CECAM DFT School, June 12-16, 2017, Lausanne

par Secretaire - 22 janvier 2017

Where : CECAM Headquarters, Lausanne, Switzerland

When : June 12-16, 2017

https://www.cecam.org/workshop-1326.html Application deadline : February 28, 2017

This is a singular opportunity for students and postdocs. The school will be very similar to the previous one at IPAM last year (http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/programs/s...) with a similar line-up of excellent lecturers. We also provide limited support for student accommodation.

Scientific overview : Last year, at least 30,000 scientific papers reported the results of DFT calculations. Many workshops and schools teach how to run a specific code. The purpose of this school is to teach the theory behind DFT. Lectures will be pedagogical and range from fundamentals to the latest approximations. The school is primarily targeted at junior researchers (Ph.D. students and postdocs) who are currently running DFT calculations and/or developing DFT or are interested in learning more about DFT. Internationally renowned experts in DFT will provide a thorough training in the fundamental theory through lectures and pedagogical research talks that connect themes of the lectures to the lecturers’ own cutting-edge research.

Confirmed speakers : Mel Levy (Tulane University) John Perdew (Temple University) Hardy Gross (Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics) Weitao Yang (Duke University) Kieron Burke (University of California, Irvine) Leeor Kronik (Weizmann Institute) Neepa Maitra (Hunter College, CUNY) Adrienn Ruzsinszky (Temple University) Adam Wasserman (Purdue University)

Application : Fill out the application form on the school web site. Submit one letter of recommendation from your academic advisor (via email to acangi@mpi-halle.mpg.de). Participants are strongly encouraged to present a poster. Applications arriving by February 28, 2017 will receive full consideration.

Organizing Committee : Attila Cangi (Sandia National Laboratories) Kieron Burke (University of California, Irvine) Hardy Gross (Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics)

Best,
