scope of the Conference

    The descrip­tion of phase tran­si­tions is among the most chal­leng­ing tasks in solid state physics. From an elec­tronic point of view, an accu­rate descrip­tion of phase tran­si­tions requires highly accu­rate energy dif­fer­ences between com­pet­ing phases, a goal that is not yet achiev­able using rou­tine ab ini­tio meth­ods. The con­fer­ence will give an overview of meth­ods beyond DFT that show promise in this area. The descrip­tion of the ionic degrees of free­dom is equally com­pelling, often neces­si­tat­ing sophis­ti­cated sam­pling meth­ods to accu­rately cap­ture the entropic con­tri­bu­tions and their changes along the tran­si­tion path­way. The con­fer­ence will high­light promis­ing new devel­op­ments in this area, as well as, tech­no­log­i­cally rel­e­vant applications.

    From Elec­trons to Phase Tran­si­tions is an inter­na­tional con­fer­ence orga­nized within the frame­work of the Spe­cial Research Area “SFB ViCoM” (funded by the Aus­trian Sci­ence Fund – FWF; Spokesper­son: Georg Kresse, Vice-​Spokesperson: Karsten Held).

    Sub­mis­sion Guidelines

    Abstract Guidelines

    Abstracts must be writ­ten in plain text and should not exceed 250 words (includ­ing ref­er­ences). Note that all accepted abstracts will be pub­lished on this web­site and can be down­loaded dur­ing and after the conference.

    Accep­tance Process

    Please send in your abstracts before Decem­ber 1st 2013. Accep­tance noti­fi­ca­tions will be sent before Decem­ber 13th 2013. You will receive an e-​mail with a link to a secure web­site that allows you to pay the con­fer­ence fee (via credit card or bank trans­fer). The fee has to be payed before Jan­u­ary 1st 2014. Pay­ment of the fee serves as con­fir­ma­tion of participation.

    Con­fer­ence Fee

    If you apply/​register (with or with­out con­tri­bu­tion) before Decem­ber 1st 2013 the con­fer­ence fee is € 150.

    If you reg­is­ter after Decem­ber 1st 2013 the con­fer­ence fee is € 200. After Decem­ber 1st only reg­is­tra­tions with­out con­tri­bu­tion are possible.
