Whom to contact in case of further administrative questions?

For all administrative questions concerning VASP licenses, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Is there an official users support?

The license does not include any support or maintenance. However, the code is very well documented and makefiles for most hardware platforms and compilers are provided with the package. We also offer - but only as a courtesy, not as a contractual service - an email hotline service ( This email address is being protected from spambots.

On how many computers may VASP be installed?

There is no restriction concerning the numbers of machines on which VASP can be installed under a particular license. It is the responsibility of the group leader that the copyright of the VASP Software GmbH is fully protected on each of these machines: Any kind of access to vasp must be restricted to those colleagues who are the authorized VASP users of this group.

When is acces to the download portal given?

Access to the download portal is given after

  1. the properly completed and duly signed license agreement has been received. Two originals are required, one will be returned to you after it has been counter-signed by Prof. Georg KRESSE. Please send the documents to

  2. after payment of the full license fee has been received by the VASP Software GmbH.

  3. all colleagues who will use vasp under this particular license have been registered as VASP-users officially. If a colleague leaves the group, he/she has to stop using VASP immediately, unless he/she starts working in another group having a valid license. We request to be kept informed if a colleague leaves or joins the VASP-group.

The passwords are sent to ONE person per group (the group leader) without exception, and must mot be given to anyone else.

How can I get access to VASP?

Access to the download portal is given by sending the passwords to the account from which the software package can be downloaded. You are welcome to check for new sub-releases of the software from time to time, in order to make sure that you use the most up-to-date version.
