Thank you for your interest in attending the QMCPACK Workshop scheduled for May 12-15 at Argonne National Laboratory. I regret to inform you that the QMCPACK Workshop is being postponed to later this year or early 2021 due to the COVID-19/coronavirus outbreak. 

The action to postpone is being taken to protect the health of all workshop attendees, and the well being of our entire community.

We invite you visit our website qmcpack.org for updates about  the workshop.

We apologize for this disruption to your plans. Thank you for your understanding.


Dr. Paul Kent, ORNL

Dr. Anouar Benali, ANL

This 3.5-day workshop is intended for current users, developers and potential future users of the QMCPACK Quantum Monte Carlo code. QMC methods are among the most accurate electronic structure methods, providing an important computational tool for performing many-body calculations for a broad range of electronic systems, from weakly bound molecules to strongly correlated solids.

The workshop will consist of full days on the 12th-14th and a half day on Friday 15th.

For greatest benefit, attendees should have some familiarity with electronic structure and/or quantum chemical methods, and their implementation in packages such as Quantum Espresso, Qbox, GAMESS, PySCF, or Quantum Package.

Each attendee will be provided with a cloud computing instance to run calculations.

Attendees are particularly encouraged to bring their own research problems to discuss with the QMCPACK developers and to setup during the laboratory sessions.

Poster presentations detailing current research and possible applications of QMC are encouraged.

Support for the cost of accommodations is available. Preference will be given to students, postdocs, and potential new users. Requests can be made on the registration form. Attendees are responsible for travel, a $50 registration, and evening meals. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

This second annual workshop is the successor to the workshop held in Oak Ridge in May 2019. Materials and recorded talks from that workshop are available here.

After applying, please wait for confirmation before making travel arrangements. Confirmations will be given on an ongoing basis.
