New horizons in atomistic simulation

Bar Convent, York, 4 January 2019

This annual one-day network meeting, sponsored by N8, CCP5, CCP9 and UKCP, will be held at the Bar Convent in York on Friday, January 4th 2019. This meeting will consist of invited and contributed talks, and a poster session. This year there will be three invited speakers who will introduce the three main topic areas chosen for this meeting:

Magnetic/electrical properties: Dr Richard Evans (University of York)
Transport properties: Dr Paul Bristowe (University of Cambridge)
Structural properties: Prof Keith Refson (Royal Holloway, University of London)

Although these topics are the main focus of the meeting, contributions from any area of atomistic simulation are welcome. In this event, you will meet with leading researchers working with quantum / atomistic simulations from across the UK. Begin the New Year with a simulation! We look forward to meeting you in York next January.
