Continuing the tradition of alternative and very informal meetings at this
venue, the Cambridge University Theory of Condensed Matter group is
organizing a third International Workshop to discuss the development and
application of the continuum quantum Monte Carlo method in condensed matter
physics and quantum chemistry. The conference will take place in our 16th
Century monastery in the high mountain village of Vallico Sotto (in the
Tuscan Apuan Alps near the beautiful Italian city of Lucca). The normal
format for these events involves formal presentations being restricted to
the mornings, with the afternoons and evenings left free for relaxed
discussion whilst participating in mountain walks and other healthy outdoor
activities.

This year's conference will involve up to 30 people, all accommodated on
site. Given the limited space most speakers will be specifically invited,
but anybody who feels they have something to contribute and wishes to
attend the event is very welcome to contact Mike Towler (mdt26 at
cam.ac.uk) for further details.

Confirmed speakers : Richard Needs, Lubos Mitas, Neil Drummond, Pablo Lopez
Rios, Alexander Badinski, Mike Towler, Matthew Foulkes

A PRELIMINARY PROGRAM, AND DETAILS AND PHOTOS FROM PREVIOUS WORKSHOPS

TTI CURRENTLY TAKING BOOKINGS FOR THE HOSTING OF CONFERENCES, SCHOOLS AND
GROUP MEETINGS IN EASTER/SUMMER 2007. Enquiries to mdt26 at cam.ac.uk .

PS: Following suggestions from previous guests, the monastery's chapel
will this year be the venue for a new venture : the 'TTI amateur evening
concerts'. Participants with musical skills are encouraged to 'dust off
their instruments' and take part. Anyone willing to donate a grand piano
so that rising opera star Antonio Badinski can be properly accompanied
please contact the management, as should anyone with ideas about how to
get it up the mountain.
