The QUANTUM ESPRESSO Foundation and the EU MaX Centre of Excellence for Supercomputing Applications, in association with the Jožef Stefan Institute, organized a one-week summer school on Advanced Materials and Molecular Modelling with Quantum ESPRESSO.

School Motivation

The aim of the school was to introduce students, postdocs, and other researchers to materials and molecular modelling with Quantum ESPRESSO. The school covered basic concepts as well as recent advances and developments, with emphasis on density-functional-theory based methods and high-performance computing.

The school followed a two-decade-long tradition of Quantum ESPRESSO training courses that have been held all over the world and is part of an ongoing effort of the MaX CoE to widen the scope of its action to European countries outside the consortium.
