Minnesota Workshop on ab Initio Modeling in Solid State Chemistry with CRYSTAL

par Secretaire - 23 février 2017

Dear Colleagues,

The Minnesota Chemical Theory Center and the Theoretical Chemistry Group of the University of Torino announce the Minnesota Workshop on ab Initio Modeling in Solid State Chemistry with CRYSTAL, to be held in Minneapolis, MN (USA) from Sunday, July 9th through Friday, July 14th 2017.

Ab initio modeling has become of ever-increasing interest in solid state chemistry, physics, and materials science. Software for the quantum-mechanical study of a large variety of solid properties (structural, electronic, spectroscopic, thermodynamic, optical, elastic, piezoelectric, etc.) is now widely available to a rapidly growing community of specialists (theoretical and computational chemists and physicists), as well as non-specialists (materials scientists, crystallographers, geologists, solid state physicists and chemists, etc.).

The Minneapolis edition of the MSSC2017 School will provide the necessary formal background to understand the main theoretical methodologies and approximations underpinning modern ab initio solid state computational tools and it will also provide practical guidelines for the actual use of standard and advanced features of CRYSTAL.

The School will also present CRYSTAL17, the newest version of the program, to be released in 2017, with all of its new features and capabilities.

Registration is open, and runs through May 2, 2017. Participation is restricted to 40 attendees, accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

The list of lecturers, registration details and general information can be found at the official School web site : www.crystal.unito.it/mw-mssc17

Looking forward to meeting you in Minneapolis.

Sincere regards.

MSSC2016 School Directors Lorenzo Maschio, Laura Gagliardi
