10th ABINIT International Developer Workshop

May 31 - June 4, 2021

The developer workshop is always an opportunity to invite external researchers, from other codes and communities, to exchange best practices and expertise...  
Virtual discussion rooms will be opened to users and will offer them the possibility to meet ABINIT developers and discuss. A registration schedule will be available. Interested ABINIT users will have to register and propose topics in advance. Each virtual room will gather users and developers...
