UPDATE: ETSF Workshop Awards

The workshop closed with the ETSF Awards ceremony, where the "best poster" and "best presentation" were identified by the Awards Committee among the several excellent contributions.

The “best poster prize” was awarded to Davide Soranzio for his poster: "Spectral dependence of the anisotropic effects of optical phonons on the optical properties of type-II Weyl semimetal WTe2"

The “best presentation prize” was awarded to Davide Sangalli for his talk: "An ab-initio approach to describe coherent and non-coherent exciton dynamics".

Our congratulations to the awardees for their excellent work!

In the best tradition of the ETSF Workshop, besides conventional oral sessions, we will leave ample time for informal meetings and discussions. The conference participants will have lunch together to foster the informal exchange of ideas. Besides the social dinner, we are currently considering the organization of further social activities (likely a visit to an historical or cultural site/museum).

We will foster active participation of young researchers by giving them the opportunity to present their work. We will award the best presentation with a “best poster prize” and “best presentation prize”.

A special session will be dedicated to science policy issues, such as the career perspectives of postdocs and the underrepresentation of women in leading roles in STEM.

We plan two introductory lectures (tutorials) given by experienced researchers. The first one will cover the state-of-the-art and new challenges for theoretical spectroscopy (speaker Hardy Gross), the second one will focus on basic concepts of data science and machine learning for application in condensed matter simulations (Stefano Carrazza) .
