Subject: 17.07.31 Summer school DFT and beyond in Berlin: Accuracy, Efficiency and Reproducibility
Dear colleague,

We are pleased to announce a two-weeks hands-on workshop and summer school

"Density-Functional Theory and Beyond: 
Accuracy, Efficiency and Reproducibility in Computational Materials Science" 

that will be held from July 31 to August 11, 2017, at Humboldt University Berlin.
Web page:

This event introduces the basics and current developments in electronic-structure 
theory for researchers entering the field. Morning lectures will be given by 
renowned experts, complemented in the afternoons by practical exercises with 
computers to deepen selected topics. We cover:

* Density-functional theory (DFT) and quantum-chemical approaches
* The most important numerical implementations
* Advanced exchange-correlation 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
* Machine learning applied to parametrization and dimensionality reduction

 ... and a wide range of other topics.

Application and poster-abstract submission are now open until April 15, 2017. 
For space reasons, the number of participants will be limited to 60. 
Acceptance decisions will be made soon after the deadline.

With kind regards,
The Organizers
(C. Baldauf, I.Y. Zhang, P. Pavone, V. Blum, M. Scheffler)
