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. For more information and registration click here
