Workshop Details
Many-Body Interactions: From Quantum Mechanics to Force Fields (Virtual participation)
06/06/2022 - 06/10/2022
Meeting Description:

This workshop was supported in part by the Center from Simulation and Modeling, Univ. of Pittsburgh (

Simulations of complex materials and chemical and biological systems requires the use of model potentials (force fields). As a consequence, the results of the simulations are "only as good as the force field employed." In principle, high-level electronic structure calculations on appropriate model systems can provide the information needed for generating accurate force fields. This workshop brings together researchers with expertise in force field development and those with expertise in electronic structure methods.


We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
