Workshop Details
VIRTUAL WORKSHOP – Many-Body Interactions: From Quantum Mechanics to Force Fields
06/08/2020 - 06/12/2020
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.


STUDENT REGISTRATION ($50) via this link (need to write the name of the workshop in the workshop field):

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. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.

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.

The Virtual Workshop fee of $200 also allows for complimentary access to the Virtual Live Lecture Series.
