International Workshop on Computational Physics and Materials Science

This workshop will highlight recent advances in the calculation of electronic structure of real materials and catalyze the exchange of ideas between the fields, ranging from method development to applications.

In the spirit of the previous workshops in the series, it will bring together practitioners from different parts of the electronic structure community and strive to enable the exchange of ideas between the fields. The focus of the workshop will be on correlated systems, with special emphasis non the modelling of real materials and on quantum Monte Carlo techniques, as well as on the understanding of novel superconductors.

Background of the Workshop
This workshop is part of the series of International Workshops on Computational Physics and Materials Science: Total Energy and Force Methods, which started in Oxford (1983) and Braunschweig (1984), and is continued biennially in Trieste (1987, …, 2005, 2007). In-between the Trieste workshops, Mini-workshops are organized (2004: Paris, 2006: Cambridge) to review the state-of-the-art in Computational Electronic Structure Theory. The present workshop continues that tradition.
Workshop venue and format
The 2 1/2 day workshop will give ample time for discussions of the invited presentations and contributed posters. To allow for intense and informal discussions, the number of participants will be limited to 50. The venue is the Gustav-Stresemann-Institute in Bonn, which is conveniently reached from Cologne/Bonn airport.
