We call for participants for the 8th edition of the School and Workshop on Time-Dependent Density-Functional Theory (TDDFT).

The events will be held in the 'Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual' and it is intended to stimulate the exchange of ideas between scientists with different views of the field.

The Center provides many facilities and an agreeable atmosphere to allow the participants to carry their work during the meeting.

Benasque is a beautiful mountain village located 1140 m above sea level, in a valley at the heart of the Pyrenees, about 140 km north of the city of Zaragoza. The beautiful landscapes, scenic hikes and the proximity to the highest peaks in the Pyrenees make Benasque one of the main tourist sites in the region.

School Participants

As we have a very limited number of places for the school, students will be selected from among an open pool of applicants who have demonstrated a strong interest in computational sciences, applied to chemistry, physics, materials science and biology. Therefore, in order that we can make a reasonable selection, we ask that *all* candidates include in the comments section the following information:

      Date of birth, gender. Research experience (number of years)
      Motivation/Why they want to come (just a couple of lines is enough)
      What is their current and previous positions (if PhD or Post-doc state your supervisor)

We will *not* accept applications that do not include this information. Furthermore, we will give priority to students willing to participate in both the the School and the Workshop.


All interested in participating should fill out the application form at Registration.

In the comments section, please indicate if you wish to participate in the School or in the Workshop (or in both). If you wish to contribute to the Workshop with an oral contribution or a poster, please upload an abstract after you have completed the registration (see Call for contributions below).
