2021 HybriD3 Theory Training Workshop


Speaker(s): Volker Blum (MEMS) and Yosuke Kanai (UNC) and others
This workshop introduces PhD students and other early-career scientists to the theory and practical applications of atomistic modeling techniques in materials science, chemistry, and condensed matter physics, particularly first-principles electronic structure calculations. We will offer a three-day program of lectures and simple hands-on sessions, designed to provide an entry point to the current most important, density-functional theory based simulation approaches in computational molecular and materials science.

The workshop is offered as part of the NSF-DMREF funded "HybriD3" consortium (DMR-1728921/1729297/1729383) in support of the Materials Genome Initiative and the NSF Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation program.

Registration: We ask you to register in advance at our registration page . A Zoom link for the training workshop will be sent out ahead of the workshop. Please indicate whether or not you plan to participate in the hands-on tutorials. Space for participation in the hands-on tutorial sessions will be limited for logistical reasons.
