Riga, June 15-21

Scope

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together young scientists and experts in methods of electronic-structure theory and high-performance computing. The main focus of the hackathon is high-performance algorithms in many-body perturbation theory especially GW. However, coupled clusters and groundstate density-functional theory will be addressed too.

   

Hackathon programme

The event will take place at the House of Science, the Academic Centre of the University of Latvia.
