Dear Colleagues,

This is to announce the CECAM / Psi-k funded "8th International School and Workshop on Time-Dependent Density-Functional Theory: Prospects and Applications" which will be held on August 20th - August 31st, 2018, at the beautiful Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual (Benasque, Spain; http://benasque.org/)

*Deadline extended to the 10th of June*

Please see http://www.benasque.org/2018tddft/ for details, and read more below!


This School & Workshop is the eighth of a series that started in 2004, with approximate periodicity of two years. The purpose has in all occasions been to (1) make a very intense introduction to both the theory, the practice, and the numerical implementation of time-dependent density-functional theory (TDDFT), mainly (but not exclusively) oriented to young scientists willing to initiate or strengthen their knowledge and skills on TDDFT, followed by (2) a workshop on the subject in which all the main aspects are to be covered by the leading experts. All the students of the school are expected to participate in the workshop, in order to learn about the state-of-the-art of the subject, after being exposed to the fundamentals. Since TDDFT is a rapidly evolving field of Science, the precise content of both school and workshop have changed over the years –although the format of the events has been largely unaltered.

The School will start on August 20th (Monday) and finish on August 27th (Monday). The workshop will take place from the 28th to the 31st.


The call for participation will be mainly directed to students and scientists specialized on computational physics, quantum chemistry and biophysics. We call for students willing to participate at the School (and attend the workshop), and for scientists willing to present a contributed talk or poster at the Workshop. We will limit the number of students to the school to 40 and participants to the workshop to less than 90, in order to ensure a maximum interaction between all the scientists participating. Attendance of graduate students and post-docs will be strongly encouraged through the inclusion of short contributed talks and a poster session. Furthermore, we will award to PhD students who present an outstanding poster short oral presentations.


All persons who wish to participate should fill out the application form at:


In the comments section, please indicate if you wish to participate in the Summer Summer School or in the Workshop (or in both).

School only:

As we have a very limited number of places for the school, students will be selected from among an open pool of applicants who have demonstrated a strong interest in computational sciences, applied to chemistry, physics, materials science and biology. Therefore, in order that we can make a reasonable selection, we ask that *all* candidates include in the comments section the following information:

*) Date of birth, gender

*) Motivation/Why they want to come (just a couple of lines is enough)

*) What is their current and previous positions (if PhD or Post-doc state your supervisor).
