Ab initio Molecular Dynamics Simulations:
State-of-the-Art and Milestones for the Future
Ab initio or Car-Parrinello Molecular Dynamics (CPMD) has become a widespread tool in atomistic simulations of materials and molecular systems in a variety of fields, encompassing physics, chemistry and materials science. The CPMD2016 workshop will bring together developers and practitioners in the field of ab initio MD, to discuss state-of-the-art methodological developments as well as applications, and to brainstorm about future milestones. The meeting will start on Wednesday morning, May 18th and end on Friday early afternoon, May 20th, with the daily agenda featuring two sessions including presentations followed by ample periods of general discussion.
Latest AIMD developments, encompassing electronic structure and sampling advances
AIMD applications in physics, chemistry and materials science
Large scale simulations on high performance architectures
