This course provides a comprehensive, tutorial-style, hands-on, introductory and intermediate-level treatment of all the essential ingredients for molecular modeling and computational chemistry using modern supercomputers. Standard approaches such as classical and ab initio molecular dynamics, electronic structure models as well as several more special topics are explained and exemplified by prominent researchers in the field. The workshop is a must for graduate students in the field, providing an overview on "what can be calculated and how should it be done", without forgetting the important aspect of network building.

There will be a poster session on Tuesday. The participants get to vote for the best poster and the winner will receive a small prize.

Learning outcome
An overview on common methods in computational chemistry and molecular modelling and to related HPC software packages.

Working knowledge and some work experience from some branch of computational chemistry.
