Workshop on Computational Materials with DFT (23-27 July 2017) @ UTM

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to join our hands-on workshop, which will be held at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Johor Bahru, on 23-27 July 2017. The workshop is hosted by Scientific Computing and Instrumentation Research Group (SCnI), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. The event is aimed to promote the research on materials using computational methods framed, in particular, within density functional theory (DFT), and build a collaborative research network at national and international level.


  • Introduction to computational materials using DFT
  • Introduction to Linux environment (Ubuntu)
  • Learn to compile software (WIEN2k) in Linux environment
  • Learn to use WIEN2k to perform calculation of material properties
  • Social media group will be created for continuous discussion, share problems, and establish research collaborations
  • Friendly for newcomers

Important dates:
Registration deadline: 18th July 2017
Workshop Date: 23-27 July 2017

Registration fees
RM 600.00 (Meals are included)
