Very Accurate and Large Computations and Applications 2013

Celebrating the scientific career and achievements of Prof. Trygve Helgaker on the occasion of his 60th birthday.

Strand Hotel Fevik

The organization committee of VALCA 2013 welcomes you to participate in the international conference "Very Accurate and Large Computations and Applications", which will be organized from June 9-June 12 2013 at Strand Hotel Fevik, about half an hours drive from the Norwegian city and airport of Kristiansand.

The conference will highlight the most recent advances in the development and application both accurate quantum chemistry methodology, as well as methods aimed as tackling large and complex systems at the ab initio level. The meeting is organized as a sattelite meeting to the 7th "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" conference in Lugano (Switzerland) June 2-7, and will also constitute the annual meeting of the Division of Computational Chemistry of the Norwegian Chemical Society. In addition, the conference will celebrate the many scientific achievements of Prof. Trygve Helgaker, who celebrates his 60th birthday in August 2013.

Some of the invited speakers will be prominent international scientists who are close friends and colleagues of Prof. Helgaker. In addition, outstanding international scientists will present their most recent developments. Together with poster presentations, VALCA 2013 will provide an up-to-date overview over important areas of research in molecular quantum chemistry, complementing and extending the scientific overview provided at the MQM 2013.

We invite you to participate in this event and share your most recent scientific advances through poster presentations or oral contributions.

The conference can gather at the most 130 participants and will utilize the entire capacity of Strand Hotel Fevik, beautifully located in the southern-Norwegian archipelago. We look forward to welcoming you to the south of Norway in June 2013.
