Current and Future Events

  • Path Integral Quantum Mechanics: From the Basics to the Latest Developments

    Jun 14, 2021, 15:00 until Jun 18, 2021, 19:00, Lausanne

    The topic of this school is the path integral approach to quantum mechanics, which is one of the most computationally efficient methodologies for modeling quantum nuclear effects such as tunneling, delocalization, and zero-point fluctuations. 

  • Quantum Computing Hard- and Software Summer School 2021

    Jun 15, 2021, 9:00 until Jun 18, 2021, 18:30, Lausanne

    Applications are now open for the first ever Quantum Computing Hard- and Software Summer School 2021, sponsored by MARVEL and ETHZ-EPFL.

  • MARVEL Distinguished Lecture — Darío Gil

    Jun 15, 2021, from 14:00 until 15:15, Zoom

    The 25th NCCR MARVEL Distinguished Lecture will be given by Dr. Darío Gil, Senior Vice President and Director of IBM Research on "The Era of Accelerated Materials Discovery".

  • MARVEL seminar on open science and open access

    Jun 17, 2021, from 14:30 until 15:30, Zoom

    This 1-hour seminar will offer PhD students and postdocs an overview on open science and open access in publications and data. It will include presentations by Nicola Spaldin, Nicola Marzari and Giovanni Pizzi on these key concepts.

  • MARVEL Junior Seminar — June 2021

    Jun 25, 2021, from 14:00 until 15:15, Zoom

    The MARVEL Junior Seminar series is continuing in videoconferencing mode. We are therefore pleased to propose the 43rd MARVEL Junior Seminar: Maria Bilichenko (University of Zurich) and Cedric Klinkert (ETHZ) will present their research.

  • 2021 Summer camp for high-school students

    Jun 28, 2021, 9:00 until Jul 02, 2021, 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, 13:00 until Aug 25, 2022, 18:00, SwissTech Convention Center, EPFL

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: After first postponing the Psi-k 2020 conference to 2021, we have decided that it would still not be possible to host a successful event in person that year. Rather than hold the conference online, we feel strongly that it is worth waiting a little bit longer in order to be able to meet safely in person, as originally planned.Therefore, we now announce that the conference will be postponed by another year, to August 22-25, 2022, preserving the same format and symposia.Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to meeting you in 2022!Note: the Volker Heine Young Investigator Award ceremony will be held at a separate event in September 2021.
