Computational Physics and Materials Science: Total Energy and Force Methods 2018

Selwyn College, Cambridge, United Kingdom, Tuesday 09 – Thursday 11 January 2018

This event is to be the next in the “mini” series associated with the “Total Energy and Forces” workshops, held at ICTP in Trieste every two years. Since 1987 the Trieste workshops have taken place in odd-numbered years, alternating with the mini workshops, held each even-numbered year in a different location. The most recent workshops of the mini series took place in Madrid (2000), Tenerife (2002), Paris (2004), Cambridge (2006), Bonn (2008), Shanghai (2010), Barcelona (2012), Lausanne (2014) and Luxembourg (2016). The workshop focuses on the most recent developments in the field of electronic structure methods from the first-principles perspective, and their diverse applications.

Places are still available for the Total Energy and Force Methods Workshop, but please note that registration closes on Saturday 25th November. The confirmed speakers are:
Prof Bogdan Bernevig, Princeton University, USA
Dr George Booth, King’s College London, UK
Prof Kieron Burke, UC Irvine, USA
Prof Eric Cancès, Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, France
