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

The CCP9 community conference will be a face-to-face meeting taking place 7-9 September 2022 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Manchester, UK. The conference will start after lunch on Wednesday 7 September and finish at lunchtime Friday 9 September; 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 taking place on Thursday 8 September. Deadline for registration is 21 August 2022.
