Dear colleagues

Please find the 1st announcement of the 1st Paris International School 
on Advanced Computational Materials Science (PISACMS2015), which will be 
held from Mon Aug 24th to Sat Aug 29th, 2015, in the Jussieu campus of 
the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, in the heart of the Latin Quarter 
of central Paris.

The aim of this school is to form new generations of young 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. 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 rare in the international 
landscape. This school will benefit 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, Francesco 
Mauri, Fabio Pietrucci, Benjamin Rotenberg, A. Marco Saitta, Mathieu 
Salanne, Ari Seitsonen, Rodolphe Vuilleumier.
