The 2014 meeting of the Theoretical Section of the Swedish Chemical Society will be held at the Ångström Laboratory (Uppsala University), 27-29 October 2014. We start at 13.00 on Monday (preceded by a lunch for those who are interested) and end at 12.30 on Wednesday.
The meeting is subtitled “New Horizons”, which refers both to its scientific focus on novel methods and applications, and to the fact that we are encouraging the participation of scientists from the other Nordic countries and further afield. The subtitle also reflects the fact that we are now (slowly) approaching a situation where fairly realistic systems can be modelled fairly accurately, or …? Which bottlenecks and limitations remain?
We define theoretical chemistry in a wide sense, including theoretical and computational chemistry from all fields of chemistry and its interfaces with physics, biology, materials science, and so on. Electronic structure methods, classical and quantum dynamics, analytical force-field methods, property calculation and analysis, and data mining all belong in this meeting, as do combinations of methods and multi-scale modelling.
The meeting will feature keynote lectures by: Roberto Car (Princeton, USA), Martin Head-Gordon (UC Berkeley, USA), Sally Price (UCL, UK), Joost VandeVondele (ETH Zurich, Switzerland). We welcome your contributions, oral as well as poster presentations!The registration fee of 1500 SEK per person will cover the conference material, lunch and buffet dinner on Monday, lunch and conference dinner on Tuesday and coffee breaks throughout the meeting.
The deadline for registration, abstract submission and payment of the registration fee is Friday 26 September.We look forward to welcoming all participants to Uppsala in October!
