External Training Event – MICCoM Summer School on Computational Materials
July 17, 2017 - July 19, 2017
The University of Chicago is sponsoring a new summer school in computational physics, which may be of interest to DCOMP members. The first MICCoM Summer School on Computational Materials will be taking place at the Research Computing Center, located on the campus of the University of Chicago, on July 17-19, 2017.
The school will include lectures and hands-on exercises which apply cutting-edge algorithms to simulations of soft and hard materials, utilizing codes developed by the MICCoM center: first principles molecular dynamics (Qbox), GW calculations (WEST), and free energy and reactive path sampling methods (SSAGES/COPPS). In particular, the school will focus on how these codes may be used and coupled in order to compute properties of complex heterogeneous systems and how to validate experimental data. Graduate students in molecular engineering, physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science who are interested in participating are invited to submit their application before April 15, 2017. Accommodation will be provided on the campus of the University of Chicago. A limited number of travel grants is available.
