In the last two decades, advancements in renormalization group methods and few-body
techniques have motivated corresponding improvements in shell model techniques. The
future of the shell model, as an example of configuration interaction techniques that
solve the Schrodinger equation exactly in a reduced model space, relates to the
improvement of effective interactions, moving away from empiricism towards
microscopic derivations from NN and NNN potentials. Additionally, the treatment of
exotic nuclei outside of standard model spaces is of primary importance in order for
theoretical methods to produce predictive results during the next generation of
experimental facilities.
