*Paris International School on Advanced Computational Materials Science 
(PISACMS) 2016 - 2nd announcement*

Dear colleagues,

    Please find the 2nd announcement and the brand-new flyer of the 2nd 
Paris International School on Advanced Computational Materials Science 
(PISACMS), which will be held from Mon Aug 29th to Sun Sept 4th, 2016, in 
the Jussieu campus of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, in the heart of 
the Latin Quarter of central Paris.

*Pre-registrations are already beyond full-capacity (60), they will be kept 
open until the announced deadline of March 15th, when the selection process 
will start.*

    The aim of this school is to form young generations of researchers (PhD 
students, postdocs, young assistant professors) to atomic, molecular and 
condensed phase computational methods, from theory to the most advanced 
approaches, going from the very microscopic to the macroscopic: Density 
Functional Theory, classical Monte-Carlo and molecular dynamics, ab initio 
molecular dynamics, metadynamics, linear response, lattice-Boltzmann 
methods, Quantum Monte-Carlo, Path-Integral.  

    Our ambition is to make students aware of the fundamental principles of 
each methods, and then able to choose the most adapted one(s) for a given 
scientific problem. The broad panel of approaches we propose, both via 
theory lessons and computer lab "projects", is unique. 

   This school benefits both from the exceptional central Paris 
environment, and from the local concentration of young and confirmed 
experts-teachers in each specific theme of the school, including Michele 
Casula, Guillaume Ferlat, Fabio Finocchi, Marie Jardat, Maximilien 
Levesque, Virginie Marry, Fabio Pietrucci, Benjamin Rotenberg, A. Marco 
Saitta, Mathieu Salanne, Ari Seitsonen, Rodolphe Vuilleumier.

The PISACMS website is now open with full details and pre-registration:
