WELCOME

CALYPSO workshop is jointly organized by State Key Laboratory of Superhard Materials of Jilin University and Beijing Computational Science Research Center, and will be held in Beijing from August 7th to 10th, 2013.

CALYPSO is one of the most widely used structure prediction methods. Currently, CALYPSO users are approaching 400 and distribute world-widely over 30 countries. The goal of the workshop is to bring together the experts in the field of structure prediction and users of CALYPSO to discuss the recent progress of CALYPSO method, and its future development and applications. We believe that this is a unique opportunity for the users of CALYPSO to learn in more details on how to predict structures of clusters, two-dimensional (2D) layers, surfaces, 3D crystals and design of novel functional materials (e.g., superhard materials).

Our workshop program will consist of theory lectures and hands-on tutorial sessions. Presentations will be focused on the basic principle of the main architecture of the method, the technical details of the most recent implementations and the latest applications of the CALYPSO code to material science. Particular emphasis will be placed on a tutorial session about the installation of the code and the calculation of a few basic examples will be practiced in dedicated computers and allow the participators to become experts in CALYPSO.

The registration for the workshop is now open. Please register here.

This workshop is particularly purposed to train Chinese scientists, and therefore the workshop language is in Chinese.

The first CALYPSO Workshop was held successfully in Beijing Computational Science Research Center during August 7 to 11, 2013. This workshop is jointly organized by State Key Laboratory of Superhard Materials of Jilin University and Beijing Computational Science Research Center, and attracted more than 200 experts and scholars from all over the world.
