DFTEM 2006 - bringing together two communities
International Conference on Density Functional Theory (DFT) and
Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

April 21 - 23, 2006, Vienna, Austria

This three-day conference will focus on Density Functional Theory (DFT)
 and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) with the intention of 
bringing together these two communites. The conference is dedicated 
to Karlheinz Schwarz (DFT) and Bernard Jouffrey (TEM) on the occasion 
of their respective birthdays, which we will celebrate at the conference 
dinner. The conference will follow two days of separate workshops for 
the two fields.

The workshops and the conference will be held at the Vienna University 
of Technology, conveniently located in the city center.

THE WORKSHOPS || April 19 + 20, 2006

This WIEN workshop deals with density functional (DFT) calculations of 
solids using the (full-potential) Augmented Plane Wave plus Local 
Orbitals (APW+lo) method as embodied in the WIEN2k code 
( and related topics.

The CHIRALTEM collaboration ( has 
recently demonstrated that circular dichroism can be measured with 
EELS in a TEM, contrary to common belief. This new technique opens 
the way to the study of site and element specific magnetic moments 
in the TEM, thus extending to the nanoscale the well established XMCD 
or PEEM applied on a synchrotron.

During the workshop the know-how accumulated in the last two years by 
the international collaboration will be disseminated to the interested 
community.  A limited number of grants (max.  300.- ) is available 
for young researchers (< 35 years). Applications by sending an email 
to dftem(-) including a cover letter and a CV are invited.
