Title: Final Report for DOE Support of 5th the International Workshop on Oxide Surfaces (IWOX-V)

Abstract

The 5th International Workshop on Oxide Surfaces (IWOX-V) was held at Granlibakken Conference center in Lake Tahoe, CA, January 7-12. The total attendance was ~90. The breakdown of attendees by country is as follows: USA 41 Germany 18 Japan 7 UK 5 Italy 5 France 4 Austria 3 Denmark 3 Cech. Repub. 1 Ireland 1 New Zealand 1 India 1 The technical program included oral sessions on the electronic and magnetic properties of oxide surfaces, surface and interface structure, advances in theory, surface defects, thin film oxides on metals and on oxides, thin film metals on oxides, surface photochemistry, surface reactivity, and interactions with water. Two evening poster sessions had similar themes. As in previous years, the program stimulated significant interest and discussion among the attendees. The local expenses (food and lodging, $918 per person) for eight foreign invited speakers were covered by BES funds. In addition, partial reimbursement for travel ($328 per person) was supported by BES funds for two more foreign invited speakers.

  • Funding was provided for US participants in the 5th International Marine Biotechnology Conference held in Townsville, Australia from September 29 to October 5, 2000. DOE funds were used for travel awards for six US participants in this conference. DOE funds were successfully used to advance participation of US scientists in the important emerging field of marine biotechnology.
  • The primary purpose of IWOX-2 is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing cutting-edge research on metal oxide surfaces. The world's authorities in this field will assemble for this 5-day meeting. This workshop will cover all important aspects of research on the oxide surfaces of bulk and thin film systems, including those relevant to environmental remediation, corrosion, adhesion, and as models for heterogeneous catalysts. This workshop will serve the very important function of discussion, analysis, and assessment of recent progress in both the theoretical understanding of oxide surfaces and the latest experimental techniques, which yield a rich and evermore » growing database.« less
  • Following the tradition of the previous meetings, the Workshop was devoted to recent advances in computational condensed matter physics, based on realistic calculations of the electronic structure of polyatomic systems. The list of topics treated includes: High temperature superconductivity, new materials, alloy phase diagrams, recent developments in density functional theory, new developments in pseudopotential theory, approximate methods. Car-Parrinello approach to molecular dynamics, quantum Monte Carlo treatment of correlation effects, time-dependent correlations and excitation properties, quantum dynamics. Emphasis is put on both theoretical techniques and applications. This report consists primarily of abstracts of reports presented at the workshop. Session titles were:more » Quantum Monte Carlo; Maximum entropy methods; New schemes for electron-ion interaction; High Tc and highly correlated electron systems; Spectroscopy of highly correlated electron systems. Quasiparticle energies; New applications and developments of density functional theory; semiconductor and metal alloys; Surfaces and interfaces; Defects and diffusion; Liquid and amorphous systems.« less
  • This document reports on how the DOE helped to support travel of students and scientists to the conferences in Brazil. Attendee names, funding, and session titles are listed.
  • This report describes the process and results from an effort to develop metrics for program accomplishments for the FY 1997 budget submission of the U.S. Department of Energy Environmental Management International Technology Integration Program (EM-ITI). The four-step process included interviews with key EM-ITI staff, the development of a strawman program logic chart, and all day facilitated workshop with EM-ITI staff during which preliminary performance plans and measures were developed and refined, and a series of follow-on discussions and activities including a cross-organizational project data base. The effort helped EM-ITI to crystallize and develop a unified vision of their future whichmore » they can effectively communicate to their own management and their internal and external customers. The effort sets the stage for responding to the Government Performance and Results Act. The metrics developed may be applicable to other international technology integration programs. Metrics were chosen in areas of eight general performance goals for 1997-1998: (1) number of forums provided for the exchange of information, (2) formal agreements signed, (3) new partners identified, (4) customers reached and satisfied, (5, 6) dollars leveraged by EM technology focus area and from foreign research, (7) number of foreign technologies identified for potential use in remediation of DOE sites, and (8) projects advanced through the pipeline.« less
