The aim of this school is to form young generations of researchers (PhD students, postdocs, young assistant professors) to atomic, molecular and condensed phase computational methods, from theory to the most advanced approaches, going from the very microscopic to the macroscopic: Density Functional Theory, classical Monte-Carlo and molecular dynamics, ab initio molecular dynamics, metadynamics, linear response, lattice-Boltzmann methods, Quantum Monte-Carlo, Path-Integral.
Our ambition is to make students aware of the fundamental principles of each methods, and then able to choose the most adapted one(s) for a given scientific problem. The broad panel of approaches we propose, both via theory lessons and computer lab "projects", is unique.

This school benefits both from the exceptional central Paris environment, and from the local concentration of young and confirmed experts-teachers in each specific theme of the school, including Michele Casula, Guillaume Ferlat, Fabio Finocchi, Marie Jardat, Maximilien Levesque, Virginie Marry, Fabio Pietrucci, Benjamin Rotenberg, A. Marco Saitta, Mathieu Salanne, Ari Seitsonen, Rodolphe Vuilleumier.
