Psi-k Research Conference: Computational Oxide Spintronics
Cranage Hall, Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, UK

- 5 Days
The main purpose of this research conference (sponsored by the Network of the European Science Foundation “Advanced Concepts in ab-initio Simulations of Materials (Psi-k2)”) is to provide an active forum for discussion on the state-of-the-art - including challenges and perspectives - of the theoretical modeling for transition metal oxides. What we propose is a “Gordon-research”-like conference lasting 3.5 days consisting only of invited/plenary speakers and of a poster session with lots of time for discussion. While the main focus will be on "ab-initio" simulations, a strong interface to many-body physics treated on the basis of realistic model Hamiltonians will be included and a few leading scientists in experiments will be invited.
