The workshop will be held at the Pennsylvania State University (University Park, PA USA) from May 21 to May 25, 2018.
Quantum-Espresso is an open-source software widely used for predicting the properties of materials from first principles. In this workshop, developers of the package, led by Dr. Stefano Baroni, will present the theory behind the codes and train the participants on how to use them for different applications, including the calculation of structural, vibrational, optical, and transport properties and the use of high-throughput software capabilities for computational materials screening.
Participants will have the opportunity to present a poster during the workshop.
