This Workshop will follow the series started in Oxford, U.K. (1983) and continued in Braunschweig, Germany (1984) and in Trieste, Italy (since 1987, every two years). Following the tradition of the previous meetings, the Workshop will be devoted to recent advances in computational condensed matter physics and materials science, based on realistic calculations of the electronic structure of complex systems.
The activity will be held at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy from 10 to 12 January 2013 with the co-sponsorship of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), the CNR-IOM DEMOCRITOS Simulation Center, the Consorzio per la Fisica-Trieste, and Psi-k.
As in previous events of this series, the Workshop will consist of invited talks and a contributed poster session, with ample space devoted to discussion.

PARTICIPATION: Scientists from all countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA may attend the Workshop. As the activity will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of this language. There is no registration fee. Travel and subsistence expenses of participants should be borne by their home institutions. Limited funds are available for some participants who are nationals of, and working in, a developing country, to be selected by the Organizers. However, every effort should be made by candidates to secure at least partial support for their travel expenses.
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTED POSTERS: During the activity there will be one or more poster sessions. If you want to present a poster, please indicate this in the corresponding field of the online registration.
Hands-on Tutorial on Electronic Structure Computations
A Hands-on Tutorial on Electronic Structure Computations will be organized in the week following the Workshop, January 14-18, 2013. Advanced topics like electronic transport, excitations (TDDFT and GW) and Quantum Monte Carlo computations will be treated. Students and young postdocs with a proven experience in ab initio electronic structure computations may participate in this tutorial. The Tutorial is open only for participants of the Workshop.
