THE SCHOOL “Functional Materials for Frontier Energy Issues”

Recently one of the biggest problems over the world is the energy, which usage is increasing more than exponentially, making big damage to the environment. Therefore, it is urgent for materials scientists to propose new materials for energy generation, storage, and transport in order to supply necessary amount of energy and reduce environmental problems. Industrial development for energy production has been performed with a tremendous effort and has already reached the limitation, and it is highly required to study the fundamental aspects of energy issues interning to change drastically the present situation. We, material scientists, now have a good chance to contribute to this important subject. It is necessary to exchange ideas among theoretical and experimental researchers to find the best way to solve this difficult task. Accordingly, we plan to organize SCHOOL to serve good chance for researchers in Asian and other regions to meet and discuss problems face to face.

Within the SCHOOL, plenary lectures of foreign scientific leading experts from India, Japan in area of computer research and experimental development of new materials will be given. The scientific program of school will include the main directions of modern basic and applied researches of materials. Participants of the school for young scientists will receive information on the latest achievements in the field of computer modeling of materials, including nanomaterials, and experimental methods to study their physical and chemical properties of basic and applied researches of materials. To participate in the SCHOOL we have planned to invite students, young scientists and specialists in Novosibirsk.

School for Young Scientists will be held at the Kutateladze Institute of Thermophysics Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences
