Materials science provides the foundation for development of future technologies. Essential background for materials science development comes from the use of computational methods. The information provided by the computational methods is indispensable for design of crystals exhibiting required properties, for analysis of the structures and physicochemical properties of materials. The theoretical support helps to identify the problems and then to solve them.

The workshop offers instructions on the methods helpful in studies of crystal and electronic structure of materials as well as their physical properties, important for all kinds of applications. Thanks to the use of such methods, it is possible to predict the structure and properties of a given material, determine its structure, understand the observed features, but also support experimental methods, and narrow the experimental research field to the areas indicated by the theory in order to accelerate the studies and reduce the research costs. The workshop aims at presenting the examples of application of computational techniques in materials science, in order to promote these methods in this field and thus encourage their wider use in solving difficult and scientific problems and technological challenges in the future.

The workshop will be a platform for learning about selected computation methods. It is planned to introduce new applications and to present the software that enables the methods to be used by those taking their first steps in this field.

The Workshop is a satellite meeting to EMRS Fall Meeting 2021, especially to the symposium H devoted to computational methods.
