|14th November 2012, University of Warwick.
This one day workshop will bring together experimentalists, modellers and simulators with interest in the growth of technologically relevant thin film, monolayer, and other low dimensional materials on solid substrates. The diffusion and aggregation of atoms on the solid substrate is inherently long timescale in nature, requiring application of advanced methods to reach the timescales of interest. Developing accurate interaction potentials for the substrate-film interface is also essential. These and other related challenges require a combination of expertise and methodology. It is hoped that this meeting will lead to new collaborations, and identify best practice in simulating systems of this kind.

The workshop will take place in the Materials and Analytical Sciences (MAS) building, the result of a recent £24M investment by the University of Warwick. Talks will take place in MAS 2.06 with posters and refreshments in the second floor entrance lobby. The MAS building is number 37 on the campus map, with the most convenient entrance being via the indoor link bridge between Physics and Chemistry. Suitable parking is available in car parks 9, 10 and 15. A pay and display system is in operation in car parks 9 and 10. Car park 15 operates a pay-on-foot system.
