Description:

The first aim of this school is to introduce the theoretical framework of computational condensed matter physics through mini-courses taught by prominent researchers in their corresponding fields.  The second aim is to introduce students to the available computational tools through hands-on tutorials provided by the developers of the computational codes. The third and final aim is to explain the current limitations of the tools available and to introduce through research seminars a number of state-of-the-art approaches to overcoming these limitations.

The school is intended for graduate students and young researchers in the fields of theoretical condensed matter physics and computational chemistry. A basic knowledge of condensed matter and/or atomic  and molecular physics  is preferred. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for local and travel support of participants.

 

Application deadline: August 18
