Last month, from 14th to the 18th of September, I attended my first conference. Together with many members of my group I was at the 50th Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry in Vienna. It was a great opportunity to present my work, get feedback on some ideas and get to know the German speaking quantum chemistry community. Most lectures were very interesting and I learned a lot about cutting-edge electronic structure theory.
I myself also presented a poster titled "New approaches towards a finite-element based Hartree-Fock method" (attached below). I was surprised how many people were interested and I pretty much talked continuously for the whole of the poster session. In the end I left Vienna with a bag full of new ideas and with the pleasant feeling that I became part of the science community.
