Previous Schools and Workshops:

NIS Centre of Excellence Meeting:
Ab Initio Simulation of the Properties of Crystalline Surfaces and Interfaces: Progress and Prospects
The ab initio simulation of complex chemical objects is becoming standard practice in many branches of Material Science. The case of crystalline surfaces interfaces is a particularly difficult one because of the low symmetry highly defective nature of these systems. More powerful and accurate software is needed, and sometimes new interpretative tools are required in this area of research. In its two sessions, the present meeting intends to highlight recent progress and prospective work in these directions. Activity taking place in the frame of NIS will be illustrated, but other lines of progress will be also represented at the meeting through contributions from outstanding scientists (Parrinello, Resta, Catti, Harrison, Cossi...).
