The workshop will include lectures and hands-on exercises which apply cutting-edge algorithms to simulations of materials for energy and quantum information, utilizing codes developed by the Midwest Integrated Center for Computational Materials (MICCoM): first principles molecular dynamics (Qbox), many-body perturbation theory (WEST), free energy sampling methods (SSAGES), and spin coherence time calculations (PyCCE). In particular, the event 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, postdocs, and researchers who are interested in participating are invited to submit their application before September 30th, 2022.

Agenda

Day 1: October 13, 2022
Finite temperature properties of materials and molecules
Introductory lectures and hands-on tutorials on Qbox, and SSAGES
Day 2: October 14, 2022
Computational spectroscopy
Introductory lectures and hands-on tutorials on WEST, and PyCCE

Please note that participants are expected to bring their own laptop. Argonne National Lab’s LCRC LCRC will provide access to computing clusters.
