Multi-Scale Quantum Mechanical Analysis of Condensed Phase Systems: Methods and Applications
07/27/2020 - 07/31/2020
Meeting Description:

Synopsis: Multi-scale quantum mechanical methods are instrumental to the analysis of condensed phase studies, especially those with strong connections to experimental efforts. These research areas generally span a wide range of energies, from covalent and metallic bonding to dispersion interactions, and can involve reactive events and/or electronically excited states. A number of state-of-the-art techniques have emerged in recent years, including linear-scaling quantum mechanical approaches, machine learning approaches for creating density functional tight binding and quantum-based reactive force fields, and a wide variety of coarse-grained models for both soft and hard matter. To help maximize the impact of these novel developments in the physics, chemistry, and materials science communities, we plan to bring together leading developers and practitioners of these methods to identify the grand challenges facing in applying current methods to large-scale condensed phase problems, as well as appropriate benchmarks for novel multi-scale QM methods. We also hope the workshop will foster collaborations that help tackle these challenges and lead to the next generation of multi-scale QM methods that are generally applicable to a broad range of chemical, materials, and biological problems.

We believe the scope of this workshop provides excellent synergy with the workshop entitled “Machine Learning and Informatics for Chemistry and Materials” (Olexandr Isvayev et al.) which is being held simultaneously.

Notes:

The registration fee includes breakfast on each workshop day. There is also a catered picnic on Wednesday night.

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.

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. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop.

Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends.Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at https://www.telluridescience.org/travel/families. Please contact Cindy Fusting at cindy@telluridescience.org for more information.
