Octopus developers meeting - 22/23 October 2012

The first octopus developers meeting will take place at the LPMCN in Lyon, France on the 22 and 23 of October 2012 (seminar room at the ground floor of the LIPPMAN building). It will consist of a "scientific" day dedicated to recent or future scientific developments, and a "technical" day to discuss all technical issues related to paralellization, libraries, efficiency, etc.

Wishlist for Santa Octo-Claus

  1. provide more tutorials for different features
  2. update FAQ on website
  3. xc kernels other than LDA
  4. asymptotics of functionals, remove special treatment of LB94 from libxc
  5. improve HF implementation, mixing of the orbitals or density matrices
  6. remove old lcao code
  7. include PAW into octopus
  8. solids
