The August 2017 issue of the MaX (Materials Design at the Exascale) newsletter is now ready and accessible. In this number we mainly focus on:


-MaX prize for frontier HPC applications in materials research. MaX establishes a prize to recognize frontier research that is enabled by Quantum ESPRESSO, SIESTA, Fleur, Yambo and AiiDA. 

- A new feature for Siesta: including spin-orbit interaction. A new implementation of SIESTA is presented.

-New Fleur benchmark on the RWTH compute CLAIX cluster. Fleur shows now high scalability on HPC architectures.

-Help Desk and Advanced Support services. The services provide a direct contact between users and MaX-code developers.
