The first 27 years of Reverse Monte Carlo Modelling
Budapest, Hungary 17-19 September, 2015


Reverse Monte Carlo (RMC) modelling, a method for modelling structural disorder in liquids, amorphous and crystalline solids, has been around for more than 25 years now.
The first international meeting that had been dedicated to RMC was held in Studsvik (Sweden) in 1994 (organised by Robert McGreevy). 11 years ago (October 2003), we met in Budapest to hold the 2nd RMC Conference. It was there where the participants agreed to hold such meetings every third year.
According to this plan, the 3rd RMC and 4th meetings were held in Hotel Normafa, Budapest (Hungary) late in September in 2006 and early October, 2009, respectively. As the attendees would remember, the meeting in 2012 had to be transferred in the last minute to another venue within Budapest, Holiday Beach Wellness Hotel.
It is therefore timely to hold the next international conference on (all the diverse aspects of) Reverse Monte Carlo modelling.


Registration fees will be kept to the absolute minimum; depending on sponsoration, a maximum of about 100 EUR may have to be asked for. The exact amount will be announced early in 2015. Budapest can be reached quite cheaply by plane, train or car; accommodation + half board (breakfast + lunch) for three days will probably not exceed about 300 EUR.


We believe that the conference will provide an excellent opportunity also for a short family break. The extra cost for a second person in a hotel room would not cost more than about 40 Euros/day (including lunch)! In case there is a need for it, we will try to organise programs for your partners/children.
