Scientific Program


This workshop serves as a platform to discuss methods of density functional theory (DFT) that are used to study the behavior of matter under extreme conditions as found in planets and stars. Besides traditional DFT based on the Kohn-Sham formalism, alternative approaches such as stochastic DFT and time-dependent DFT are covered. The goal of the workshop is to facilitate exchange and collaboration between scientists working in this lively research field and, in particular, to attract students and Ph.D. students. The number of participants is limited to 40.

Workshop format

We hope for fruitful and productive discussions during the workshop. We hope these will lead to new ideas and collaborations. We have therefore planned ample time and opportunities for discussions to happen.

The guidelines for presentations is the following:

  • Invited lectures (45 minutes + 15 minutes Q&A)
  • Invited talks (25 minutes + 5 minutes Q&A)
  • Contributed talks (15 minutes + 5 minutes Q&A)

The poster session will take place in the early evening of the first day before the workshop dinner.

We also plan to hold summary and discussions sessions on each day of the workshop. Please check the workshop timetable for their time slots.
