Theoretical spectroscopy, i.e., calculating excitations from first principles, allows for an atomistic understanding of the formation, transport, and dissociation of excited states. While it can thus contribute importantly to the understanding and design of new materials, e.g., for energy conversion and storage, applications in practice are often challenged by the complexity of real-world materials and the required span of length- and time scales. The workshop aims to address this challenge by bringing together scientists from different fields such as many-body perturbation- and density functional-theory to discuss how theoretical spectroscopy can be advanced. The workshop will highlight new theoretical and computational developments, exploiting concepts from stochastic and low scaling methods, and embedding and machine learning techniques.

Information about posters 

Posters should be in A0 format (landscape or portrait). Please also prepare a “poster pitch” of 3 minutes maximum duration to summarize the work you are presenting and motivate the audience to visit your poster. A dedicated poster session will be held on Tuesday afternoon, but posters will be available throughout the week. You can prepare up to 3 slides for your poster pitch. Those slides should be sent to Linn Leppert ( until 17 March 2023 latest.
