Frank Neese gives Harry Emmett Gunning Lecture

From January 30 to February 1, the new director at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung, Professor Frank Neese, will give lectures in the frame of the renowned Harry Emmett Gunning Lecture Series at the Canadian University of Alberta. In three public lectures, Frank Neese will speak about his research work in the fields of Spectroscopy and Quantum Chemistry. He will also center on methods and perspectives for the calculation of large systems.

The “Gunning Lectures” were established in 1983 in honour of Professor Harry Emmett Gunning (1916-20102) former Chair of the Chemistry Department (1957-1974) and University President (1974-1979). This series of lectures in Physical Chemistry is given each year by an invited guest. Among the speakers of the past decades are several Nobel Prize winners.
