    Quantum ESPRESSO Events 2015

    Advanced Quantum ESPRESSO Developers’ Training (January 19-30, 2015 ) will be held at ICTP Trieste, Italy. This workshop is a great opportunity to close the gap between the theory and the implementation of Kohn-Sham DFT and to learn how to code your own ideas within Quantum ESPRESSO. Register here: (deadline: October 30, 2014) [Note that the training takes place right after another event held at ICTP: "Total energy and force methods 2015" ]

    The Quantum ESPRESSO prize

    The Quantum ESPRESSO Foundation, in collaboration with Eurotech, announces the establishment of the Quantum ESPRESSO prize for quantum mechanical materials modeling. The prize, which consists of a diploma and a check of one thousand euros, will be awarded annually in January to recognize outstanding doctoral thesis research in the field of quantum mechanical materials modeling, realized with the help of the Quantum ESPRESSO suite of computer codes. Excellence will be rewarded for both original applications and methodological innovation.
