Update: The summer school is happening now! Here’s the Heidelberg@ND Brochure.

Thanks so much to all of our speakers. If you have photos from the picnic last night. Email them to john.parkhill@gmail.com so I can post them here.

In the first week of July 2016, the second Heidelberg-ND computational chemistry summer school will be held at Notre Dame. This summer school aims to provide practical expertise in computational chemistry methods for roughly 20 Notre Dame students (graduate and advanced undergraduate), and ten visitors from Heidelberg and/or Kyoto. The five-day program includes morning lectures and afternoon practical tutorials hands-on with software.

Topics will include: 

  • Computational Organic and Organometallic chemistry
  • Foundations of Statistical Mechanics
  • Force-Field and ab-initio models of molecular structure
  • Drug design
  • Surveys of applications to materials and biological systems
  • An experimental perspective of applied computation

Students will learn to apply state-of-the art simulation methods to their own research. Visitors will be housed on-campus.  A detailed schedule is given below:

Students interested in participating should contact one of the local organizers (John Parkhill or Olaf Wiest)
