We call for participants for the 9th 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 dates

The School will start on Wednesday, October 19th. The participants are expected to arrive on Tuesday 18th, and a bus will be organized to facilitate the transport from the airport of Barcelona on that day. The School will finish on Monday, October 24th.

Workshop dates

The participants of the workshop that do no participate in the School are expected to arrive on October 24th. A bus will facilitate the transport from the airport of Barcelona. The workshop will start the following day (October 25th), and finish on the evening of the 27th, and another bus will facilitate the return trip to Barcelona airport the next morning.

For the 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:

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

Furthermore, we will give priority to students willing to participate in both the the School and the Workshop.
