Continuing the series of alternative and very informal meetings at this
venue, the Cambridge University Theory of Condensed Matter group is
organizing a sixth 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 mediaeval 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 left free for relaxed
discussion and participation in activities. For the young and vigorous, we
organize mountain walks, caving and other healthy outdoor exercise, whilst
the unfit and elderly might enjoy artistic tours, city visits, and gentle
country strolls, with all participants reuniting in the evening for
excellent Tuscan dinners in local restaurants. The monastery is a unique
venue where the community spirit and magnificent location have inspired
memorable meetings in the past.

This year's workshop will involve up to 40 people, all accommodated on
site. Many speakers will be specifically invited, but anyone who feels
that they have something to contribute and who wishes to attend the event
is most welcome to contact the organizers (Mike Towler:  mdt26 at
cam.ac.uk) for further details. There is no charge either for attendance
at the conference or accommodation, though donations to cover our costs
are very welcome.
