It is a wide network, co-ordinated by a series of working groups, to help build cooperation in our subject. Everyone in the field of electronic structure calculations is invited to join the Ψk Portal. Via the portal you distribute and receive information about workshops, conferences and job announcements. You also receive the Ψk newsletters with highlights in our field and abstracts of preprints. Everyone is invited to contribute to this newsletter.

The Network is an attempt to promote excellence in our subject, through collaborations across Europe, including helping those in smaller, or new, or isolated research groups. Read more about Ψk.
