October 30 - November 1, 2020


The 8th CALYPSO workshop organized by the State Key Laboratory of Superhard Materials,International Center for Computational method and Software, College of Physics of Jilin University will be held in Jilin University from October 30th to November 1st, 2020.

CALYPSO is one of the widely used structure prediction methods. CALYPSO users are currently beyond 2,900, spreading out over 70 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.

Our workshop will be webcast by KouShare and Tencent Meeting. Welcome to our workshop.
