The CECAM-Lorentz program plans to host a leading-edge workshop in computational simulation and modeling and its application in molecular simulations and related areas. Otherwise, the topic is open.
This year, we would especially like to stimulate applications in Simulation and Modeling for Sustainability. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, modeling of materials and devices for a green(er) economy, molecular simulation for experimental planning, algorithms mitigating the carbon footprint of computationally intensive approaches, training to the responsible use of computational resources, etc.
Strongly interdisciplinary computational science topics, targeting discussions and new synergies between different communities from the natural/exact sciences are welcomed. Organizing teams and participant lists that reflect this interdisciplinary spirit are strongly encouraged.
Diversity, in gender, geographical provenance, career stage, and so forth, of organizing teams and participants are equally encouraged and will be considered in the evaluation of the proposals.
What we seek
• an innovative scientific program, that takes us beyond our current boundaries
• an open and interactive format, with few lectures
What we offer
• a 5-day workshop for up to 25 people between January and March 2025 at CECAM-HQ, Lausanne, Switzerland
• travel and accommodation reimbursements and other organizational costs
• a professional support organization
The call will be open until November 20th, 2023, and short-listed applications will be invited to present a full application by 21 January 2024. The outcome will be communicated by the end of March 2024.
In the first round, an expression of interest should be submitted through the CECAM website.
