The Call for Applications to attend the entire programme will be open soon

An ICTP meeting

The event includes a two-and-a-half-day hands-on workshop along with participation in the XXV Latin American Symposium on Solid State Physics (SLAFES). More details about the symposium are available here: Applications through this webpage are required only for those participants interested in attending the entire program. For those interested in attending the symposium only, applications must be made here: Attending only the hands-on workshop is not an option.
The event aims to enhance the capabilities of scientists in Latin America by complementing the efforts of local networks like SCALAC, Red-Clara, and LaRedCCA2 in utilizing high-performance computing (HPC) in materials science. This event addresses inequalities and promotes the adoption of HPC methodologies by covering topics such as modern parallel architectures, practical skills for non-IT experts in using open-source scientific codes, running hybrid programs with accelerators, and hands-on experience in configuring and managing calculations for materials research and visualization. The workshop offers an intensive program that balances theoretical knowledge with practical application, ensuring that participants gain a solid understanding of how to apply HPC techniques to their research endeavours in materials science.
Only a limited number of participants will be selected to attend the entire program at no registration fee. Additionally, a limited number of grants are available to support attendance for the entire program, with priority given to participants from Latin America.

Grants: A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. There is no registration fee.
