Frontiers of Electronic Structure Theory:
New Concepts and Developments in Density Functional Theory and Beyond

Symposium at the DPG Spring Meeting: Dresden, Germany, March 19 – 24, 2017





With more than 6,000 expected participants the DPG Spring Meeting is the largest European physics conference (the second largest physics conference worldwide) covering all aspects of condensed matter and chemical physics, materials science, surface science, as well as polymer and biophysics, and more. For a few years now the conference language has been English.

You are invited to attend the DPG Spring Meeting from March 19-24, 2017 in Dresden and in particular the above noted symposium which is organized by

John Perdew (Temple University), Angel Rubio (Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Hamburg) and Matthias Scheffler (Fritz-Haber-Institut, Berlin)

This is an official symposium at the DPG spring meeting, which is hosted by the surface science division, but topics of talks and posters are not restricted to surface science. There will be invited talks, contributed talks, and a poster session. We are grateful that the symposium is again hosted by the surface-science division. Please note that this hosting does NOT imply that talks need to be restricted to this scientific area.

Invited Speakers at the symposium include:

  • Arun Bansil (Northeastern University, Boston, USA)
  • Kieron Burke (University of California, Irvine, USA)
  • Paola Gori-Giorgi (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
  • Neepa Maitra (Hunter College of the City University of New York, USA)
  • Fred Manby (University of Bristol, UK)
  • Andreas Savin (CNRS, Paris, France)
  • Kristian S. Thygesen (Technical University of Denmark, Kongens Lyngby, Denmark)
  • Weitao Yang (Duke University, Durham, USA)
  • Igor Ying Zhang (Fritz Haber Institute, Berlin, Germany)
