ThUL School on Actinide Chemistry 2017

We kindly invite young researchers to attend the ThUL school on computational actinide chemistry that will be organized this year by the Institute of Nuclear Waste Management (IEK-6) at Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH (FZJ – Research Centre Jülich), Germany. The school will cover the main topics related to atomistic modeling of actinide-bearing materials with the lecturing focusing on the combination of computational modeling and experimental techniques for characterization of nuclear waste materials. Besides the strictly, topic oriented lectures and practical exercises, the attendants will have an opportunity to learn about the modern, large computational resources hosted by the research center, development of computational software, research performed at the Research Centre Jülich and in the Institute of Nuclear Waste Management in principle.

The school follows a decade long tradition of similar meetings. Previous schools were held in Lille (2006), Cadarache (2007), Karlsruhe (2012-15) and Dresden (2016). Following these successful schools, the 2017 school will be held at the Forschungszentrum Jülich from 16 to 20.10.2017.

Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH with more than 5000 employees is one of the largest research centers in Europe. It conducts research in the fields of Materials Science, Energy, Climate and Supercomputing. It hosts some of the most powerful computational resources and historically is renowned for nuclear science-related research, with the current focus on nuclear waste management.

The school is aimed at early career scientists (PhD students and postdocs) in the area of computational and experimental chemistry, physics and materials science of actinide-bearing materials. The language of the school is English and the attendance is free of charges.

The school will consist of lectures and practical sessions in computational actinide science. The topics will be of general character and are aimed at a more general audience.

Persons interested in attending the ThUL school should contact Dr. Piotr Kowalski ([email protected]).
