This workshop is sponsored by the newly formed Nanoscience, Engineering and Computation Institute at Sandia (NECIS). NECIS' primary mission is to support Sandia National Laboratories' response to the American Competitiveness Initiative (ACI) by facilitating research and the rapid transfer, application, and integration of new knowledge between nanoscience, nanoengineering, and high-performance modeling and simulation, fields that are critical to Sandia's national security mission. This workshop's goal is to provide a forum for selected scientists and engineers from the nation's top universities and research laboratories to discuss pressing issues on interfaces in nanoscience and technologies. This collaborative event will establish a common knowledge foundation for this critical area of research, explore how the practices of verification and validation function in scientific development, and identify paths of collaboration and innovation for this community to create a tapestry of methods in experimentation, computation and modeling & simulation.
The goal of this workshop is to identify, define and debate the key issues regarding materials interfaces that are limiting progress in the development of nanotechnology. Speakers and breakout discussion sessions will seek to answer the following questions:
The organizing committee is interested in fostering discussion on experimental,
theoretical and computational approaches towards understanding the science
of nanoscale interfaces. We are soliciting abstracts that address one
or more of the question posed above. A total of eight one-hour survey
talks and/or presentations on novel approaches that stimulate discussion
will be scheduled.
Sponsorship and financial
