Subject: 15.01.20 Workshop on Crystal Structure Prediction and Materials Discovery with the USPEX code
Dear friends,

It is a pleasure to announce the 8th hands-on workshop on Crystal 
Structure Prediction and Materials Discovery with the USPEX code, 
which will take place in Shiv Nadar University (near New Delhi, India) 
on January 20-24, 2015. Morning sessions will consist of lectures by 
developers and advanced users of USPEX and some key figures in this 
field, whereas afternoons will be dedicated to hands-on exercises. 
Participants will have an opportunity to solve problems related to 
their research and to present their work. 
The workshop will include an excursion to Agra and Taj Mahal. 

The workshop is supported by the International Union of Crystallography, 
Shiv Nadar University, Stony Brook University. Thanks to generous support, 
registration fees (inclusive of accommodation, meals and excursion) are 
For program and registration details, please see

The number of seats is limited, so register early!

P.S. For those who don’t know, USPEX is a powerful code, enabling 
prediction of 3D (crystals), 2D (surfaces, interfaces, 2D-crystals), 
1D (polymers) and 0D (clusters) structures by global optimization. It 
has unique efficiency, especially for large and complex systems. USPEX 
is used by nearly 2000 researchers and several major companies, and is 
free for academic researchers.
