The Yambo Team is pleased to announce the third Hands-on entirely dedicated to Yambo

Excitations in Realistic Materials using Yambo on Massively Parallel Architectures

13th - 17th April 2015
CECAM-HQ-EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

Yambo is a powerful, open-source ab-initio code interfaced with several DFT packages (including Abinit and quantum-ESPRESSO). This tutorial will mark the release of a completely new version of Yambo which is adapted for massively-parallel computing architectures. Current trends in high-performance computing are towards massively parallel, distributed memory architectures. Such features require specially tuned software as well as skilled users in order to efficiently obtain accurate results.

This 5-day hands-on tutorial will provide training in the theory and practice of computing electronic and optical excitations within density functional and Green’s function approaches (GW, TDDFT and BSE). Lectures will also focus on the application of these techniques to the study of realistic and challenging systems using the Yambo code within a massively-parallel environment.

Our goal is to thus equip students with the fundamental knowledge, practical skills and computational tools needed to tackle today’s challenging problems in materials science. Lectures on the foundations of the theoretical methods will be complemented by technical ones on numerical and computational aspects. A significant part of the school will be dedicated to hands-on tutorials, where participants will be given the opportunity to carry out excited state calculations on several paradigmatic systems under the guidance of the Yambo code developers themselves.

The number of participants will be limited to approx. 30. The organization will partially cover living expenses of the participants. Acceptance decisions will be made within 1 week after the deadline on the basis of motivations and CV provided at the moment of application.
