Scope 
This symposium will focus on simulation approaches, tools, and materials properties at the atomistic scale and will include the presentations on stateoftheart capabilities, challenges, and future directions. Predictions of properties at both zero Kelvin and finite temperatures are of interest.
Specific topic areas for abstract submissions include (but are not limited to):
Density functional theory (DFT) for strongly correlated systems Recent advances in quantum/classic molecular dynamics simulations Electronic and magnetic properties from firstprinciple calculations Properties at finite temperatures from firstprinciple calculations Defects in materials Interface structure and properties Molecular dynamics simulations
This symposium is a part of the 2nd International Conference on Computational Design and Simulation of Materials.
