40 years of DFT based simulations of solids with the WIEN2k code
The WIEN2k program package is one of the
most popular DFT codes in Computational Materials Science and allows to
calculate the electronic structure of solids with high precision. The WIEN2k
workshop includes elementary and advanced tutorials on DFT, electronic
structure calculations, magnetic, optical and spectroscopic properties. We
start with detailed introductions and then have hands-on exercises with the
WIEN2k program. In addition, there will also be a poster session for
presentations by the participants.
The WIEN2k community is steadily increasing and now we have about 3250
registered users. The WIEN2K code development started 1980 with the PhD theses
of P. Blaha. The code is continously
updated to serve researchers in the field of Materials Science, thanks to the
efforts of various contributors. Following a long tradition and with great
vitality, the WIEN2k workshop provides an arena for both, new and experienced
WIEN2k users who come together and discuss elemental questions as well as the
latest developments in the world of WIEN2k.
In addition there will be a scientific symposium covering 40 years of DFT
simulations of solids.
