Workshop on Computations in Nanotechnology

The workshop is being held to celebrate the new computer cluster
sponsored by the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute,
and is sponsored by the Technion, RBNI and Sun Computers.

Abstract submission: One (A4) page abstracts in pdf format for poster presentations are welcome from both the computational analysis and the experimental community. Topics should involve methods or problems with (proven or possible) relevance to computations in Nanotechnology. Abstracts from nanotechnology esperimentalists looking for computational partners are especially welcome. Please send to Joan Adler ( A link to your presentation or website on the internet is also welcome.

Abstracts of invited talks and tutorials are linked from the program page .
