Shanghai International Crystallographic School
working with Bilbao Crystallographic Server

The aim of the school is to provide an introduction to group theoretical methods and tools necessary for appropriate applications  of symmetry properties in solid state material science. Special emphasis is given to tutorials on computational crystallography  using the Bilbao Crystallographic Server (BCS) (www.cryst.ehu.es) for the study of specific problems in solid state physics, like phase  transitions, and their symmetry-mode analysis, comparison between crystal structures, magnetic symmetry and its applications in the description of magnetic structures, etc. The applications of BCS tools to ab initio calculations is specifically discussed for the study of ferroelectric polarization in organic and inorganic crystalline structures, phonon properties and computational materials design by structure prediction.

The school is intended for scientists in Material Science, Solid State Physics and Crystallography in general and specifically  for graduate students and young researchers interested in a deep and practical knowledge of group theory and crystallography as applied in material science. The maximum number of participant is limited to 70. Official language of the School is English. Location: The school will take place LeHu Hotel in Shanghai University (Baoshan Campus) http://www.lhljt.shu.edu.cn
