Report from the AiiDA coding week – Dec 2021
- 14 December 2021
Last week (6-10 Dec 2021) we had a coding week for AiiDA, in Leysin. About 10 people participated on-site and a few people participated online. Not only do had active participation by core AiiDA developers, but also by other developers who were interested in contributing to the platform. In addition, members from the Swiss supercomputing centre CSCS were present, and an outstanding presentation was contributed from Microsoft, introducing their use and extensions to the AiiDA ecosystem.
Report on the 2021 AiiDA virtual tutorial
- 17 August 2021
Last month we held our annual AiiDA’s introductory tutorial (from the 5th to the 9th of July 2021), an event in which the AiiDA developers teach students and researchers from the field of computational materials science how to get started with running and writing reproducible workflows with our code. This year the event lasted for 5 days and was organized in a fully virtual format, which allowed us to support over 100 participant from 30 different countries around the world!
Report on the 2020 AiiDA virtual tutorial
- 22 July 2020
Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s edition of the AiiDA tutorial was organised in an entirely virtual format, which gave us the opportunity to expand our admittance to a truly global audience. In total, we accepted 85 participants from 30 countries and 13 different time zones. Incorporating this wide range of time zones presented an interesting challenge, and so we decided to split participants into two groups, running duplicate hands-on sessions for each group at different times of the day.

Report on AiiDA tutorial: 24-25 January 2017 at ICTP in Trieste, Italy.
- 27 January 2017
The end of January of 2017 saw the eighth hands-on tutorial for AiiDA within the “Advanced Workshop on High-Performance & High-Throughput Materials Simulations using Quantum ESPRESSO” organised at and by ICTP in Trieste. The tutorial was kicked off by an introductory lecture by Giovanni Pizzi (EPFL), explaining the philosophy and architecture behind AiiDA, and how the ADES model facilitates and simplifies performing and sharing calculations, under the umbrella of complete data provenance. After the scene was set, the approximately 75 participants went to their workstations to start with the first of the hands-on sessions. A completely configured virtual machine was provided for each individual participant, to which they only had to login and they were on their way. The first session served to familiarize the users with Verdi, a command line interface which acts as the user’s tool to interact with AiiDA. With the tools in hand to put AiiDA to good use, the participants learned by example how a Quantum Espresso calculation can be easily launched as AiiDA takes care of a lot of the repetitive work behind the scenes.
