Overview

This workshop series brings together participants in electronic structure theory from around the world, in particular from the US. The presentations describe new methods for computing previously inaccessible properties, breakthroughs in computational efficiency and accuracy, and novel applications of these approaches to the study of molecules, liquids, and solids.

The program will consist of invited oral presentations and contributed posters describing new methods for computing previously inaccessible properties, breakthroughs in computational efficiency and accuracy, and novel applications of these approaches to the study of molecules, liquids, and solids.
