We are pleased to announce the school:

First-principles simulations of materials with SIESTA

that will take place from May 4 to May 8, 2020, at Prague, Faculty of Electrical Engineering (Fakulta Elektrotechnická) in Technická 2.

The event is part of the MAX Training Program

The school is aimed at students and researchers from different disciplines in materials science who already use, or plan to use, first-principles techniques to simulate electronic properties of materials. In particular, the school will focus on the use of the SIESTA method

The students will learn its essential theoretical foundations, and to how to use the SIESTA code effectively (parallelization and new, more efficient, solvers). Pre- and post-processing tools and advanced features will also be presented.

The detailed program will be soon available on the webpage

Please, register exclusively through the CECAM webpage:


Participants are required to have a background in DFT methods.

There is no registration fee.

Deadline: March 30, 2020


The organizers: Zeila Zanolli (ICN2) – Pablo Ordejon (ICN2) – Miguel Pruneda (ICN2) -Alberto García (ICMAB) -  Antonio Cammarata (CTU)
