Workshop on Recent Developments in Electronic Structure Methods

Index of Invited Talks and Posters (1989-2016)

Purpose of this archive

To preserve the history of the Workshop on Electronic Structure Methods, the Materials Computation Center has collected and indexed available materials, both printed and electronic. An archive such as this offers a unique view of the scientific trends and people involved in this area of research since 1989.

To generate these entries, we performed optical-character recognition on scanned archives, where electronic archives were unavailable. Next steps are additional proofreading, cross-linking to enable search by different fields, and completing the archive.


The archive contains each presenter's name, affiliation at the time of the workshop, title of their presentation, and hyperlinks to abstracts and talk slides (when available).

Invited Speakers, sorted by year then last name
