5th European Charge Density Meeting

in conjunction with DFG 1178 annual meeting

The 5th European Charge Density Meeting (in conjunction with DFG 1178 annual meeting), took place in Gravedona, on the beautiful shores of the Lake of Como (Italy) between 6 and11 June 2008. The conference has been organized by CNR-ISTM Milan, University of Insubria at Como, University of Milan and DFG SPP-1178 .
