Mathematical & Computational Nanoscience 2007

Victoria University of Wellington 09/12/2007 - 11/12/2007

A one-off 3-day symposium on Mathematical and Computational Nanoscience to be held at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand on December 9-11, 2007. This symposium is aimed at mathematicians and theoretical or computational scientists interested in nanoscale science and technology. As such we are seeking contributions to the symposium concerning the development and application of modelling and simulation techniques to nanoscale phenomena. This meeting is timed to immediately precede the Joint Meeting of the American Mathematics Society and the New Zealand Mathematics Society to be held in Wellington from December 12-15 (see ).

We are hoping for 60-70 attendees with approximately 6 plenary talks, 6 invited talks and 24 contributed talks over the three days. We will also be accepting poster presentations.

Abstracts must be submitted by October 12th at


  • Mathematical Modelling
  • Kinetic Monte Carlo Methods
  • Accelerated Molecular Dynamics
  • Coarse Grained Methods
  • Concurrent Hybrid Schemes
  • Hierarchical Multiscale Modelling
  • Other applications of mathematics in nanoscience
