Quantum Monte Carlo in the Apuan Alps IV
Venue: Towler Institute
|Event Date/Time: Nov 01, 2007|
Continuing the series of alternative and very informal meetings at this
venue, the Cambridge University Theory of Condensed Matter group is
organizing a fourth International Workshop to discuss the development and
application of the continuum quantum Monte Carlo method in condensed
matter physics and quantum chemistry. The conference will take place in our
16th Century monastery in the mediaeval high mountain village of Vallico
Sotto (in the Tuscan Apuan Alps near the beautiful Italian city of Lucca).
The normal format for these events involves formal presentations being
restricted to the mornings, with the afternoons left free for relaxed
discussion and participation in fun activities. For the young and
vigorous, we organize mountain walks, caving and other healthy outdoor
exercise, whilst the unfit and elderly might enjoy artistic tours, city
visits and spa treatments, with all participants reuniting in the evening
for excellent Tuscan dinners in local restaurants. The monastery is a
unique venue where the community spirit and magnificent location have
inspired memorable meetings in the past.
This year's workshop will involve up to 35 people, all accommodated on
site. Given the limited space most speakers will be specifically invited,
but anyone who feels that they have something to contribute and who wishes
to attend the event is most welcome to contact the organizers for further details. There is no charge either for
attendance at the conference or accommodation.
