The Programme will start at 10.00 with Welcome addresses
and will finish on Friday, 7 July at approximately 12.30
============================================================

The aim of this interdisciplinary Workshop is to gather together physicists and chemists who employ path-integral simulations on different systems, ranging from chemical and biochemical compounds, to quantum fluids/solids, to ultracold gases. The goal is to create the platform for exchanging knowledge on path-integral technology and on other approaches to the combined quantum simulation of electrons and nuclei.
 
This Workshop will present the most recent methodological developments and applications to the intriguing quantum phenomena, including, e.g., isotope effects in aqueous systems, quantum fluctuations in enzyme catalysis, superfluid/supersolid transitions, and correlation effects in electronic systems.
 
The programme will include 25 to 30 oral presentations given by invited speakers, a poster session and a flash talk session with short oral contributions.
 
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTED ABSTRACTS:
In the application form, all applicants are invited to submit an Abstract (preferably using the template indicated below) for a poster presentation and for a flash talk (approximately 3 or 4 minutes long) to advertise the content of the poster.
 
GRANTS
A limited number of grants are available to support the travel and living expenses of selected participants, with strong priority given to participants working in a developing country and who are at the early stages of their career. 

We also acknowledge financial support from the Psi-k Network.

There is no registration fee.
