Neutrons matter

7th – 8th November 2017, Villa Wolkonsky and Centro Fermi – Museo Storico della Fisica e Centro Studi e Ricerche Enrico Fermi

Neutrons Matter, the seventh edition of the International Workshop on Electron-volt Neutron Spectroscopy, celebrates the 85th anniversary of the discovery of the neutron by James Chadwick, and the 80th anniversary of the patent issued by the Ministero delle Corporazioni on 27th October 1937 to Enrico Fermi for the use of neutrons to enhance artificial radioactivity. The last discovery took place at the Istituto di Fisica di Via Panisperna at the very heart of Rome. Following a successful sixth edition of this workshop series in the United Kingdom in 2014, we aim to bring to the fore and highlight the most recent (and quite exciting) advances in the field, with an emphasis on the use of the technique across condensed matter research, as well as the concurrent use of contemporary computational materials modelling. The workshop will be held in Rome, in the beautiful setting of Villa Wolkonsky and at the Centro Fermi – Museo Storico della Fisica e Centro Studi e Ricerche Enrico Fermi.


MaX prize for frontier HPC applications in materials research – 2017

MaX – Materials at the Exascale is a European Centre of Excellence launched by the European Union to
enable advancements in materials research via high-performance and high-throughput computing towards
the exascale. Its activities are largely centred on frontier developments and applications of four
MaX flagship
codes, Quantum ESPRESSO, SIESTA, Fleur, Yambo,
and a workflow manager, Aiida. Further information about
MaX, its partner teams, and its activities is available at
With this call, MaX establishes a prize to recognize frontier research, performed anywhere in the world, that
enabled by Quantum ESPRESSO, SIESTA, Fleur, Yambo, Aiida, and/or contributes to their advancement:

Bussola Hotel – Lungomare dei Cavalieri, 16 – 84011 Amalfi SA

9th Mediterranean Conference on Nano-Photonics

The Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems (Cnr-Isasi) is hosting the 9th Mediterranean Conference on Nano-Photonics (MediNano-9) on 3-4 of September 2017, in Amalfi, Italy.

Nano-photonics is one of the most appealing fields having large variety of academic as well industrial applications. MediNano is an international gathering inviting participants from research institutes and industries in countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea to present their most recent results as well as review of concepts in various topics related to nano-photonics.

Following the successful gathering of MediNano-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 which were organized in Istanbul (Turkey) in 2008, Athens (Greece) in 2009, in Belgrade (Serbia) in 2010, Rome (Italy) in 2011, Barcelona (Spain) in 2012, Lyon (France) in 2013, Tel Aviv (Israel) in 2015, Athens (Greece) in 2016 and now in Amalfi (Italy) in 2017.

The previous meetings had more than 100 participants on average from more than 25 countries (mostly but not only Mediterranean) presented the highlights of their recent achievements in the field of nano-photonics.

1st International School on Computational Microscopy 2017

The international school on computational microscopy (Iscm) is organized by the Institute of applied sciences and intelligent systems (Isasi-Cnr). Its first edition, Iscm2017, will be focused on ‘Label free and quantitative phase imaging techniques’. The school will be held at Hotel La Bussola in Amalfi (Italy), from the 5th to the 8th of September 2017.

Computational microscopy is an emerging technology which extends the capabilities of the classical optical microscopy with the help of computation. In particular, the complexity of imaging systems moves from the optical arrangements to the computational part, which mainly consists into the smart data manipulation to achieve high-quality imaging capabilities.
The International school on computational microscopy school (Iscm) aims to provide the basic information about these unconventional imaging systems and relative advanced computational methods. Each edition of the school will be focused on one main topic in the field of computation microscopy.

The 4-day program is supposed to host more than 8 top-level international speakers, and 50 young researchers participating.
