Date: 22 September 2022 to 24 September 2022
Location: Urban Center, Corso Camillo Benso Conte di Cavour, 2/2, Trieste - IT

Saturday Septemeber 24, 2022 - from 11:30 to 12:45 @ the Urban Center in Trieste (IT) in the framework of the event Trieste Next some of our MaX scientisct will gather in the panel discussion "QUANTUM ALCHEMY: HOW COMPUTERS HELP CREATE NEW MATERIALS".

The discussion is organized by SISSA and CNR-IOM with the participation of: 
Carlo Cavazzoni, senior vicepresident of Cloud Computing Leonardo
Nicola Marzari, professor of Theory and Simulation of Materials, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and MaX PI
Elisa Molinari, full professor of Theoretical Condensed-Matter Physics Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia and MaX Coordinator
Ivano Tavernelli, global leader for advanced algorithms for quantum simulations IBM Research Lab Zurich

The discussion will be chaired by Stefano Baroni, full professor of Theoretical Condensed-Matter Physics, SISSA and MaX PI

From Stone to Silicon age, the seasons of human civilization are named after materials. The concurrent emergence of a new powerful formulation of the equations of quantum mechanics and of clever algorithms to implement them on computers able to perform one billion-billion operations per second is now igniting a paradigm shift in materials research. The complex properties of the materials that define present and future technologies can thus be not only understood, but even designed. Some of the leading researchers in the field will share their vision of computer-aided materials discovery.

The event will be held in English without translation.
