ICAMM 2012 & VASP workshop, June 11-16, 2012

For the first time in the history of the VASP code, the VASP workshop will be held in Nantes (France), at the “Institut des Matériaux Jean Rouxel” (IMN) from Monday, June 11th to Wednesday, June 13th, 2012.

In connection to this event, the second edition of the International Conference on Advanced Materials Modelling (ICAMM) will be held at the same place from Thursday, June 14th to Saturday, June 16th, 2012.

VASP WORKSHOP, June 11-13, 2012
Scope of the Workshop:

This VASP workshop deals with density functional (DFT) calculations using the Vienna Ab-initio Simulation Package. VASP is one of the most popular electronic structure codes performing ab-initio quantum-mechanical molecular dynamics (MD) using pseudopotentials and a plane wave basis set. The workshop is a unique opportunity to learn the use, power and limitations of the package with the tutoring of the authors and developers of the code. The activities will be aimed at graduate students and researchers from industry and academia. The only pre-requisite is to have a basic knowledge of solid state physics, and chemistry.

The workshop covers three aspects:

- Introduction to DFT and plane wave/pseudopotential methods
- Applications using VASP code (and related methods)
- Lectures on and exercises with VASP

ICAMM 2012, June 14-16, 2012
2nd edition of the International Conference on Advanced Materials Modelling
Scope of the Conference:

This conference is the second edition of a bi-annual series aimed to gather scientists working in the field of theoretical chemistry and physics, and who are interested in:

- Using various calculation methods in order to understand the properties (optical, electronic, magnetic, ferroelectric, piezoelectric, multiferroic, catalytic, photovoltaics) of advanced materials having various applications in the field of energy storage and conversion, memories, optoelectronics…;

- Codes developments (WIEN2k, VASP, FHI-AIMS, CASTEP, ABINIT, SIESTA, Quantum ESPRESSO, OCTOPUS, AIMPRO…) and new implementations in semi-empirical and/or first-principles approaches;

- Simulating electronic, optical and vibrational spectroscopies (XAS, ELNES, EELS, XPS, IR/Raman, NMR…).
