Presentation

The Intensive Programme (IP) called "When mathematics meets nanosciences - MathNanosci 2011" will consist of a set of short courses  and seminars, with phd students and master students in their last year as target audience. The participation of 30 MSc or PhD students  from the partner universities will be supported by the EC Erasmus Programme.

Mathematics and simulations are enormously stimulated by the challenges of nanoscale modelling. Theoretical questions arise from this context, where mathematics is designed to give answers to problems which are well defined by nanoscientists and where the establishment of new model hierarchies are needed as well. The role that numerical analysts can play to apply mathematical and computational tools developed in other contexts to the understanding, control, design, and optimization of nanostructured materials and functional systems based on nanoscale structures is relevant as well.

The proposed IP aims to respond to all these needs, in the form of an advanced multidisciplinary 2-week programme addressed to both MSc and PhD, to provide both classical and newly developed applied mathematical (theoretical and numerical) competencies with application to nanosciences, together with a selection of contexts arising from applications such as semiconductor devices and applications of new mathematical tools to the modelling of nanostructures (e.g. nanowires).

The programme will be held in the period June 6-17, 2011.


Sponsors

The LLP Italian National Agency will support MathNanoSci IP, with a contribution for living expenses and travel costs for selected Master and PhD students from partners institutions, with priority given to phd students.

We assume to select:

  • a maximum of 30 students (MSc or PhD) for the contribution for travel costs and the contribution for accommodation and subsistence costs: this corresponds to about 5 students for each partner institution.

The contact person of each institution in the Organizing Committee is responsible for the selection of students in their universities. 

Details about Reimbursement

Reservation for lodging and contribution for subsistence costs.

Please notice that students and teachers from partner universities will be hosted in university premises free of charge for the whole period of the IP. Unfortunately, the Erasmus agency applies a very low daily amount for subsistence costs of students (24 euro per day, both for lodging and full board). That's why, in addition to the accommodation, we can confirm that we will only be able to offer students free access to the university canteen (open on working days). We hope we'll be able to offer some additional support to students, but we cannot guarantee anything at the moment.
