Online workshop on

Computational Materials Science

Saturday, 9th and Sunday, 10th December 2023

Computational Materials Science 2023 poster

About the workshop

The two-day online training workshop is dedicated to most recent advances in the theory and simulation of Materials. The speakers are well-known experts in their fields. The workshop is aimed to young researchers in theoretical and computational Materials Science, including senior undergraduate students, graduate students, PhD candidates, postdocs and early-career investigators.

The event is co-organized by the Department of Physics National Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Physics Laboratory Department of Education, ASPETE and the Hellenic Society for the Science and Technology of Condensed Matter (HSSTCM).

HSSTCM is a Greek non-profit scientific society founded in 1981 which is member of Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS). The objectives of HSSTCM is to promote the exchange of new developments and achievements in the field of Condensed Matter and Materials Science, and to support their applications. Membership costs 20 euros (10 euros for students) per year; please visit the HSSTCM webpage for details.


Participation to this workshop is free of charge for HSSTCM or FEMS members.

To participate in this conference, you must have paid your 2023 membership fee of HSSTCM by Dec. 7th.

Besides CMS23, HSSTCM members receive discounts at the EUROMAT conference organized by FEMS while student members can claim scholarship discounts/exemptions in various conferences. Most important, HSSTCM members become part of the Greek Materials Science community and receive newsletters with conference announcements, job offers and other news.

HSSTCM membership costs 20 euros per year (10 euros for students of all levels). To become member or to renew your membership:

  1. Fill the membership form found at the HSSTCM webpage
  2. Make a bank transfer to the IBAN given in the membership form and
  3. Send the filled membership form and the receipt of the bank transfer to hsstcm@hsstcm.eu
All HSSTCM members will receive email with instructions on how to connect to the workshop teleconference on Dec. 8th.

Please contact dkehrakos@aspete.gr, atasolam@phys.uoa.gr, remed@materials.uoc.gr for further information.

Participation Certificate

Certificate of attendance will be provided to all participants. Details on how to receive certificates will be posted here after the conference.


The duration of each talk is 35 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of discussion. Participants are encouraged to participate actively by asking questions after each talk (or even during the talk if speaker permits it) and stimulating discussion.
