Current and Future Events

  • 2022 Summer camp for high-school students

    Jun 27, 2022, 9:00 until Jul 01, 2022, 17:00, EPFL, Lausanne

    The 1-week camp entitled Des atomes aux ordinateurs, à la découverte de la programmation scientifique  is open to teenagers in the last two years of high-school, with no high-level in maths or physics prerequisite. A prior knowledge of the basics of programming is recommended. It is possible to acquire these notions independently if necessary (within 3-4 hours). Half of the seats are reserved for young women.

  • Swiss Equivariant Machine Learning Workshop

    Jul 11, 2022, 9:00 until Jul 14, 2022, 17:00, CECAM, Lausanne

    Machine learning (ML) based atomistic models are often faced with the challenge of learning physical or chemical properties that have well-defined transformations (equivariance) under translation, rotation,  and reflections of the corresponding atomic structures. The last few years have seen significant progress on enhancing ML approaches by including symmetry preserving operations, which has led to noteworthy improvements in both the accuracy and data-efficiency of models predicting physical quantities.

  • Psi-k conference

    Aug 22, 2022, 14:00 until Aug 25, 2022, 18:00, SwissTech Convention Center, EPFL

    Psi-k 2022 is the 6th general conference for the worldwide Psi-k community. Typically held every 5 years, this event is the largest worldwide in first-principles simulations. With more than 1000 participants attending the past 2010 and 2015 editions, it promises to be the most exciting, defining event in the field, offering an intense but enjoyable atmosphere, in addition to a chance to explore the beautiful region around Lausanne and Lake Geneva.
