ISTPC 2020

3rd edition of the International summer School in electronic structure Theory: electron correlation in Physics and Chemistry (ISTPC)

New Dates: April 11-24, 2021

Location: Centre Paul Langevin, Aussois, Savoie, France.

Latest news

* June 15th, 2020: We expect the third edition of ISTPC to take place in Aussois in the period April 11th-24th, 2021.

* April 22nd, 2020: Due to the coronavirus, ISTPC will be postponed to 2021 (probably in March or April). We will keep you updated about the definitive dates. We do hope that all the registered participants (and their relatives) are safe and that they will be able to come to Aussois in 2021.

* December 6th, 2019: ISTPC has been selected for being part of the 2020 CECAM flagship program. Both French South-West and Rhône-Alpes nodes [CECAM-FR-GSO and CECAM-FR-RA] will provide financial support to the summer school.

First announcement

Dear colleagues,

we are glad to announce that the third edition of the International summer School in electronic structure Theory “electron correlation in Physics and Chemistry” (ISTPC) will take place in Aussois (Savoie, France) from the 14th to the 27th of June 2020.

This two-week summer school is open to Master/PhD students, post-docs and researchers using or developing methods for electronic structure calculations. One of the motivation for organizing such a school is to stimulate discussions between chemists and physicists on the problem of electron correlation.

The number of participants is limited to 40 on a first come - first served basis. The registration webpage is under construction.

If you wish to be on the pre-registration list (and you want to get updated about ISTPC) you just have to send an email to (replace VED by @).

ISTPC 2020 is organized with the support of the national research groups (GDRs) NBODY and REST.

More scientific details are given below.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at ISTPC 2020!

Emmanuel Fromager, Vincent Robert, Julien Toulouse, Pina Romaniello, and Pierre-François Loos.

Scientific program

The following topics will be covered:

Second quantization, density functional theory (DFT), Reduced density-matrix functional theory (RDMFT), time-dependent DFT (TD-DFT), Hartree-Fock (HF) and post-HF methods, multi-configurational methods, multi-reference perturbation theory, model Hamiltonians, linear response theory, basics in solid-state physics, Green's functions, Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC), density matrix renormalization group (DMRG), Random Phase Approximation (RPA), GW method, Bethe-Salpeter equation, Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT), Mathematical aspects of electronic structure theory.

Three one-hour-and-half lectures will be given every day (two in the morning and one in the afternoon). Tutorials will also be proposed every afternoon so that the participants can derive the key equations presented during the lectures. A poster session will be organized so that each participant can present her/his own research work.
