The 1st International Workshop Hangzhou 2004

                        on Simulational Physics

November 5 - 7, 2004

Zhejiang University

Hangzhou 310027, China 

This workshop intended to be parallel in nature to the one organized by the Center for Simulational Physics at The University of Georgia in Athens, GA, U.S.A.. The main purpose of this workshop is to stimulate research and cooperation in simulational physics, and related subjects such as computational biology and finance etc. We hope to create an atmosphere for discussion and cooperation in this informal workshop and wish to encourage more researchers to engage in computer simulations.

Topics of interest include Monte Carlo simulation, molecular dynamics and numerical study of physical problems such as materials growth, granular flow, structural and magnetic phase transitions, polymers, surfaces and interfaces, genomics, strongly correlated electron systems, complex network and econophysics.

There will be invited talks (30-60 mins) and contributing talks (20 mins). The number of participants is expected to be about 40. No registration fee will be charged, and a double room costs $22 (200 yuan) per night. Two students may share a double room with two beds. Lunches and a banquet will be offered by the workshop. The afternoon of Nov. 7 will be for sightseeing, and an extra one-day tour to Zhou-Zhuang (周庄) will be organized on Nov. 8.

If you like to present a talk, please give the title and possible abstract. Graduate student participation is encouraged, and 10 fellowships for students are available for accommodation. Please send the CV and publication list for application. The deadline for receiving the application is Oct. 15.  After the deadline hotel rooms and fellowships are not guaranteed.

To advertise the scientific researches of all participants, everyone is encouraged to submit
an abstract of representative publications including references to the webpage of the workshop,
even if not presenting a talk.
