Summer School "Hands-on DFT and Beyond" 2018

The 2018 installment of the Summer School Hands-On DFT and Beyond: Frontiers of Advanced Electronic Structure and Molecular Dynamics Methods will be held at Peking University, China, from July 30 to August 10.


Topics covered during the event will be the basics as well as recent developments of electronic-structure theory in materials science, solid-state physics, and computational chemistry. The focus will be in particular on density-functional theory (DFT), but also topics beyond DFT will be covered: ab initio thermodynamics, molecular dynamics, and statistical mechanics, excited-state properties, nuclear quantum effects, multi-scale modeling as well as machine learning approaches to potential parametrization, Big-Data dimensionality reduction, and property prediction.

Registration will open early in January 2018.
