TREX e-Summer School on Quantum Monte Carlo with TurboRVB

Join the TREX e-Summer School on Quantum Monte Carlo with TurboRVB

07 June 2021

On 12-16 July 2021, TREX is organising a joint e-summer school in partnership with the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) and with the Psi-K network.  TREX is the targeted Center of Excellence for the community of quantum chemistry funded by the European Commission.  It aims to develop and apply high-performance software solutions for quantum mechanical simulations at the exascale via efficient and portable QMC libraries, and to feed a stronger QMC community of users.

Apply for the TREX e-Summer School on TurboRVB

The TREX e-Summer School represents a unique opportunity to provide a comprehensive introduction to QMC methods without any prerequisite. During this e-School, which will run as a virtual event from 12-16 July 2021, students will be using TurboRVB for QMC applications and tutorials. TurboRVB is a computational package for ab initio Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulations of both molecular and bulk electronic systems. The code implements two types of well-established QMC algorithms: Variational Monte Carlo (VMC), and Diffusion Monte Carlo in its robust and efficient lattice regularized variant.

The TREX e-summer school offers an inclusive platform for all stakeholders to share results and innovations with TREX and the community of students, researchers, HPC actors, and the high-tech industry. Interested HPC experts and researchers are invited to submit their application by July the 5th and become an active member of the e-school.

When applying you’ll be requested to provide personal information and details of a referee that can confirm your application. If your application is successful, the referee will be contacted to confirm your profile and experience.

TREX e-School poster contest

A call for posters also provides a unique opportunity to present results and ongoing activities at the TREX e-School and compete for the best poster competition! Poster applications will be selected by the e-School programme committee based on their relevance to the workshop topics and their potential impact on the discussion.

Important dates:

●    Registration closed on 5 July 2021, 17:00 CEST
●    Call for posters - deadline 5 July 2021, 17:00 CEST
