CPMD meetings have a tradition stretching back two decades in bringing together a diverse mix of computational scientists working on different aspects of molecular dynamics simulations, combining
aspects of electronic structure theory and statistical sampling methods, as well as state-of-the-art applications ranging from materials science to biophysics.
This edition of the meeting – which marked the 20th anniversary of the first CPMD meeting at Ringberg Castle (Munich) – focused on identifying the most pressing challenges in the field, and on discussing the most promising directions to face such challenges. Given the growing relevance of machine-learning methods in the field of atomic-scale modelling, the topic was given a particular
focus, informed the choice of the speakers and the organization of the program.
