Opening Workshop SimLab Quantum Materials
On April 4 2017, the Opening Workshop for the new Simulation Laboratory Quantum Materials (SLQM) took place at JSC. The workshop featured a number of scientific talks given by leading experts from the Forschungszentrum Juelich, RWTH Aachen University and the Universitè de Liegé. Each talk dealt with diverse and emerging topics in computational Materials Science including correlated electrons materials, topological magnetism, materials for energy, and high-performance computing, just to name a few. The modern and interdisciplinary nature of the topics attracted a very lively audience, comprised of about 50 scientists from all over Germany. Each contribution was followed by constructive discussions, which often spilled over into the break between sessions.
