8th BerkeleyGW Tutorial Workshop

and

3rd Berkeley Excited States Conference (BESC2022)

Welcome!

We are happy to have you join us for the 8th BerkeleyGW Tutorial Workshop and the 3rd Berkeley Excited States Conference (BESC2022), in a virtual online format this time. Time: January 10 - 12, 2022 (Tutorial Workshop) and January 13 - 14, 2022 (BESC2022 Conference).

Similar to last year, this year we will have a 3-day workshop (instructions and hands-on) + a 2-day conference.


BerkeleyGW Tutorial Workshop

Three-day workshop with instructions and hands-on sessions. Computing resources and temporary training accounts at NERSC will be provided.

Workshop Time: January 10 - 12, 2022, Pacific Standard Time

Location: Zoom ID & password will be provided to registered participants only


The target participants for the Workshop are graduate students, postdocs, and researchers who are interested in learning about or sharpening their skills on ab initio calculations of many-electron effects in excited-state properties of condensed matter.

Tutorial content includes GW and GW-BSE calculations using BerkeleyGW on solids and low-dimensional materials, quasiparticle band structures, optical spectra including electron-hole interactions, analysis of excitons, etc.

3rd Berkeley Excited States Conference (BESC2021)

In tandem with the BerkeleyGW Workshop, we will host a two-day conference (online virtual): the Berkeley Excited States Conference 2022 (BESC2022).

Conference Time: January 13 - 14, Pacific Standard Time

Location: Zoom ID & password will be provided to registered participants only


BESC2022 will be a general topical conference with mainly invited talks by experts on recent progress in the ab initio theory and applications and experimental studies of quantum many-body effects in excited-state phenomena in materials, showcasing forefront research that involves advanced many-body approaches (e.g. GW, GW-BSE & beyond, DMFT, quantum Monte Carlo, TDDFT, TDGW, etc.) and new science in the excited state.
