Frontiers of Electronic-Structure Theory: Focus on Electron-Phonon Interactions

Frontiers of Electronic-Structure Theory: Focus on Electron-Phonon Interactions

Symposium at the DPG Spring Meeting of the Condensed Matter Section 2020
Germany, Dresden, 15 March - 20 March 2020

The DPG meeting in Dresden is canceled - you find more information here


With more than 5,000 expected participants the DPG Spring Meeting of the Condensed Matter Section is the largest European physics conference covering all aspects of condensed matter and chemical physics, materials science, surface science, as well as polymer and biophysics, and more. For several years now the conference language has been English.

You are invited to attend the DPG Spring Meeting from March, 15 March - March, 20 2020 in Dresden and in particular the above noted symposium which is organized by:

Claudia Draxl (Humboldt-Universität Berlin), Feliciano Giustino (University of Texas at Austin), and Matthias Scheffler (Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin)

The goal of our symposium is to give an overview on recent developments in the area of electron-phonon interactions by inviting both well-known international experts and emerging researchers. We expect this symposium to attract a diverse audience, ranging from those involved in method development to practitioners in the various application areas. This is an official symposium at the DPG spring meeting of the Condensed Matter Section. 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 of the DPG. However, please note that this hosting does NOT imply that talks need to be restricted to this scientific area. While the invited lectures will have a focus on electron-phonon interactions, the symposium will cover the general field of computational materials and electronic structure theory.

Invited Speakers

  • Xavier Gonze (Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium)
  • Georg Kresse (University of Vienna, Austria)
  • Ion Errea (University of the Basque Country, Spain)
  • Fabio Caruso (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany)
