Workshop Details
Many-Body Interactions: From Quantum Mechanics to Force Fields
07/07/2008 - 07/11/2008
Meeting Description:

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.


FYI some general info about housing:
TSRC offers a wide range of lodging options. Single bedroom
accommodations with kitchen start at $675/week, and 2- and 3-bedroom condos start at $970 and $1160/week,
respectively. Some condos have 2 beds per bedroom, or also have a loft, which may be a good option for students and postdocs or anyone looking to save money. Condos range from Basic or Value to Luxury depending upon your preferences. TSRC also offers excellent hotel rooms through Camel's Garden Hotel and Ice House, with daily maid-service and other hotel style amenities.

If you wish to share a condo with one or more other TSRC participants, you should work this out in advance of registering. In particular, one person should be designated as the head roommate. The person chosen head
roommate must register first as the head roommate. Then the other roommates register, indicating the name of the head roommate. If you need email addresses of the other invited participants, contact your workshop organizer.
