Workshop Details
New Frontiers in Electron Correlation
06/12/2021 - 06/16/2021
Meeting Description:

Electronic structure has multiple branches, some of them over the years became established "gold standards" while others are emerging and developing rapidly. However, each of these branches faces some challenges that if overcame could lead to new exciting areas of applications. The aim of this workshop is to identify these "frontiers of electronic structure" and by collective brain storming help reaching them and extending the applicability of both established and emerging methods.

How will electronic structure evolve in next years? What new challenges should we attempt to tackle to successively grow as a field? How can we collectively design and implement novel theories while educating future generations of theorists working on these new problems? Which problems are currently almost within reach?

Notes:

IMPORTANT: Participants should note that the workshop runs Saturday through Wednesday. Because of the Bluegrass Festival that starts on Thursday (17th), discounted lodging rates are not available on Wednesday night. If your flight is on Thursday out of Montrose, we recommend having dinner in Telluride on Wednesday night and taking Telluride Express to Montrose after dinner. TSRC scientists are eligible for the corporate rate ($119 + tax) at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport. The Holiday Inn Express is also a good option too although we do not have a discount with them.


THIS WORKSHOP IS INVITATION ONLY. We plan to assemble a diverse group of theorists featuring both starting and established researchers that represent multiple branches of electronic structure and related fields such as materials science, computational biology, and condensed matter to discuss these issues. This workshop is by invitation only.

The relaxed Telluride environment will be ideal for the workshop participants to actively involve into charting a new road map for electronic structure that can benefit our whole field in the future.

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, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
