Nanoscale Simulators in Ireland

Posted on 17 October 2007

From Dr. Simon Elliott, 17th October 2007:

Dear all,

Nanoscale Simulators in Ireland is a new network of scholars and researchers involved in the theory and computation of molecules and materials at the atomic-scale.

At a meeting in UCD Dublin on 31 May 2007 it was decided to establish the network of 'Nanoscale Simulators in Ireland'. This network facilitates collaboration between all those involved in atomistic simulation on the island of Ireland and beyond. It is intended to foster strong links with related international organisations such as CECAM and Psi-k. It builds on the links within Ireland that have grown up through the annual 'Irish Atomistic Simulators Meetings' and the network will continue to run these meetings.

The subject of the network is nanoscale simulation, a field that encompasses much of computational chemistry and physics, but is also relevant to the biosciences, materials science and electronic engineering. A common theme is the investigation of how nanoscale structures, such as electrons, atoms and molecules, lead to observed properties and useful technologies. The simulation methods used are generally based on classical or quantum mechanics (especially, electronic structure theory). In addition, the network is aimed at meso-scale simulation, linking atomistic and continuum length scales.

Membership of the network is free and is open to all individuals with a primary degree or doctorate who are active in the area. We now invite you to join, via the website http://www.nanoscalesimulators.ie

The network has been set up by an interim committee consisting of Prof. Pietro Ballone, Dr Simon Elliott, Dr Donal MacKernan, Dr Charles Patterson and Prof. Nick Quirke, with support from their colleagues in Queen's University Belfast, Tyndall National Institute, UCD Dublin and Trinity College Dublin. We hope that other third-level institutions in Ireland will become involved. Please feel free to contact any of these people for more information.

Please pass this email on to any colleagues who you think may be interested. Apologies in advance for cross-mailing.

Best wishes,
Simon Elliott.
