AiiDA introductory tutorial - Virtual edition

Jul 07, 2020, 9:00 until Jul 10, 2020, 21:30, Online

We are delighted to announce that the introductory tutorial to AiiDA — originally planned to take place in Vilnius — will be maintained and moved to a virtual format, taking place on July 7–10, 2020.

The goal of this 4 day-tutorial is to help students and researchers from the field of computational materials science get started with writing reproducible workflows. They will be introduced by experts in the field (including the developers of the code) to the use of AiiDA, a state-of-the-art framework for provenance tracking and workflow management designed to support high-throughput research, and will gain in-depth hands-on experience using a tool that they can directly apply to their own research.

Talks will be pre-recorded and made available to participants before the event. Hands-on tutorials will be held via Zoom [1], with participants running tutorials on their own computers within the Quantum Mobile virtual machine [2]. Two time slots will be provided for each session to accommodate for participants in different time zones.

Target Audience: Computational scientists from both academia and industry are encouraged to apply. Experience with Python is required, but prior experience with AiiDA is not necessary.

Registration: Participation in the event is free of charge. The registration deadline is June 19 and the number of participants is limited to 80. For more information and a link to the registration form, please visit the official page of the event:
