Approaching deadline for the registration to the

"Advanced school on Quantum Transport using SIESTA",
23-27 March 2020, DIPC - San Sebastian.

Submit your request by 15 January 2020 at the CECAM  webpage: https://www.cecam.org/school1914/

Do not esitate to suggest also a topic of your interest that could be treated and discussed during one of the hands on session to solve specific issues and to determine the best tools to study the properties of your interest.

Due to the hands-on nature of the school, the number of participants is limited.

Participants are required to have a pre-existing background in DFT methods, including experience in running first principles transport simulations.


The event is part of the MAX Training Program


The “Advanced school on Quantum Transport using SIESTA” will focus on the field of theoretical electronic transport in condensed matter, exploiting the non-equilibrium Green’s function approach.

The program will offer technical sessions regarding the recent improvements in transport theory, the usage of advanced features of SIESTA/TBTrans tools and of the python framework SISL.

The school will also cover a list of hot topics presented by expert lecturers, showing the application of electron transport calculation to electrochemistry, topological materials, correlated systems etc.

The detailed program is available in the webpage.


There is no registration fee.

Deadline: January 15, 2020.

The organizers: Zeila Zanolli (ICN2) – Simona Achilli (ICN2) – Pablo Ordejon (ICN2) – Nick R. Papior (DTU) - Mads Brandbyge (DTU) - Thomas Frederiksen (DIPC)
