International Workshop Hangzhou 2007
on Simulational Physics
November 10 - 11, 2007
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
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.
be invited talks (30-60 mins) and contributed talks (20 mins). The number of
participants is expected to be about 30-50. No registration fee will be
charged, and a double room costs $25 (200 Yuan) per night. Two students may
