Post School on Electron-Phonon Physics from First Principles.
Dear All,

We are pleased to announce the first ICTP International School devoted to Electron-Phonon Physics from First Principles.

The school will be held at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste from Monday 19 March to Friday 23 March 2018, and is intended for senior PhD students and experienced researchers with prior experience in ab initio calculations.

We will have theoretical lectures and hands-on training on ab initio calculations of many properties relating to the electron-phonon interaction, for applications in condensed matter physics, materials physics, and nanoscience. Materials properties that will be covered include electron-phonon coupling, temperature-dependent band structures, carrier mobilities, electrical conductivity, phonon-assisted optical absorption, and phonon-mediated superconductivity.

Participants will learn how to perform cutting-edge electron-phonon calculations using a variety of electronic structure codes, including EPW, Wannier90, Quantum ESPRESSO, and ABINIT.

Confirmed lecturers include:

S. de Gironcoli, SISSA
P. Giannozzi, Universiy of Udine
F. Giustino, University of Oxford
X. Gonze, Université catholique of Louvain
E. Kioupakis, University of Michigan
E. R. Margine, Binghamton University-SUNY
G. Pizzi, EPFL
S. Poncé, University of Oxford

There is no registration fee to attend this event.

Scientists from developing countries are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding will be available to support the attendance of selected participants.

Female scientists are also strongly encouraged to apply.

The registration will open November 10, with deadlines as follows:

1 December 2017: for those needing visa and/or financial support
15 January 2018: for everybody else

As the number of places is limited, we strongly encourage prospective participants to apply as early as possible.

Further information and instructions on how to register can be found at the following website:
http://indico.ictp.it/event/8301

We are looking forward to seeing you in Trieste,

Best regards,

S. Poncé, E.R. Margine, R. Gebauer, N. Seriani, and F. Giustino

Dear Prof.S. Ponce

I am very much interested to attend this workshop. I already submitted the application. But have a little confusion that I didn't get any reply or any other confirmation for my application submission. I suppose my referees have not yet send there recommendation. Is that the reason?

Or is this the process?

Thank you very much for organizing this great work shop and good luck.

Inoka

Dear Inoka,

You will have news after the deadline for submission is passed (either after Dec 1 if you need a visa or after Jan if not).

Best,
Samuel

Dear all,

The school was very nice and ended last Friday. We had 72 participants from 28 countries.

For those who could not attend, all the slides of the lectures, video and inputs for the hands-on are available on http://epw.org.uk/Documentation/School2018

Best,
Samuel
