Campus Adlershof, and is now open for registration.

The event comprises:

  • Keynote lectures covering introductions to density-functional theory and many-body perturbation theory
  • Hands-on course on the exciting code
  • International conference on excitations in solids, covering most recent theoretical advances together with the forefront of experimental research.

We encourage participants to submit abstracts for contributed talks or for poster presentations.

The number of participants is restricted to 70.

Limited financial support is available for young scientists (PhD students and young post-docs).
The deadline for regular registration and request for financial support is May 1, 2020.
