The Almlöf-Gropen lecture was established to honour the memory of two central scientists in quantum chemical research in Norway.
The 2022 Almlöf–Gropen lecture will be given by Prof. Clemence Corminboeuf, EPFL, Switzerland on 1st June 2022 as part of a seminar that also features contributions from Sahil Gahlawat and Samiran Sen from the Hylleraas Centre.
We are happy to announce that the 2021Almlöf–Gropen lecture will be given by Prof. Alán Aspuru-Guzik, University of Toronto on 10 September. The title of his lecture is There is no time for science as usual: Materials Acceleration Platforms. This online event also features contributions from Tanner Culpitt and Gabriel Gerez from the Hylleraas Centre.
We are happy to announce that the 2020 Almlöf-Gropen lecture, which had to be postponed due to the ongoing pandemic, will be given by Prof. Leticia Gonzalez, University of Vienna. The title of her lecture is Light and shadows on the quantum simulation of molecular electronic excited states. The event will also feature contributions from Abril C.
