Description: Computational nanoscience is a rapidly developing field providing computer simulational and theoretical background for understanding of nanoscale phenomena and nanotechnology research. Computational nanoscience overarches the whole spectrum of science including biology, physics, engineering, material science and chemistry, describing the behaviour of matter at the scale of individual atoms and molecules. This session will concentrate on novel computational approaches used in nanoscale research, including: Quantum Monte Carlo, Molecular Dynamics, Density Functional Theory, Time-Dependent Quantum Dynamics Simulations, Interaction of Nanoscale Materials and Laser Fields, Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Materials, Multiscale Modeling of Nanoscale Materials, Novel Computational Approaches, Electronic Structure Calculations and Attoscale Dynamics.

Description: Graphene discovery has represented a milestone for novel 2D materials, which today occupy the physics frontiers either from theoretical or experimental aspects. Silicene, germanene, stanene and phosphorene, silicon/germanium/tin and black phosphorous, sheets are such 2D layered materials beyond graphene. They are new born elemental 2D systems, conjectured to be robust topological insulators, a new highly promising phase of matter. Furthermore, they are predicted to play a major role in the future nano/micro-electronics, spanning from energy saving to FET devices and quantum computing. After the great success of the symposium on two-dimension layered materials, which has taken place in 2014 in Madrid, this second edition will address key issues related to their exceptional structural and electronic properties, furnishing an interesting platform for developing heuristic ideas.

Description: Many differential equations, which are of interest in the physical sciences and engineering, exhibit geometric properties that are preserved by the dynamics. Discrete Lagrangian integrators, as a special type of geometric integration, has been recent interest in developing numerical schemes that preserve as many of these geometric invariants as possible. Such methods are of particular interest for problems that can be described by geometric mechanics, wherein the preservation of physical invariants such as the energy, momentum, and symplectic form can be important when simulating long-time dynamics of such systems. The aim of the session is to bring together researchers in mathematics, computer science, physical sciences, and engineering, who are interested in the broad area of numerical methods (for ordinary differential equations to partial differential equations) that preserve the underlying structure of the governing differential equations.
