Deputy directory of the Hylleraas Centre, Kenneth Ruud, was recently elected as the new vice president and leader of the Natural Sciences Division of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters for the period 2020-2022.
July 11-17 2019, the Hylleraas Centre organised the 10th Congress of the International Society of Theoretical Chemical Physics in Tromsø. With 545 registered participants, it was one of the largest conferences in this conference series.
The Oslo nodes premises at the Department of Chemisrtry have been renovated and the group has moved back in.
The research of the Hylleraas members Abril C. Castro, Michele Cascella, Michal Repisky and Trygve Helgaker, and former Hylleraas members Heike Fliegl and Stanislav Komorovsky, is featured on the back-cover of the 21 June edition of the Dalton Transaction Journal.
The ITN project CO2PERATE involves 6 European countries and will hire 15 PhD students, 3 at the Hylleraas centre.
Hylleraas features two computational speakers at the 23rd European Conference on Organometallic Chemistry (EuCOMC XXIII).
A working group appointed by NTNU, UiB, UiO and UiT has proposed a new model for the future funding of Norwegian e-infrastructure.
Hylleraas co-director Kenneth Ruud appointed as member of the Research and Innovation Advisory Group of EuroHPC.
The 2019 Annual Hylleraas meeting was held May 13-15 2019 at Haraldvollen.
Hylleraas members Marius Kadek, Michal Repisky, and Kenneth Ruud published an article in Physical Review B (PRB) entitled "All-electron fully relativistic Kohn-Sham theory for solids based on the Dirac-Coulomb Hamiltonian and Gaussian-type functions". This paper has been selected by the editors of PRB to be an Editors' Suggestion, that formally lists a small number of PRB papers that the editors and referees find of particular interest, importance, or clarity. Congratulation!
