This is the third announcement of the ICNAAM session 148 entitled "Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics Techniques for Modeling Charged Clusters and Droplets" that will take place on the island of Rhodes (Greece) during the ICNAAM 2013 conference (see the ICNAAM web site at http://www.icnaam.org/ for more details). The date of this session has been fixed to September 22, 2013. This is the first day of the ICNAAM conference.
This session will be dedicated to the presentation of numerical methods suitable to model large charged clusters or droplet-like systems and to the direct applications of these methods. Possible methods tackled during the session might cover:
- Methods to model charged or neutral droplets (quantum droplets such as large helium clusters, coarse-grained droplets to model biochemical systems, etc.)
- Methods to model reactivity inside classical or quantum droplets.
- Methods to improve the exploration of configuration or phase space.
- Numerical techniques to make use of CPU and/or GPU resources to improve execution speed and convergence.
The methods presented should help determining structural, thermodynamic and/or dynamic properties of large clusters or droplet-like systems. Possible applications may cover (but are not limited to) :
- Rare-gas, carbon, silicon or metal clusters,
- Doped helium clusters,
- Electrosprayed droplets,
Any participant that wants to submit a paper (or several papers) to this session for presenting it (them) during the ICNAAM conference should send it to me for review by July 8 (extended deadline). The papers should not exceed 4 A4 pages and must respect AIP templates (see the ICNAAM conference web site at http://www.icnaam.org for more details). I can provide (upon request) a folder with AIP latex templates for those interested in writing their paper(s) with LATEX. Accepted papers will be published in a volume of the AIP Conference Proceedings.
I look forward to seeing you in Rhodes on September 22,
David A. Bonhommeau.
