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 before April 15th, 2017. Accommodation will be provided on the campus of the University of Chicago. A limited number of travel grants is available.
