The 27th Annual Workshop on Recent Developments in Electronic Structure Theory

ES2015 Workshop

Developments in electronic structure theory and excited states beyond ground state DFT

University of Washington, Seattle WA 
June 21-24, 2015

Co-organizers: J. J. Rehr, G. Bertsch and A. Andreev

The Annual Workshop on Recent Developments in Electronic Structure Theory will be held on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle, WA in June 2015. This Workshop is a continuation of a series (see ) initiated in 1989 by David M. Ceperley and Richard M. Martin. The Workshop will bring together researchers in electronic structure theory from universities, colleges, institutes and laboratories around the world. A major theme of the 2015 Workshop will be on developments in electronic structure theory and excited states beyond ground state DFT. Invited and contributed presentations and posters will present breakthroughs in algorithms and computational methods as well as their applications to systems of current interest. This Workshop represents an important opportunity for students, postdocs, and senior scientists alike in this field.
