This is a recurring workshop devoted to multi-scale atomistic simulation methods for condensed phase studies, with some emphasis on those involving (but not limited to) Density Functional Tight Binding and machine learning approaches. Multi-scale simulations can generally span a wide range of energies, from covalent and metallic bonding to dispersion interactions, and can involve reactive events and/or electronically excited states. To help maximize state-of-the-art developments, we plan to bring together leading developers and practitioners of these methods in order to identify current grand challenges for condensed phase problems as well as appropriate benchmarks for novel approaches. Our hope is that the workshop will foster collaborations that help tackle these challenges and lead to the next generation of multi-scale, QM-based methods that are applicable to a broad range of chemical, materials, and biological problems.
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.
IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Tuesday through Saturday. Festival lodging rates will be in effect on the night of Sunday, July 10th. Discounted lodging rates start on Monday, July 11th. If you are planning to arrive on Sunday you can stay at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport and come up to Telluride first thing on Monday. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.
