SAVE THE DATE: QMC Hands-on Summer Workshop

We are pleased to announce that the QMC Hands-on Summer Workshop will be held in Slovakia from 20-23 June 2022. Workshop will be organised by TREX project, National Competence Centre for HPC (NCC for HPC), Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS) and the Institute of Physics SAS.

The workshop will take place in person in Slovakia and participants will have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive theoretical overview and practical experience with quantum Monte Carlo methods and their molecular (Quantum Package and CHAMP codes) and periodic systems (TurboRVB). The lectures and trainings will be led by experts who are part of the European Center of Excellence TREX.

Main goals:

  • Provide participants a general overview of QMC foundations and their adaptation to simulations of molecular and periodic systems.
  • Provide an overview of the hot current topics in molecular, crystalline and low-dimensional systems. 
  • Provide hands-on experience with practical QMC simulations based on CHAMP and TurboRVB simulation codes.

Registration will be open soon!
