Data Center Building O

International Winter School on Electronic Structure Calculations

Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²)  and the Dynamics of Condensed Matter Group of Paderborn University are organizing a winter school on electronic structure calculations. In this school, you will learn how to perform efficient electronic structure calculations as well as ab-initio molecular dynamics calculations for molecules and solids.

The school contains lectures from experts in the corresponding methods and codes as well as hands-on tutorials.

The three codes

Date and Location

  • Date: 10-14 Febrary 2020
  • Place: Paderborn University, L 3.204, map

Registration

  • Please use our web form to register as a participant.
  • In case of questions or problems please contact robert.schade(at)uni-paderborn(dot)de.
  • Participation in the school is free of charge for members of universities and governmental research institutions. In other cases please contact robert.schade(at)uni-paderborn(dot)de.
  • Please note, that we have no funding available to support participants with their travel and accommodation expenses.
  • Please note, that in order to participate in the hands-on tutorials, you need to bring a laptop (Windows, Linux, MacOS,...) with a working wifi connection and a webbrowser (Chrome, Firefox,...). In case you have no access to the Eduroam-network, we also have a dedicated wifi network for the winter school. Nothing has to be installed on your laptop because the calculations will be performed on our cluster systems.
