First part | Second part | Third part

As the third part of the summer school, Advanced Lecture Series will be held on July 11th and 12th. Leading researchers will give a lecture on advanced topics covering methodological developments in computational physics and chemistry and its application to a wide variety of materials having not only fundamental significance and but also industrial importance. The Advanced Lecture Series will highlight the current status of first-principles electronic structure calculations and may indicate a future direction of the field. In addition to this, there will be a poster session of contributed participants to enhance active discussion in the afternoon of the first day (July 11th).

The following program is still temporal. We will update it once more details are fixed.
