National Academy of Sciences of Belarus


Public lecture “From Dream to Reality or How Materials of the Future are Created” to be held at NAS of Belarus

The NAS of Belarus continues the tradition to organize lectures on topical scientific problems by leading scientists of the world's scientific centers. On 10 November 2017, at 2:00 p.m., a public lecture “From Dream to Reality or How Materials of the Future are Created” will be held at the NAS of Belarus (Minsk, praspiekt Niezaliežnasci 66). Artyom Oganov, a scientist who is well-known in the world, a talented science popularizer, will talk about the possibility of theoretical prediction of the crystal structure of matter and its chemical composition, and also of creation of new materials possessing specified properties with the help of the USPEX revolutionary algorithm.

Artyom Oganov is Professor and Head of the Computer Design of Materials Laboratory at the Stony Brook University, New York; Head of the same laboratories at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and in China; Professor of the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology; and the author of the USPEX (Universal Structure Predictor: Evolutionary Xrystallography) method of computer design of new materials and the crystalline structures prediction.

Admission is free.

The event is organized by the Nauka i Innovatsii (Science and Innovations) journal.
