3rd workshop on extreme-scale programming tools
November 17, 2014, New Orleans, Louisiana (USA)

Approaching exascale, architectural complexity and severe resource limitations with respect to power, memory and I/O, make tools support in debugging and performance optimization more critical than ever before. However, the challenges mentioned above also apply to the tools development and, in particular, raise importance of topics such as automatic tuning and methodologies for exascale tools-aided application development. This workshop will serve as a forum for application, system, and tool developers to discuss the requirements for future exascale-enabled tools and the roadblocks that need to be addressed on the way.

Autumn School on Correlated Electrons: DMFT at 25: Infinite Dimensions
September 15-19, 2014, Jülich (Germany)

Dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) has opened new perspectives for dealing with strong electronic correlations and the associated emergent phenomena. This successful method has exploited the experience previously gained with single-impurity models (e.g., the Anderson model) transferring it to many-body lattice problems. The basis for this breakthrough was the realization, 25 years ago, that diagrammatic perturbation theory greatly simplifies in the limit of infinite dimensions, so that the self-energy becomes local. Nowadays DMFT, combined with ab-initio density-functional techniques, is the state-of-the art approach for strongly correlated materials.

Workshop SEPS 2014 (Software Engineering for Parallel Systems)
October 21, 2014, Portland, Oregon (USA)

The ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity embraces all aspects of software construction and delivery to make it the premier conference at the intersection of programming, languages, and software engineering.


October 15 - 17, 2013, Jülich (Germany)

This CECAM workshop is aimed at bridging the gap between quantum biology and life sciences. To this end we intend to bring together active researchers in the field of computational biomolecular spectroscopy.

September 23-27, 2013, Jülich (Germany)

Emergent phenomena are the hallmark of many-body systems, and yet to unravel their nature remains one of the central challenges in condensed-matter physics. In order to advance our understanding it is crucial to learn from the different manifestations of emergence as well as from the interplay of different emergent phases, such as magnetism and superconductivity. For addressing such problems, it is necessary to master a broad spectrum of techniques from traditionally separate branches of research, ranging from ab-initio approaches based on density-functional theory to advanced many-body methods to electron-lattice coupling and dynamics. In this school we aim to analyze emergence in some of its major manifestations in the solid-state and compare methodologies used to address specific aspects. The aim of the school is to introduce advanced graduate students and up to the essence of emergence and the modern approaches for modeling emergent properties of correlated matter.

CPMD Meeting - Matter, life, light from ab initio molecular dynamics simulations
September 2-6, 2013, Leipzig (Germany)

The CPMD meeting is an international conference, which takes place every second year. CPMD stands for Car-Parrinello molecular dynamics and it is a seminal example of an ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) method - a molecular dynamics technique which is nowadays irreplaceable in chemistry as it is able to describe chemical changes and therefore it is the method to be applied to real world applications. Up to now, it has been used in many fields of research. Examples would be the investigation of ionic liquids properties, the field of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis and the application to life science.
