EU-JAPAN Workshop 2016

18-30 September 2016
Peter Grünberg Institute, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany

EU-JAPAN Workshop on Computational Materials Design and Realization for Spintronics, Moltronics, Quantronics, Superconductivity and Topotronics


Purpose of the Workshop

Based on the discussions through the long-term workshop, we will create the new concepts and proposals for the future EU-JAPAN collaborations related to the computational materials design and realization of energy-saving, energy-creation materials and devices, such as spintronics, moltronics, quantronics, superconductivity and topotronics.

The discussion leaders will organize the session from 9:30-11:30 (maybe to 12:30), or, 14:00-16:00 (maybe to 17:00) per each day with a short introduction of the purpose and the goals of the session, where two or three speakers talk and keep continue the discussions through the lunch, and after the lunch or evening he can also organize a small discussion meeting in the city, if needed.

Basically, each talk is organized with 30 min presentation and 30 min discussion (creation of new concepts and new proposal through the discussion, therefore, please keep to the scheduled time). Based on the presentations and discussions, the discussion leader will prepare the repot of new proposal and summary in the wrap-up session. We will finalize the summary and new proposal on the last day and distribute it to the participants for the future collaborations.
