Welcome to the 20th Asian workshop on First-Principles Electronic Structure Calculations.

This workshop is an annual series starting in 1998 to provide a forum for discussing all the important issues in computational condensed matter physics and materials science. The principal purpose of the workshop is to offer an opportunity for exchanging ideas and enjoying in-depth discussion both in the methodology in computational physics and chemistry and its application to a wide variety of materials having not only fundamental significance and but also industrial importance.

This workshop consists of invited talks and contributed poster presentations. The majority of the participants are active scientists and researchers in electronic structure theory from all Asian countries. Yet scientists, and researchers from other areas are also very welcome to join us.


In 2017, this workshop will be held in Technology Building of Nanjing University, at Nanjing in China from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1.

  • No registration fee will be charged following the policy of the Asian Workshops previously held.
  • Registration deadline: September 30, 2017 (Extended to October 20, 2017).
  • Abstract submission deadline: September 30, 2017 (Extended to October 20, 2017).
  • Conference Venue: Technology Building, Nanjing University Gulou Campus. 22 Hankou Road, Gulou District, Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China (江苏省 南京市 鼓楼区 汉口路22号 南京大学科技馆).
