School “Wannier90 v3.0: new features and applications” – Oxford, 25-27 March 2020

January 15, 2020

We are pleased to announce a 3-day school with title “Wannier90 v3.0: new features and applications”, which will be held at St. Edmund Hall, University of Oxford, UK, on 25-27 March 2020 (closest airport: London Heathrow).

Over the last few years, Wannier90 has undergone a transition from a code developed by a small group of developers to a community code with a much wider developers base. In response, the code has grown significantly, gaining many novel features contributed by this community. The culmination of all these contributions has been the release of a new version of the Wannier90 code (version 3.0) with a new website for the occasion (www.wannier.org) and a collaborative article [Pizzi et al., Wannier90 as a community code: new features and applications. J. Phys. Condens. Matter (accepted)].

In this 3-day school, we aim to present the state-of-the-art functionalities of the Wannier90 code, with a particular focus on the latest developments (topological, transport and optical properties; automated Wannier functions; high throughput calculations) to both new and experienced users, and developers alike. Each day will be divided into two sections, one in the morning with lectures on selected topics and one in the afternoon with hands-on tutorials.

The registration fee, which includes accommodation for 3 nights (with breakfast) in a single room with shared bathroom at St. Edmund Hall, coffee breaks and a social dinner on the second night of the school (Thursday) is £120. To book one or more extra night(s) please contact us at wannier90.workshop@gmail.com.

A schedule of the event may be found below.

Due to the limited number of places, applicants are required to fill in an application form, which may be found here. Applicants who want to present a poster should also send a title and an abstract at the same time as the aforementioned form to wannier90.workshop@gmail.com. The deadline for the registration and submission is the 1st of February 2020.

Confirmation of participation will be sent out by the 5th of February 2020 at the latest.
