As in previous years, we encourage all members of the Psi-k community to attend the annual “Spring Meeting” of the German Physical Society, which is this year held together with the European Physical Society.

2018 Joint meeting of the DPG and EPS Condensed Matter Divisions, Berlin, 11-16 March, 2017

With more than 7,000 expected participants this meeting is by far the largest European physics conference, covering all aspects of condensed-matter and materials science, including surface science, magnetism, soft and biological matter, and more. The conference language is English.

In the versatile program, a special symposium will feature Psi-k interests and activities:

Frontiers of Electronic Structure Theory: Correlated Electron Materials organized by Silke Biermann, Paul R. Kent, and Matthias Scheffler

The symposium comprises invited and contributed talks as well as posters. More information, e.g. on how to submit an abstract (deadline Dec. 1), and the list of invited speakers etc. can be found here: http://th.fhi-berlin.mpg.de/meetings/DPGSym2018/

  • The finalists for the Psi-k Volker Heine Award “for research excellence in all fields involving electronic structure calculations” will also compete in a session as a part of this symposium. Information on how young scientists can apply (deadline Dec. 1) can be found here: http://psi-k.net/psi-k-volker-heine-young-investigator-award-2018/

Other symposiums of interest are e.g.:

  • Big-Data-Driven Materials Science: Managing and Exploiting the Raw Material of the 21st Century organized by Claudia Draxl and Peter Fratzl
    The symposium is comprised of invited and contributed talks as well as posters. More information, e.g. on how to submit an abstract (deadline Dec. 1), invited speakers etc. can be found here: https://th.fhi-berlin.mpg.de/meetings/MERW2018/

  • Information Driven Materials Research organized by Wolfgang Wenzel and Stefan Blügel
    This symposium will feature invited talks. Confirmed speakers are Alessandro Curioni (IBM), Nicola Marzari (EPFL), Luca M. Ghiringhelli (FHI Berlin), and Alfred Ludwig (RU Bochum)

Following tradition, Psi-k will organize a special evening

“Psi-k Scientific Get-Together”

on Tuesday March 13, 19:00 in the Mensa of the TU, hosted by the Psi-k Chairman and past Chairman. Beer and food will be served, sponsored by Psi-k.org. We expect about 400 Psi-k members and friends gathering together.

Due to the large size of the meeting, early registration, and accommodation reservation is strongly encouraged. The deadline for abstract submission is December 1, 2017.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin. Let us make DPG Spring Meeting THE European condensed-matter conference!

Risto Nieminen

Psi-k Chairman
