Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Time-Dependent Density-Functional Theory is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange novel results and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is on fundamental aspects of TDDFT, excitations and dynamics in the linear and non-linear regime and coupled electron-ion dynamics from first principles. We invite young researchers engaged in TDDFT and related fields to submit an abstract in one of the following topics: Fundamentals of TDDFT; Functional Developments (memory and non-locality effects, Van der Waals Interactions, etc.); Excitations and dynamics in the linear and non-linear regime (real-time propagation); Non-equilibrium Green's functions, Time-Dependent Reduced-Density-Matrix-Functional Theory, Quantum Continuum Mechanics, Semi-classical approaches; Electron-Nuclei Dynamics; Transport; Photochemistry, Solar Energy Conversation and Optical properties; Novel Algorithms, Implementations and Applications.

The meeting will conclude with a career panel composed of leading scientists in the field of TDDFT.
