Electron Correlation and Molecular Properties

A celebration of Peter Knowles’s 60th birthday

Our friend and colleague Peter Knowles will turn 60 in March 2020. 

Peter is perhaps best known for his work on full configuration interaction, multi-reference methods, and coupled cluster theory; and is also very well-known through his decades of work on the Molpro quantum chemistry package. We plan to honour Peter’s outstanding contributions to theoretical chemistry with a two-day meeting in Cardiff.

The meeting will take place at Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK on Monday and Tuesday 6th and 7th April 2020. Although the formal programme will start on Monday, there will be a reception on the 5th April for anyone who plans to travel to Cardiff on Sunday. We will hold a conference dinner in honour of Peter on Tuesday evening. 

The conference fee is £145 and includes the Welcome Reception, coffee breaks, lunch on both days, food and drinks at a poster session on Monday night, and the conference dinner. 

We have an exciting line-up of 23 invited speakers, promising a stimulating two days of world-class science.
