Save the date: from May 23 to 27, 2017 in Barcelona Supercomputing Centre a seminal four-day hands-on tutorial on the use of the SIESTA code will take place, organized within the European Centre of Excellence MaX. The SIESTA school will be addressed to students and researchers from different disciplines who already use, or plan to use, SIESTA in their work and who would like to understand its essential foundations and to learn how to apply the code effectively.
The course will briefly explain the theory behind electronic structure calculations and DFT, and show standard tasks implemented in many DFT codes, but also cover topics which are more specific to SIESTA. The level of this school is basic-intermediate, and just a few advanced topics will be covered.
The tutorial will consist of “theory” lectures followed by “how-to” and practical “hands-on” sessions.
