Call for developer of CECAM-MARVEL-MAX training portal
We are looking for a collaborator that, building on existing platforms, will help us to set up a state-of-the-art web portal for training and dissemination material in the area of simulation and modelling of materials and beyond. Apply before April 30 for best consideration.
Berni Alder (1925-2020)
Following the sad announcement of Berni’s peaceful passing on September 7, we invite you to share a small homage of his exceptional contributions to simulations and modelling.
CECAM is monitoring the situation and working to mitigate disruption of activities while ensuring strict compliance with restrictions and precautions. The health and safety of our guests and staff is our key concern. Our priority is to minimise - as much as possible - risks and to fulfil our responsibilities towards the community and our hosting institutions.
Details on actions at HQ and the Nodes can be found scrolling news items on this page.
Information related to CoVid-19: Events at HQ
The number of cases in Switzerland is unfortunately stagnating at a relatively high level and the public-health situation remains a major concern. Therefore, amongst other measures, EPFL has decided that no event is permitted on its campus, until 4 June 2021.
Organisers of events at HQ have been contacted individually and informed of CECAM’s policy for 2021 Flagship events. This policy has been set in place to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on the 2021 and future Flagship programs.
All standard channels of communication with organisers and participants are available. Participants should refer firstly to organisers for information on specific events.

Information related to CoVid-19: Events at the Nodes
Organisers should coordinate with the hosting Node Director for any decision regarding the event, including possible postponement, and for location specific information.
Participants should refer to organizers for information on specific events.
Thank you for your collaboration and understanding in this crisis.
Call for submissions
CECAM-Lorentz call closed
Call for expression of interest open from June 18 2020 to November 1 2020.
Short-listed expressions of interest will be invited to present a full application by December 15 2020. Results of the call will be communicated at the end of January 2021.
Scientific exchange is precious in these uncertain times. CECAM will continue to serve the community, combining a rigorous selection procedure with adaptable scheduling and managing of the events. Traditional and innovative proposal adapted to the current unfolding scenario are welcome. Let us shape together an exciting and productive 2021 flagship program!
NEXT: The main purpose of this Psi-k/CECAM research conference is to to highlight the very recent theoretical and computational developments related to the interplay of spin-orbit interaction with electronic structure.
CECAM (Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire) is an organization devoted to the promotion of fundamental research on advanced computational methods and to their application to important problems in frontier areas of science and technology. As the name suggests, the traditional focus of CECAM has been atomistic and molecular simulations, applied to the physics and chemistry of condensed matter. Over the last twenty years, powerful advances in computer hardware and software have supported the extension of these methods to a wide range of problems in materials science, biology and medicinal chemistry.
The power of simulation and modeling is intimately related to the available computational resources, to the community’s awareness of these resources, and to its proficiency in their optimal exploitation. In these weekly webinars we explore High Performance Computing as an enabler of new science…with a focus on the science!
