||During the last few years theoretical approaches to materials for energy applications, like solar energy conversion, thermoelectricity, ect, have become more quantitatives. For example, they allow to guide experiments through a very detailed understanding of the underlying mechanisms, or even through the
screening of a large number of compounds to find new materials with specific properties.
The purpose of this symposium is to highlight the recent computational advances which would find applications in the search of new materials and devices for energy applications.
Therefore the topics for this year will include, but are limited too : transport theory, many body perturbations theory for electrons and phonons, multiscale modeling and datamining.
