In late June / early July of 2011 Dr. Matt Kundrat of SCM will be touring Midwestern USA, giving talks at several locations. In addition to his visits to private industry, Matt will make presentations at a couple of universities. The university events, which are open to the public, are listed below:
Our first stop will be Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. The talk here will begin at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, the 28th of June. The location on the Northwestern University campus is: Room 4003 Ryan Hall, 2190 Campus Drive, Evanston, IL 60208.
The next public presentation will be at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The lecture will take place in room CHEM 1200 of the chemistry building at 4 PM on Thursday, the 30th of June.
The final university lecture of this tour will be held at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. This presentation will be from 2:30-4:00 PM on Tuesday, July 5th. We will convene then in Room 348 of the Mellon Institute (third floor conference room), located at 4400 5th avenue in Pittsburgh, PA 15213. Guests should use the side entrance from the S Bellefield Ave, not the main entrance from 5th Ave. The presentation room is immediately on the right past the S Bellefield entrance.
The sessions will begin with an overview talk of the ADF program (with an emphasis on recent developments), followed by a talk on the features of our other programs (BAND, COSMO-RS, ReaxFF) and ongoing "Approximate DFT for nanoscale" EU project. These may include a brief demonstration of some new features of the ADF-GUI along with a question and answer session. These lectures are open to the public. If you are interested in ADF or density functional theory modeling in general, feel free to stop by.
