SISSA is a scientific center based in Trieste. Its Condensed-Matter Theory group, led by Stefano Baroni, is considered to be the cradle of computer simulation of materials in Italy.
SISSA is the birthplace of QUANTUM ESPRESSO project. The research background is mostly in software engineering for materials simulation. In addition, the wide expertise of the scientists provided high level contributions in solving materials simulation problems in the field of theoretical spectroscopy.
Tasks in MAX
Beside being the main developer of QUANTUM ESPRESSO, another very relevant contribute by SISSA in MAX is the development of tools to perform data analytics on large sets of simulation outcomes or database search.
