CCL: Numerical Methods for Quantum Chemistry (NMQC), Troms: 11-15 jan 2015



 Sent to CCL by: "Luca  Frediani" [luca.frediani/./uit.no]
 Dear Collegues,
 this is a reminder that subscriptions for NMQC are currently open. You can
 subscribe online here:

 The conference focus is on real-space numerical methods applied to quantum
 chemistry.
 The venue will mainly take place on the MS Midnatsol ship fro Tromsoe to
 Kirkenes and back: the number of spots available is therefore strictly limited
 to 50 on a first-come first-served basis.
 Registration deadline: October 31st.
 With kind regards,
 Luca Frediani
 ============from the conference website=======================
 Traditional quantum chemical methods are being pushed to the limit of their
 capabilities due to the growing focus on high accuracy and large non-periodic
 systems. The need for innovative approaches is now manifest.
 Real-space numerical methods are a promising alternative: they are
 mathematically robust, very accurate and well suited for modern, massively
 parallel computing resources. However, they are still not a mainstream
 activity in quantum chemistry: their current computational overhead, their
 memory footprint and the lack of widely available software with standard
 features are among the challenges that need to be overcome.
 The goal of NMQC is to gather interdisciplinary scientific expertise to
 promote a fruitful exchange of ideas and spur progress in the development of
 this field.
