CCL:G: Call for abstracts: ES2016 28th Annual Electronic Structure Workshop -- June 26-29, 2016

ES2016 28th Annual Electronic Structure Workshop -- June
       26-29, 2016

Dear colleagues,

Poster abstract submission and registration are now open for the 28th Annual Workshop on Recent Developments in Electronic Structure Theory, ES2016, to be held on the campus of the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, June 26 - 29, 2016.  For details regarding the technical program, registration, abstract submission, and on-campus housing, see the conference website

Presentations and posters are intended to present breakthroughs in algorithms and computational methods as well as applications to systems of current interest.  An exciting program is planned for this year's Workshop, featuring speakers from around the world, and highlighting the latest research in these areas:

Structural optimization • Quantum Monte Carlo • Model Hamiltonians • Time-dependent DFT • Topological insulators and Weyl semimetals • LDA-DMFT • Excitonic materials • Quantum entanglement • Novel DFT/mixed many-body approaches for electron correlation and optical excitations • DFT and warm dense matter • Magnetic structure and rare earth materials •  Defects in semiconductors • Strongly-correlated systems • Novel algorithms and frameworks for materials simulation • Materials Genome • Tensor networks • O(N) methods

Depending on funding sources, partial support may be available for students, postdocs, and early career faculty; contact for information and an application.

We look forward to welcoming you in Albuquerque!

Best regards,
