The annual Density Functional Days in Tübingen have been established in 2013 and are organized jointly by Joseph Brader (U Fribourg), Roland Roth (U Tübingen) and Martin Oettel (U Tübingen).

The workshops communicate progress in methods of Classical Density Functional Theory and intend to cover fundamental aspects of the statics and dynamics in homogeneous and inhomogeneous systems as well as selected applications.   

From 2019 on, a regular DFT school is planned, complementing the DFT Days and aimed at younger researchers. The first school (March 2019, Freiburg)  is organized by Andreas Härtel (U Freiburg), more information can be found here .
