After successful meetings in 1994 and 1999, the workshop stays within the interdisciplinary tradition
of the PPES series and aims at bringing together scientists with different backgrounds, e.g. in
condensed matter physics, materials science, computational physics, chemistry, and industry. There
will be experts of the field of total-energy calculations, scientists who develop or enhance methods,
and those who apply the information gained by these techniques. Attendance is by invitation only,
and the maximum number of participants is 40. There will be talks in the morning and in the evening.
In between there will be ample time for informal discussions and practical (e.g. skientific)
sessions on the workshop's topic (view the slide show of the 1999 meeting).
