Ab-initio approaches to electron-phonon coupling and superconductivity

The aim of this workshop is to give an overview of recent ab-initio calculations of electron-phonon coupling in superconducting and
nonsuperconducting materials, in bulk as well as at the surface. The workshop will cover, for example, linear response calculations of the
e-ph coupling resolved both in energy and momentum, the newly developed superconducting density functional theory, and numerical methods of the Eliashberg theory. Important topics like anharmonicity, nonadiabacity, and unconventional order parameters will also be discussed, as well as spectroscopic effects of the e-ph coupling, e.g., in photoemission.

Although the workshop is mainly theoretical, we anticipate having some experimentalists as well, and hope that this will lead to productive
cross-fertilization between the theory and the experiment.

We plan to have about 30 oral invited talks and unlimited number of contributed posters. The workshop will take place in the picturesque
town of San Sebastian, one of the main cities of the legendary Basque Country.

Conference talks and poster sessions will be held at the Donostia International Physics Center facilities.

We do not foresee a necessity to levy any conference fee, and particularly encourage young researchers to join the workshop. The
deadline for applications is March 15, 2007.
