As previously announced on these lists the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will jointly organize this School and Workshop on Fundamental Methods for Atomic, Molecular and Materials Properties in Plasma Environments. The one-week event at ICTP in Trieste, from 16 to 20 April 2018, will provide training and information exchange for computational scientists working on models and data for atomic, molecular and materials processes relevant to fusion energy research, industrial plasmas, laser-produced plasmas, astrophysical plasmas, and warm and hot dense matter. Topics span several disciplines: from molecules to materials and from method developments to data treatments. Topics related to energetic events and electronically excited states are emphasized throughout the programme. The schedule features lectures by international experts, invited and contributed research talks, posters and discussion sessions, with ample time available for interaction and discussions.
Dates: 16 - 20 April 2018. Deadline for application and abstracts: 20 November 2017.
Location: International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) - Miramare, Trieste, Italy.

The event caters to advanced PhD students, postdocs and established researchers. Some participants will come from a plasma applications background, but then they need to be acquainted already with computational methods in atomic, molecular or materials science, so familiar with relevant electronic structure theory and/or molecular dynamics approaches. Other participants will come from theoretical atomic, molecular or materials science and for those participants we expect that their work is concerned with or at least is relevant to applications in a plasma context. The event is not for beginning PhD students, but it could be valuable for established researchers that want to broaden their outlook. There is no registration fee for attending the event and accommodation at ICTP or in the vicinity is available at low cost. We encourage applications from around the world. Lodging support and some travel support is available for selected participants, with priority given to participants working in a developing country and who are at the early stage of their career.
