WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT Quantum Monte Carlo in the Apuan Alps II ======================================== Sat 22nd July - Sat 29th July 2006 The Towler Institute, via del Collegio, Vallico Sotto, Tuscany, Italy http://www.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/~mdt26/tti/tti.html Following last year's successful informal workshop (detailed report available on the above website) the Cambridge University Theory of Condensed Matter group is organizing a second 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 15th Century Tuscan monastery in the Apuan Alps. The format adopted for these events involves formal presentations being restricted to the mornings, with the afternoons and evenings left free for relaxed discussion whilst participating in mountain walks and other healthy outdoor activities. This year's expanded conference will involve up to 25 people, all accommodated on site. Given the limited space most speakers will be specifically invited, but other people who feel they have something to contribute and wish to attend the event should contact Mike Towler (mdt26 at cam.ac.uk) for further details. Confirmed speakers so far: Richard Needs, Cyrus Umrigar, Lubos Mitas, Alan Aspuru-Guzik, Ian Snook, Paolo Umari, Jeff Grossman, Dario Bressanini, Matthew Foulkes, Andrew Williamson, Neil Drummond, Pablo Lopez Rios, Alexander Badinski, Andrea Ma, Matthew Brown, Idoia de Gurtubay, Nick Hine, Ryo Maezono, John Trail, Graham Spink, Samantha Keil, Mike Towler. QUOTES FROM LAST YEAR'S EVENTS ============================== "It was easily the most enjoyable conference I have ever attended, and in the most beautiful location" "Each of the days in Tuscany was amazingly wonderful, can I ever imagine Italian lovely place without any crowd of Japanese tourists?" [from a Japanese person] "Thank you many times for the terrific time we (and in particular me) had at the TTI. I think that was my summer highlight for this year, and I suppose that it was the perfect atmosphere for our QMC family to grow closer together!!" "Very educational, very relaxing, just great.. Thanks for this memorable week in Tuscany"NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
