South Africa 2008



The first African School on Electronic Structure Methods took place from 14-25 July 2008 at the African Institute of Mathematical Science (AIMS) in Muizenberg, South Africa. This set the seeds for the ASESMA series to take place from 2010. The program included the basics of electronic structure methods and hands-on tutorials using the Quantum Espresso code. Several sessions on advanced topics were held covering Surfaces and Films, Extreme Materials, Charge Transport and New Materials.
