Computational Electronic Structure of Condensed Matter

CCP9 is the Collaborative Computational Project for the Study of the Electronic Structure of Condensed Matter.

CCP9 provides a network which connects UK research groups in electronic structure, facilitates UK participation in the larger European Psi-k Network and supports a number of cutting edge computational codes. The chairman of CCP9 is Prof. Stewart Clark, University of Durham.

CCP9 Conference & Community meeting 2024

The CCP9 Conference & Community Meeting will be taking place 19-22 March 2024 at the Mercure Chester Abbotts Well Hotel in Chester, UK. The conference will start after lunch on Tuesday 19 March and finish at lunchtime Friday 22 March; there will be a mixture of keynote and contributed talks, posters and CCP9/CoSeC presentations. We particularly encourage younger researchers to contribute talks and posters. CCP9 will fund accommodation at the hotel, lunches, and a conference dinner. Please rememebr to mark the event in your calendar. Further details will be sent out closer to the event.
