24 May “First-principles simulations of materials with SIESTA” Flagship School – June 28 / July 2, 2021
The online Flagship School “First-principles simulations of materials with SIESTA” will take place from June 28 to July 2, 2021.
The school is aimed at students and researchers from different disciplines who already use, or plan to use, first-principles techniques to simulate properties of matter at the atomic scale. In particular, the school will focus on the SIESTA method. Participants will learn its essential theoretical foundations, and how to use the SIESTA code effectively. Pre- and post-processing tools will also be presented.
The format of the school (completely online) allows for a flexible offering of modules of different levels, from basic to advanced, so that participants can adapt their syllabus. In addition, the material prepared for the school will be integrated into the corpus of SIESTA documentation, which will remain available for continuous learning.
The deadline for applications is the 4th June 2021. The school is organized by our Emanuele Bosoni (ICMAB-CSIC, Spain), Antonio Cammarata (Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic), José Mª Escartín (ICN2, Spain), our intersecters Alberto García (ICMAB-CSIC, Spain), Pablo Ordejón (ICN2, Spain), and Miguel Pruneda (ICN2, Spain), and by Zeila Zanolli (Utrecht University, Netherlands). This school is supported by CECAM and the MaX Centre of Excellence.
