CCL: Workshop "Crystal Structure Prediction with the USPEX code"

 Sent to CCL by: "Artem R Oganov" []
 Dear friends,
 It is a pleasure to announce the 8th hands-on workshop on Crystal Structure
 Prediction and Materials Discovery with the USPEX code, which will take place in
 Shiv Nadar University (near New Delhi, India) on January 20-24, 2015. Morning
 sessions will consist of lectures by developers and advanced users of USPEX and
 some key figures in this field, whereas afternoons will be dedicated to hands-on
 exercises. Participants will have an opportunity to solve problems related to
 their research and to present their work.
 The workshop will include an excursion to Agra and Taj Mahal.
 The workshop is supported by the International Union of Crystallography, Shiv
 Nadar University, Stony Brook University. Thanks to generous support,
 registration fees (inclusive of accommodation, meals and excursion) are low. For
 program and registration details, please see
 The number of seats is limited, so register early!

 P.S. For those who dont know, USPEX is a powerful code, enabling prediction of
 3D (crystals), 2D (surfaces, interfaces, 2D-crystals), 1D (polymers) and 0D
 (clusters) structures by global optimization. It has unique efficiency,
 especially for large and complex systems. USPEX is used by nearly 2000
 researchers and several major companies, and is free for academic researchers.
