Summer Program

The first Joint Summer School in Computational Chemistry was held at Heidelberg University in Germany July 6-11. Organized by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame and the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing at Heidelberg University, the six day program provided the opportunity for students who primarily work on experimental research to combine their studies with theory-based approaches, in particular with electronic-structure-based computational chemistry.

Twenty seven 27 Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows were in attendance and represented the two host universities, Kyoto University in Japan, and Shenzhen University in China. Courses were taught by faculty from both universities, including Olaf Wiest and John Parkhill of Notre Dame. Half of the coursework was devoted to the theory behind computational chemistry and the other half focused on application of those theories through exercises, tutorials, and mini-research projects.
