9th USPEX workshop

June 25-30, 2015
Poitiers University, France

Organizers:

The 9th hands-on workshop on Crystal Structure Prediction and Materials Discovery with the USPEX code will take place in Poitiers University (France) on June 25-30, 2015 and organized by Prof. Gilles Frapper. Morning sessions will consist of lectures by developers and advanced users of USPEX and some key figures in this field, whereas afternoons will be dedicated to hands-on exercises. Participants will have an opportunity to solve problems related to their research and to present their work. The workshop will include an excursion to the Loire river (wine tasting, Fontevraud abbey, castles...) and to others historical places in and around Poitiers. For Midsummer day, The "Fete de la Musique" in Poitiers will celebrate the beginning of the workshop. For program and registration details, please see

On January 11-12, 2014, we will hold a training event at Northwestern Polytechnical University (NWPU, Xi’an, China). This will be held at the base of the USPEX Training Center of NWPU. Participants from all countries are welcome. The total number of participants is limited to about 20, so please register early. Registration will close on 15 December 2013. To participate in the training, please email Professor Qingfeng Zeng, attaching your CV and publication list. There is no registration fee, participants only cover their own hotel and living costs. 10 most qualified applicants will receive a grant to cover their housing and meals during the workshop, and can stay for free for a period of up to one week to learn USPEX deeper. This training event will consist of mostly hands-on training. Participants are welcome to bring their own computational problems, which will be addressed during this training event.
