Quantum Simulations and Design

International Focus Workshop- September 27 - 29, 2011

Scientific coordinators:
Hubert Ebert (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany)
Diemo Ködderitzsch (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany)
Masako Ogura (Osaka University, Japan)

Sofja Roscina / Sabine Strecker (MPI für Physik komplexer Systeme, Dresden, Germany)

The conference is devoted to the rapidly developing field of computational materials design with an emphasis on spin-tronics and related topics. A central interest is to discuss new methods of quantum simulation and quantum design. This includes the development of methods beyond the local density approximation of density functional theory, methods dealing with spin Hall and spin-caloric effects and magnetization dynamics, as well as the application of these methods to the design of new materials and devices.

Invited speakers:

H. Akai (Japan) G. E. W. Bauer (Netherlands) M. Eisenbach (USA)
O. Eriksson (Sweden) K. Inomata (Japan) T. Kotani (Japan)
P. Kratzer (Germany) S. G. Louie (USA) A. H. MacDonald (USA)
I. Mertig (Germany) J. Minar (Germany) A. Rubio (Spain)
A. Oshiyama (Japan) S. Tsuneyuki (Japan) W. Wulfhekel (Germany)
