Note on the International Conference conducted by The Academy between Oct 28- 30th, 2021:
The title of the conference was CONFERENCE ON CONDENSED MATTER. The lectures were focused on DFT, Band structure methologies, Strongly correlated systems, DMFT, High Tc Materials, High Pressure and DFT calculations applied to Biomaterials.
It had 27 Indian speakers drawn from IISc, IMSC, S.N BOSE INSTITUTE , JNCASR, BARC, IGCAR, CECRI, IISER , VIT, ANNA UNIVERSITY .THE FIVE FOREIGN SPEAKERS WERE ALL DIRECTORES OF SEVERAL RESEARCH INSTITUES AND UNIVERSITIES FROM AUSTRIA, USA, UK AND GERMANY
It was attended by 180 participants all over from the country.
At the end of the conference, it was decided to hold a course of lectures on DMFT to remove the defiencies in DFT.
This led to the conduct of a series of lectures on DFT+DMFT and the lectures will be given by Prof Vidhyadhiraja of JNCASR, which may be followed by a few more lectures from IMSC.
