Workshop Details
Many-Body Interactions: From Quantum Mechanics to Force Fields
07/09/2018 - 07/13/2018
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.


IMPORTANT: Festival lodging rates will go into effect on the night of Friday the 13th. To avoid the rate increase, you should depart on the 13th. If your flight out of Montrose does not leave until Saturday the 14th, TSRC suggests eating dinner in Telluride on the night of the 13th, taking the shuttle to Montrose after dinner, and staying at the Hampton Inn next to the airport. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.

If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.
