Psi-k Working Groups review (No replies)

11 months ago
pdh 11 months ago

The Psi-k Network relies on its working groups and their spokespersons to represent the whole community working on first-principles computational materials science and to maintain a lively programme of conferences, workshops, tutorials and training schools.


A current list of working groups and spokespersons can be found at and it has been some years since this structure was reviewed or revised.


At its last meeting, the Psi-k Trustees accepted the recommendation of the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) to establish a taskforce to review the purpose and structure of the working groups and to define the roles and responsibilities of their leaders. The taskforce will report its recommendations to the meeting of the Psi-k SAC in November.


The taskforce welcomes suggestions from the whole Psi-k community for new working groups in areas that are emerging or not covered by the current structure. Please send these to [email protected] by the end of May.
