4 Sep 2018 Sofia - The National Centre for Supercomputing Applications in Sofia, Bulgaria will organize the PRACE Winter School on Computational Chemistry, Biochemistry and Medicinal chemistry - Methods and Tools, November 26-29, 2018.
This school aims to discuss the methodologies, numerical methods and their implementation used by the state-of-the-art codes in the HPC environment. The use of computational - including HPC - methods and tools in the fields of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Materials science, areas in which the academics in Bulgaria have shown visible progress recognized globally, will be demonstrated and exposed.
The attendants will learn the different techniques and their implementation in various codes, as well as will acquire the results that can be attained on the most recent HPC architectures. A particular focus will be the next technological developments and the possibilities that will be opened to chemists, biochemists and material scientists. Conditions for discussion and interaction with lecturers will be provided.
The Winter School will bring the experiences of the UKs Hartree Centre and the STFC Scientific Computing Department to show that knowledge exchange between scientists with different academic experience and between academia and industry is the facilitation process for setting collaborative projects in which academic and industrial interests, experiments, HPC modelling and application development meet to provide drive for one another.
A number of examples where the use of HPC modelling has been essential in solving scientific problems at atomic and molecular level will be present.
A basic introduction and training in some of the HPC applications developed at Daresbury Laboratory, relevant to collaborative projects of both academic and industrial nature will also be provided.
The programme is free of charge - not including travel and accommodation. For the hands-on sessions, participants are expected to bring their own laptops.
Applications are open to researchers, academics and industrial researchers residing in PRACE member countries, and European Union Member States and Associated Countries. All lectures and training sessions will be in English.
