    May 31, 2022, from 16:00 until 17:15, Zoom

    The 31st NCCR MARVEL Distinguished Lecture will be given by Prof. Alán Aspuru-Guzik, professor of chemistry and computer science at the University of Toronto, and entitled: "There is no time for science as usual: Materials Acceleration Platforms".

  • First-Principles Modelling of Defects in Solids - Workshop

    Jun 13, 2022, 9:30 until Jun 15, 2022, 17:45, ETHZ

    The workshop will take place June 13-15, 2022 at ETH in Zurich. Apart from scientific concerns, the event aims to address environmental issues as well, and the utmost will be done to mitigate the impact of the workshop on the environment.

  • 2022 Summer camp for high-school students

    Jun 27, 2022, 9:00 until Jul 01, 2022, 17:00, EPFL, Lausanne

    The 1-week camp entitled Des atomes aux ordinateurs, à la découverte de la programmation scientifique  is open to teenagers in the last two years of high-school, with no high-level in maths or physics prerequisite. A prior knowledge of the basics of programming is recommended. It is possible to acquire these notions independently if necessary (within 3-4 hours). Half of the seats are reserved for young women.

  • Psi-k conference

    Aug 22, 2022, 14:00 until Aug 25, 2022, 18:00, SwissTech Convention Center, EPFL

    First postponed from 2020 to 2021, the Psi-k conference will now take place this summer, on August 22-25, 2022, preserving the same format and symposia. This major conference – the largest worldwide in electronic-structure – brings together the community that is active in the field, to develop fundamental theory, algorithms, and computer codes in order to understand, predict, and design materials properties and functions. Theoretical condensed matter physics, quantum chemistry, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics form its scientific core. Applications encompass inorganic, organic and bio-materials, and cover a whole range of diverse scientific, engineering, and industrial endeavours.
