National Center for Theoretical Sciences (NCTS) and Korean Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) 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 2023 NCTS-KIAS Workshop on Ab Initio Approaches to Quantum Materials
will be the first of these joint workshops. The 2023 NCTS-KIAS Workshop will be held on April 27 (Thur.) - April 29 (Sat.), 2023, in the National Center for Theoretical Sciences on the campus of National Taiwan University (NTU), Taipei, Taiwan. Participation of the Workshop will be in-person.
1. The talks will be given by the invited speakers only but a limited number of poster presentations will be accepted.
2. For Poster Presenters, please submit the title and abstract of your poster by April 1 by emailing it to us. Thank you.

***5. There will be a banquet dinner for all the workshop participants on April 28.
Please register before April 10 if you'd like to join the dinner, for restaurant arrangement. Thank you very much.***
About NCTS and KIAS
The National Center for Theoretical Sciences (NCTS) was established in 1997 by the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), with strong endorsement from some of the most eminent scholars, including Professors Chen Ning Yang and Shing-Tung Yau. NCTS is now located on the campus of the National Taiwan University, Taipei, with National Taiwan University acting the host. NCTS is committed to contributing to the advancement of frontier research, empowering talented students\postdoctoral researchers and young scholars, networking the local researchers with other scholars and preeminent institutions in the world.

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.
