CSD 7: Computational Methods for Carbon Nanostructure Research

Seventh in a cross-disciplinary workshop series that brings together researchers in Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences to explore the increasingly diverse ways that computers are used as part of the scientific discovery process. The workshop will combine formal lectures, short talks, and ample time for informal discussions.

The basic scientific objective of the workshop is to combine the expertise of a group of researchers from graph theory, chemistry and computer science to make advances in chemistry, especially in carbon chemistry, the source of two recent Nobel prizes in chemistry, and especially connected to molecule and nano-circuit design.
