Bellaterra, 30-31 MAY: HPCnano: High Performance Computing for Next Generation Nanomaterials & Nanodevice Engineering

The High performance computing for next generation nanomaterials & nanodevices engineering workshop (HPCnano) is an event to be held at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) on 30-31 May 2018. Sponsored by the RED ESPAÑOLA de SUPERCOMPUTACION-RES, the event aims at presenting the use of high performance computing (HPC) in forefront research in nanomaterials, molecular electronics and nanodevices, to potential users of the RES HPC resources.

The event will count on the presence of European experts in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with strong focus on HPC applications, as well as representatives from the RES.

The registration is free of charges but participants should apply. Participant willing to present a poster should notify it in their applications. Due to space limitations, maximum number of participant is 40. To the selected participant the event will provide with: Conference material, 1 lunch and 3 coffee breaks.

To register send a motivation letter and simplified CV to josehugo.garcia@icn2.cat before May 1, 2018.

  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
