Subject: 15.07.13 DFT and beyond: First-principles simulations of molecules and materials
We are pleased to announce a 10-days Hands-on Tutorial Workshop on

              Density-functional theory and beyond: 
      First-principles simulations of molecules and materials
        July 14 to 23, 2015, held at Harnack House Berlin

This ten-day Hands-On Tutorial Workshop introduces the basic and
current developments in electronic structure theory for an intended
audience of researchers entering the field. Morning lectures on the
most important topics will be given by a field of international
experts, complemented by afternoon hands-on sessions - practical
exercises with computers - to deepen selected topics. For example, we

   * Density-functional theory (DFT) and quantum chemical approaches
   * The most important numerical implementations
   * Advanced functionals (capabilities and limits!)
   * Electronic structure theory "beyond traditional Kohn-Sham DFT"
     (including GW, TDDFT, many-body formalisms)
   * Ab initio molecular dynamics and nuclear quantum effects
   * Multiscale approaches and statistical learning based on first principles
   ... and a wide range of other topics.

The application and poster-abstract submission interfaces for the
workshop are now open until March 31. For space reasons, the number 
of participants will be limited to approximately 70. Acceptance 
decisions will be made within 2 weeks after the deadline (April 15, 2015).

With kind regards,

The Organizers
