The 3rd International Workshop Hangzhou 2006

                        on Simulational Physics

November 16 - 18, 2006

Zhejiang University

Hangzhou 310027, China 

(Supported in part by Yongqian Tang Foundation of Zhejiang University
and National Natural Science Foundation of 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 contributed talks (20 mins). The number of participants is expected to be about 60-80. No registration fee will be charged, and a double room costs $24 (200 Yuan) per night. Two students may share a double room with two beds. Lunches and a banquet will be offered by the workshop.

If you would like to present a talk, please give the title and possible abstract. The dead line for submitting a talk is Oct. 15. 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 application of a fellowship is Oct. 15.  After the deadline fellowships are not guaranteed. First applications will be given better consideration.

To advertise the scientific research 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.
