We would like to announce the 5th Annual BerkeleyGW Workshop and Tutorial, with hands-on user sessions, on the GW and GW-BSE approaches using the BerkeleyGW package.  It will be held January 10-12, 2018, in Oakland, California, USA.  The target participants for the Workshop are graduate students, postdocs, and researchers who are interested in learning about or sharpening their skills on ab initio calculations of many-electron effects in excited-state properties of condensed matter.

The BerkeleyGW Package (http://www.berkeleygw.org) is a set of computer codes that calculates the quasiparticle properties and the optical responses of a large variety of materials from bulk crystals to molecules and nanostructures such as slabs, sheets, tubes, wires, and dots. The package takes as input the mean-field results such as the Kohn-Sham DFT eigenvalues and eigenvectors computed with commonly available electronic structure codes including PARATEC, PARSEC, Quantum ESPRESSO, SIESTA, Octopus, TBPW (aka EPM), etc.

The Workshop will cover basic GW/BSE theory, features of the BerkeleyGW package (version 1.2), and detailed examples of using the BerkeleyGW package in conjunction with the above mentioned DFT packages.

For returning attendees, we are soliciting contributed presentations on research done with BerkeleyGW with the potential for travel support.

Please find more information along with registration at https://sites.google.com/site/berkeleygw2018 and https://goo.gl/forms/OJ0KiSWfn2fqOxvS2 where the tentative program and other information such as hotel accommodations are given.
