Midlands Computational Chemistry Meeting 2020 and CP2K tutorial workshop


Due to the coronavirus outbreak, this event has been postponed until later this year. New date to be announced later

The fourth annual Midlands Computational Chemistry Meeting 2020 will be held at the University of Lincoln on Thursday, 16th April. It will be followed by the CP2K tutorial workshop on the 17th April.

Midlands Computational Chemistry Meeting

Following on from the previous meetings, this one-day event is an opportunity to meet other computational chemists in the region and hear about the great work our students and colleagues are doing. We define Midlands as anywhere where you can travel to Lincoln for a day.

The format of the meeting will be invited and contributed presentations, and a poster session over lunch. Preference for contributed oral presentations will be given to postgraduate students, postdocs and recently appointed academics.

We have three invited speakers showcasing a variety of Computational Chemistry research:

  • · Prof. Jamshed Anwar (University of Lancaster) – modelling organic molecular assemblies, soft matter and solutions
  • · Prof. Elena Besley (University of Nottingham) – development of theoretical models and modelling of materials on the nanoscale
  • · Dr. Jonathan Skelton (University of Manchester) – computational materials science and condensed matter

CP2K tutorial workshop

CP2K quantum chemistry software is widely used for atomistic modelling of solid state, liquid, molecular and biological systems. The one-day workshop will be aimed at new and intermediate-level users of CP2K, to learn about current developments and to practice hands-on exercises with guidance from experienced users.


To register, please fill the form.

You can register either for the Midlands Computational Chemistry Meeting or for the CP2K workshop, or for both events.
Registration is free, thanks to the generous support of the Royal Society of Chemistry Faraday Division and the Institute of Physics Computational Physics Group.
Abstract submission closes on the 20th March 2020. Registration closes on the 3rd April 2020.
