Psi-k 2020 (EPFL, Sept. 14-17): Registrations are open!
This is the largest event worldwide in first-principles simulations; it is held every 5 years (the last two editions, in Berlin in 2010 and in San Sebastian in 2015, had more than 1’000 participants each), and with 7 plenary talks, 140 invited talks, and 170 contributed talks it promises to be the most exciting, defining event in the field.
Molecular and material simulation at the turn of the decade: Celebrating 50 years of CECAM
This has been a very successful event, shaped by CECAM’s mission: enabling scientists to meet in an atmosphere that combines excellence and open discussions and paves the way for new scientific perspectives and collaborations.
The conference has brought together old and new friends to discuss state of the art methods and current challenges, celebrate 50 remarkable years of activities, and reflect on the future of CECAM and of our scientific field.
