FINAL CCTN08 programme Schedule (.pdf)


Welcome to the home page of the CCTN08 symposium, which will place in Montpellier, France, on June 28, 2008.

Symposium Organizers:

  • Stephan Roche (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique DRFMC, France)
  • Jean-Christophe Charlier (University of Louvain, Louvain la Neuve, Belgium)
  • Hisashi Nakamura (Research Org. for Inform. Sci. & Technology - RIST, Japan)
  • David Tomanek (Michigan State University - MSU, USA)


This satellite workshop of the conference will focus on the theoretical investigation and quantitative assessment of unique physical properties of nanotube systems and devices, using advanced computational approaches. The program will highlight the computational challenges in modelling carbon-based materials (nanotubes, graphene) and devices, including the use of advanced ab initio developments, multiscale approaches and order N schemes.
