Adding a new dimension to DFT calculations of solids ...

The 27. WIEN2k workshop

will be held at

ICTP Trieste / Italy

8. April - 19. April 2024

It will be a 2 week experience giving you a lot of chances to get acquainted with WIEN2k, both in theory and in practice by a series of lectures and hand-on sessions. The workshop is supported by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and thus there is no conference fee. In addition, a limited number of grants for participants from developing countries is available. Please note that the deadline for grant application and Visa support is 18. November 2023, while the general deadline is 5. February 2024.

In the last years it became a tradition to have a "WIEN-workshop" every year, where both, new and experienced users can learn more about the code, get intensive hands-on training, interchange ideas and share experiences. This series started in 1993 in Vienna and subsequent workshops were held not only in Vienna, but also in Trieste (Italy), Isfahan (Iran), Kyoto and Tokyo (Japan), UCLA (California,US), IHCP (Singapore), Nantes (France), Hamilton (Canada), Boston (USA) and several times at PennState Univ. (US). If you wonder how such a workshop works checkout the following video:

This workshop is now online with lecture notes, videos and hands-on exercises.
