The 2021 Workshop focused on electronic structure methods for the understanding of pre-edge features and L-edges spectra, considering multiplet theory and quantum chemistry. 

Our speakers were:

  • Prof. Frank de Groot, Professor of X-Ray Spectroscopy, Utrecht University
  • Prof. Dr. Frank Neese, Director of the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung
  • Dr. Marius Retegan, Scientist at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF)

Slides and training exercises from the school are available here.


The 2019 Summer School focused on the near-edge structure of X-Ray absorption spectra, including FDMNES and CP2K. 

Our speakers were:

  • Tom Penfold, Newcastle University
  • Yves Joly, French National Centre for Scientific Research
  • Fernanda Nunes, University of Zurich
  • Augustin Bussy, University of Zurich
