The Research Computing Systems (RCS) Group and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Alaska Fairbanks are pleased to announce two workshops in Computational Chemistry. The goals of these workshops are:
- to provide a working understanding of theoretical and computational methods of molecules and their reactivity in the gas- and liquid- phases.
- to introduce existing software for obtaining observable quantities describing such systems.
- to employ High Performance Computing (HPC) with the goal of improving user productivity and minimizing the obstacles typically encountered by new users of such complex systems.
The workshops will cover various ways that computers can be used to enhance and expand the educational and research experience of students, post-docs, and faculty. These introductory level workshops will include both lectures and hands-on exercises using the actual machines.
