June 12-16, 2017
Location: CECAM-HQ-EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland
Application deadline: February 28th, 2017


Last year, at least 30,000 scientific papers reported the results of DFT
calculations. Many workshops and schools teach how to run a specific code.
The purpose of this school is to teach the theory behind DFT. Lectures will be
pedagogical and range from fundamentals to the latest approximations.

The school is primarily targeted at junior researchers (Ph.D. students and
postdocs) who are currently running DFT calculations and/or developing DFT or
are interested in learning more about DFT.

Internationally renowned experts in DFT (Mel Levy, John Perdew, Hardy Gross,
Weitao Yang, Kieron Burke, Leeor Kronik, Neepa Maitra, Adrienn Ruzsinszky, and
Adam Wasserman) will provide a thorough training in the fundamental theory
through lectures and pedagogical research talks that connect themes of the
lectures to the lecturers’ own cutting-edge research.

The school will be similar to the very successful school at IPAM last year

Participants are strongly encouraged to present a poster.
