Workshop Description

 

In this workshop, we intend to bring together a multidisciplinary group of prominent researchers whose common interest lies in developing multiscale and multiphysics methods for electromagnetic field matter interaction. The goal of such a meeting is to examine challenges in such modeling efforts from both theoretical and computational perspectives, propose pathways to possible solutions and identify collaborations to achieve these goals. More specifically, we propose examining the following goals:

  • Advance rigorous formulations to couple classical and quantum physics of electromagnetic field and matter.
  • Develop multiscale methods in space and time for numerical modeling in electrodynamics and quantum theory.
  • Develop methods that account for long range correlation of disorder, partial order or anisotropies.
  • Advance numerical modeling in electrodynamics and quantum theory: highly-efficient algorithms and fast solvers.
  • Advance coupling of theoretical methods of quantum chemistry such as Density Functional Theory and its applications in nano-Electromagnetics.
  • Advance theory of nanoantennas coupled with quantum objects.
  • Explore physical principles of nanorectennas with their potential applications in solar power harvesting.
  • Advance theory and modeling capabilities for quantum nanomagnetic devices.

This workshop is a unique showcase for new and emerging techniques that bridge between atomistic and quantum mechanical models and methods with methods of electromagnetics and related applications, including microwaves, optics, and magnetism. Topics of interest include advanced theoretical models that couple quantum mechanical and atomistic methods with Maxwell’s equations, the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equations, spin transport equations, and other related equations. Fostering synergistic collaboration is the principal goal of the workshop. The workshop will comprise oral sessions, discussion panels of invited speakers, and a poster session. This format is geared towards an informal atmosphere facilitating discussions and collaboration between the participants.

Transportation

From the airport: Once you exit the terminal at Ben-Gurion airport, you will find a good (and relatively affordable) taxi service named Hadar-Lod that can take you to your hotel. More information regarding this and other transportation routes to and from the airport (and a lot of other relevant information) can be found on the webpage of the Ministry of Tourism.

By car: Nearest exit to us from the Ayalon is Rokach Boulevard.

By bus: Lines 74, 86, 572, 274, 604, and 475 of the Egged bus company stop near the campus. Lines 7, 13, 24, 25, 27, 45, 49, and 112 of the Dan bus company have also nearby stops.

By train: The Tel Aviv University train station is within walking distance of the campus. Bus 112 can be also used to go back and forth between the train station and the campus. For additional information, see the Israel Railways website.
