International Workshop on Recent Developments in Electronic Structure (ES21)

Monday July 12th – Thursday July 15th, 2021 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time(EDT)
Center for Computational Quantum Physics




For over 30 years, the Annual Workshop on Recent Developments in Electronic Structure Methods has brought together participants in electronic structure theory from universities, colleges, institutes and laboratories around the world.

To continue the tradition of this workshop series, the Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) at the Flatiron Institute is pleased to virtually host ES21. In addition to invited talks, the workshop will include poster presentations and small group discussion sessions. We hope this will provide an occasion for the community to gather after a very challenging year, hear about the latest developments, and discuss the future of electronic structure methods.

The workshop is free but registration is required. On the registration form, you will be asked to indicate if you would like to present a poster (submission deadline for poster title is June 21st) and to indicate your preferred topics for the small group discussions.
