Total Energy and Force Methods 2018 Workshop

9th January 2018 – 11th January 2018

Last Booking Date for this Event: 7th December 2017

The workshop focuses on the most recent developments in the field of electronic structure methods from the first-principles perspective, their diverse applications and mathematical foundations. It is organized within the “mini” series associated to the “Total Energies and Forces” conference, held at ICTP in Trieste every two years. While the Trieste conferences take place on odd-numbered years since 1987, the alternates are held on even-numbered years, each time in a different location. The previous most recent workshops of this series took place in Madrid (2000), Tenerife (2002), Paris (2004), Cambridge (2006), Bonn (2008), Shanghai (2010), Barcelona (2012), Lausanne (2014) and Luxembourg (2016).

The numerous approaches that are developed and used in the electronic-structure community provide the foundation for computing many physical and chemical properties of solids, liquids, and low-dimensional systems. However, there are numerous challenging applications for which the level of approximation is insufficient or where computational costs are prohibitive for accurate quantitative prediction of material properties. Therefore, continued efforts are devoted to an improvement of existing methods and the development of new methods.
