From 29 to 31 Aug 2022 @antoine-levitt, Eric Cancès (from École des Ponts in Paris) and myself, we will organize an interdisciplinary summer school centred around electronic-structure simulations and methodological developments in density-functional theory (DFT) at Sorbonne University in Paris, France.
Our programme is intended for both researchers with a background in mathematics or computer science willing to be introduced to the numerical aspects of electronic-structure calculations, as well as physicists or chemists interested in modern software development methodologies and the mathematical background of DFT. Over the three days we will have a mixture of theory lectures introducing the theoretical and numerical background and hands-on coding sessions using Julia and our package DFTK.
See the school’s website https://school2022.dftk.org/ for more details and https://school2022.dftk.org/registration to register. The school is free of charge and there is limited funding to contribute towards local expenses of junior researchers.
