The 56th Sanibel Symposium will be held on February 14th to 19th, 2016

Please mark your calendars!

The 56th Sanibel Symposium will be held February 14-19th, 2016 in St. Simmons Island!


Time to register for the 55th Sanibel meeting!

The Sanibel meeting on quantum chemistry, dynamics, condensed matter physics and their biological applications is once again organized by the University of Florida’s Quantum Theory Project. It will be held from February 15th to February 21st, 2015 on St. Simons Island, GA, at the historic King and Prince Hotel located on the Atlantic Ocean. To commemorate the occasion the ‘double-nickel’ meeting will address five topics of critical future development, and five that are currently making major new contributions to the field.

Plenary sessions will include:

  • “Attosecond spectroscopy and its demands on electronic structure and dynamics“
  • “The development of wavefunction methods for infinite systems”
  • “Non-adiabatic dynamics”
  • “Linear scaling in electronic structure theory”
  • “Novel phenomena for solar energy utilization”

Invited sessions will address:

  • “New Developments in Density Functional Theory”
  • “New Developments in Coupled-cluster Theory”
  • “New Developments in simulations using classical force fields”
  • “New Developments in Quantum Monte Carlo”
  • “Metals and semiconductors in theory and applications”

In addition to poster presentations, the new Sanibel format allows for up to 30- 10 min oral presentations, assigned on a first come basis. Please see the Speaker Instructions webpage for more information.

The meeting will be held at the historic King and Prince Hotel on St. Simons’ Island, GA.  Also, there will be several social events for the attendees and accompanying person. Please make housing arrangements promptly, as we expect a large attendance. Also note that there are several daily flights from Atlanta to Brunswick, GA, which is within a fifteen minute cab ride of the King and Prince Hotel. Alternatively, one can fly to Jacksonville, about an hour away, and arrange the shuttle (see webpage), or rent a car.

All attendees are encouraged to submit papers to the Sanibel Proceedings, published by Molecular Physics. All papers will be peer reviewed. The deadline for submitted papers is April 30, 2015.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Organizers.
