Dear All,

You are most cordially invited to the ICTP Webinar Colloquium by Prof. 
Giulia Galli on "Materials and Molecules Through In-silico Lenses" on 
Wednesday 2 December at 16:00 hrs CET"

*Pre-registration* is required at the following url: 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing 
information about joining the webinar.

The talk will be available on livestream via the ICTP website, and also 
on ICTP's YouTube channel.

*Biosketch: *Giulia Galli is the Liew Family professor of Electronic 
Structure and Simulations in the Pritzker School of Molecular 
Engineering and Professor of Chemistry at the University of Chicago. She 
also holds a Senior Scientist position at Argonne National Laboratory, 
where she is the director of the Midwest Integrated Center for 
Computational Materials. Prior to joining UChicago, she was Professor of 
Chemistry and Physics at UC Davis (2005-2013) and the head of the 
Quantum Simulations group at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory 
(LLNL, 1998-2005). She holds a Ph.D. in Physics from the International 
School of Advanced Studies in Italy. She is a Fellow of the American 
Physical Society (APS), American Association for the Advancement of 
Science and an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and 
Science and the National Academy of Sciences. She is the recipient of 
numerous awards, including the LLNL Science and Technology Award, the US 
Department of Energy Award of Excellence, the Materials Research Society 
Theory Award, the APS David Adler Lectureship in Materials Physics, the 
Feynman Nanotechnology Prize in Theory, the medal of the Schola Physica 
Romana and the Tomassoni-Chisesi award by the Sapienza University of 
Rome. Her research activity is focused on the development and use of 
theoretical and computational methods to understand and predict the 
properties and behavior of materials (solids, liquids and 
nanostructures) from first principles (

*Abstract: *Materials are enablers of innovation in science and 
technology and have brought about revolutionary changes to society: 
familiar examples are the materials used in transistors and in batteries 
that have become omnipresent in our daily lives. In this talk we will 
tell an atomic-level story of how we can predict and design materials 
for next generation technologies, by combining theories based on quantum 
mechanics, software running on high performance computers and 
ever-growing amounts of data. We aim to tackle two outstanding 
challenges: designing sustainable materials to efficiently capture solar 
energy and enable technologies deployable in both developed and 
developing countries, and inventing materials to build radically novel 
sensors and computers, to move in earnest into the quantum information age

The talk will be followed by a question/answer session.
