Webinar on TU and Online Education in this COVID-19 Pandemicss

Central Dept of Physics, Tribhuvan University (TU), Dept. of Physics & Supercomputer Center, Kathmandu University (KU), and Condensed Matter Physics Research Center (CMPRC–Butwal) are jointly organizing a two day virtual workshop on "Quantum-Espresso and Data Visualizations" from May 1 – 2, 2020.
The objective of this workshop is to enhance the skills in Computational approach of Density Functional Theory to investigate the structural and electronic properties of materials using Quantum-Espresso code. The workshop also covers the advanced data visualizations using gnuplot.
Benefits:
i) All the selected participants will be provided an opportunity to work on KU-Supercomputer for limited time.
ii) Certificate will be given to eligible participants (based on examination).
The Webinar login ID & Password will be sent directly on email once you are registered to the above link. This keynote talk will focus on online teaching methodology suitable for faculties, researchers and teachers from different University and colleges in Nepal.
All interested are invited to attend this grand webinar program.
The program is expected to go live on:
Day: 14th May, 2020
Time: 12:05 PM (Nepal Standard Time, Sharp)

Words from Prof. Dr. Binil Aryal, Head, Central Department of Physics regarding the work published in Nature Materials:

(i) Success comes in succession! Great!!! The manuscript entitled 'Dirac fermions and flat bands in the ideal kagome metal FeSn' of Dr. Madhav Pd Ghimire and his collaborators has accepted by NATURE MATERIALS (SJR SCORE 16.524!!) today! This Journal is 4th High Ranked Journal (after Review of Modern Physics, Annual Review of A&A and Nature Nanotechnology) with h-index 403! Success materializes only after tremendous hardworking, hitting & lifting by dedication! Congratulation to the Collaborators (MIT, USA), Dr. Madhav and CDP family!!! I found that this is the first ever publication in Nature Materials from Nepal and 3rd publications in Nature (all) from Nepal. I am really happy! TU should be proud of CDP!!!
