MAY 31 – early-bird deadline + abstract submission deadline to be considered for contributed talks

The conference will be the 6th general conference for the worldwide Psi-k community, following very successful events held in San Sebastian (2015), Berlin (2010), and Schwäbisch Gmünd (2005, 2000, 1996).

This major conference – the largest worldwide in electronic-structure – brings together the community that is active in the field, as described by the Psi-k mission statement: "... to develop fundamental theory, algorithms, and computer codes in order to understand, predict, and design materials properties and functions. Theoretical condensed matter physics, quantum chemistry, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics form its scientific core. Applications encompass inorganic, organic and bio-materials, and cover a whole range of diverse scientific, engineering, and industrial endeavours."

The conference program will be structured around 3.5 days, that will include 6 plenary talks as well as 38 symposia in 6 parallel sessions (~120 invited talks and ~170 contributed talks).

With more than 1000 participants attending the past editions, it promises to be the most exciting, defining event in the field, offering an intense but enjoyable atmosphere, in addition to a chance to explore the beautiful region around Lausanne and Lake Geneva.

We look forward to an exciting conference and to seeing you in Lausanne and at EPFL.
