MICCoM Computational School 2017

The first MICCoM Summer School on Computational Materials will be taking place at the Research Computing Center (RCC), located on the campus of the University of Chicago, on July 17-19, 2017.

Visit the website.

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/COPSS). 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. Experimentalists are welcome!

Registration is now open. Deadline: April 15, 2017.

Please share this information with your colleagues and plan to participate in this exciting event. Contact Clotilde Lethiec ( with any questions.
