Korean Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS)  and  National Center for Theoretical Sciences (NCTS) signed an MOU many years ago and indeed the two Institutions have organized joint activities in the field of high energy physics in recent years. Now the COVID-19 pandemic is leaving us, we would like to organize annual joint workshops on the developments of ab initio methodologies and their applications in quantum materials in order to further promote cooperation and collaboration in condensed matter and materials science. The first workshop was held from April 27 (Thur.) to April 29 (Sat.), 2023, in NCTS, Taipei, Taiwan. This year, the second workshop will be held from April 17 to 19 in KIAS campus, Seoul, Korea. Participation of the Workshop will be in-person and registration deadline is 28th Feb. 2024.


About KIAS and NCTS
The Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) was founded in 1996 by Korean Government to promote research excellence in the basic sciences. KIAS is located on a 120,000 square-meter site in Seoul, where its members are provided with a research-friendly environment. As a flagship of the basic sciences in the region, KIAS provides a venue for advanced learning and active discovery of new ideas. Through these efforts, the Institute ultimately aims to contribute to advancement of our civilization. KIAS, aspiring to be a world-class hub of research activity, welcomes opportunities of interaction with research communities around the world.
