CANCELED - Advanced school on Quantum Transport using SIESTA


The current crisis of Covid19 is forcing us to cancel the school.  


The school 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 condensed matter electronic transport 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, strongly 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 school, the number of participants is limited.

The registration is possible through the CECAM webpage: by providing an abstract for the poster session 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.

The registration will close on January 15.

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