DL_Software Training Workshop
STFC, Daresbury Laboratory
Date: 19-22 February 2018
The aim of this 4-day workshop is to provide training in DL_Software packages. This Workshop will provide courses and hands-on session to the following software packages: DL_POLY, DL_FIELD, DL_MESO, DL_MONTE and ChemShell. In addition, ATEN, a GUI atomic editor and analyser for DL_POLY will also be presented.
This is an opportunity for current and potential users of DL_Software to learn how to use these programs and what methodologies and algorithms they include. The workshop also offers demonstrations and hands-on sessions giving users the opportunity to compile, run and experiment with the programs as well as interact with their developers.
Day 1 to Day 3 is the lecture and training sessions for DL_POLY, DL_FIELD, ATEN, ChemShell and DL_MESO.
On Day 2 evening, we will have poster sessions, accompany with wine reception and nibbles. So, please bring along your posters.
Day 4 is the user-led hands on session. On this day, users are given opportunity to seek advice and help in various aspects of computational work that make use of DL_Software. For instance, software modifications, simulation setup and model development, work flow scriptings such as job submissions, etc. Alternatively, this day can also be used for continuation of the tutorial hands-on sessions. We will be there for you to ask any questions!
DL_MONTE training will run as parallel sessions on Day 3 and Day 4.
