Dear WIEN2k users,

We are happy to announce the WIEN2k workshop for 2016. It will be held at:

              McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada
                      4. - 7. June 2016

and hosted by O. Rubel (who contributed the BerryPI package to WIEN2k).

The 23rd workshop in the history of the WIEN code is a hands-on activity dedicated to teach the use of the WIEN2k Density Functional Theory Package. WIEN2k is one of the most popular electronic structure codes used to perform calculations with the Full Potential LAPW method. The workshop is a unique opportunity to learn the use, power and limitations of the package with the tutoring of the authors and developers of the code. The activities will be aimed at graduate students and researchers from industry and academia. The only pre-requisite is to have a basic knowledge of solid state physics and chemistry. It is planned as a four-day activity with lectures on the scientific aspects of the method, applications and hands-on activities on selected examples. It is a unique opportunity to receive a head start on a personal project (and probably reduces the time of your PhD by at least one year).

You can present a Poster of your current work and in addition this workshop is coupled to the

              28th Canadian Material Science Conference

(; from 7. - 11. June 2016) which could be of interest for you too.

Hamilton can be reached easily from Toronto, where International flights are available to many countrys worldwide.

The reduced registration cost (until 5.April only !!) is CND $550 (about USD $400 ) and covers Lunches, Coffee breaks and the social event, which will be an exciting excursion to the Niagara Falls!
