The use of neutron scattering to probe the structure and dynamics of condensed matter has grown rapidly since the new state-of-the-art neutron instruments with very high energy and momentum resolutions became available from research reactors and spallation sources.

Most of the research efforts are now concentrated on nanoparticles, nanomagnets, biological materials where there is a growing need to develop theoretical modeling to understand how neutron scattering can best be applied and interpreted in these systems.

The scope of this workshop is to gather the world's experts on theoretical and modeling methods and neutron scattering measurements for study of advanced materials. The subjects include but not limited to:

Spin structure and dynamics in quantum magnets
Charge, spin, and orbital ordering in transition metal oxides
Quantum tunneling and decoherence in nanomagnets
Rotational and vibrational dynamics of hydrogen confined in nanostructures
Structure and dynamics from first-principles and force-field methods
Classical MD, Monte Carlo and other materials modeling techniques
Dynamics in biological systems and protein folding
Liquid, glasses, spin glasses, and orientational glasses in molecular systems
