Location: Lausanne, Switzerland


The Psi-k conference is postponed to next year (Aug. 2021)!

Given the current situation, and after having frozen registrations since mid-March, we have now taken the formal decision to postpone the conference to 2022, preserving the same format, plenary and invited speakers, and symposia.

The registration platform will be reopened later for registration — the participants who had already registered for this year will be contacted separately.


After 5 years Psi-k organizes its next general conference which will be held at EPFL in Lausanne, on Sep 14-17 2020.

Psi-k 2020 will be the 6th general conference for the worldwide Psi-k community, following very successful events held in San Sebastián (2015), Berlin (2010), and Schwäbisch Gmünd (2005, 2000, 1996). 

This major conference – the largest worldwide in electronic-structure – brings together the community that is active in the field, as described by the Psi-k mission statement:

“… to develop fundamental theory, algorithms, and computer codes in order to understand, predict, and design materials properties and functions. Theoretical condensed matter physics, quantum chemistry, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics form its scientific core. Applications encompass inorganic, organic and bio-materials, and cover a whole range of diverse scientific, engineering, and industrial endeavours.”

The conference program will be structured around 3.5 days (from the afternoon of September 14, 2020 to the end of September 17, 2020), that will include 7 plenary talks, 42 symposia in 6 parallel sessions (~135 invited talks and ~170 contributed talks), and a MAD evening.
