We are pleased to announce the school:

“Advanced school on Quantum Transport using SIESTA”

that will take place from March 23 to March 27, 2020 at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) in San Sebastian.


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.

Moreover, the participants are encouraged to submit, up to one month before the school via a GitHub repository, a specific issue or system of their interest.

Three topics will be selected and addressed in detail during the last day of the school.


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

The registration is possible through the CECAM webpage:

by providing an abstract (poster) and a short reference letter.

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

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)
