The 5th CALYPSO workshop organized by the State Key Laboratory of Superhard Materials of Jilin University will be held in Jilin University from October 11th to October 15th, 2017.

CALYPSO is one of the widely used structure prediction methods. CALYPSO users are currently beyond 1600, spreading out over 56 countries. The goal of this workshop is to bring together the experts in the field of structure prediction and CALYPSO users to discuss the latest progress of CALYPSO method, and its applications.

We believe that this is a unique opportunity for the CALYPSO users to learn more details on how to perform the structure searching on clusters, two-dimensional (2D) layers, surfaces, 3D crystals, as well as how to design novel functional materials (e.g., superhard or optical materials).

Our workshop program will be consisting of theory lectures and hands-on tutorial sessions. The workshop topics will focus 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 in 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. Practice will be carried out on dedicated computers. Our ultimate goal is to train the workshop participants to become experts in CALYPSO.

Registration fee is ¥900 (¥600 for student).

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

This workshop is particularly aimed at Chinese reasearches, therefore the workshop language is Chinese.
