Quantum-Espresso Workshop 2018

May 21, 2018 - May 25, 2018

The Materials Computation Center of the Materials Research Institute at Pennsylvania State University announces the 2018 Quantum-Espresso Workshop.

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.
