Amsterdam Modeling Suite workshops

Hands-on computational chemistry + HPC with SURF

On 10 February SURF will host (registration page) a hands-on Amsterdam Modeling Suite workshop. We will start in the morning with running small jobs on your local laptop and desktop before we will learn how (and when not!) to leverage SURF’s high-performance computing facilities. Remco Havenith will discuss and demonstrate a real-life case study of running (TD)DFT calculations with ADF on SURF’s supercomputers.

Hands-on computational chemistry workshop for TU Delft

On 21 + 22 January 2021, there will be a hands-on online workshop for all students and employees of the TU Delft. The SCM team will introduce all the modules and basic calculations and analysis on the first day, followed by more advanced application cases on the second day.
