DL_SOFTWARE Training Workshop

Event Details

The aim of this workshop is to provide training in DL_Software  packages. This Workshop will provide courses to all software packages: DL_POLY, DL_FIELD, DL_MESO, DL_CGMAP, DL_MONTE, DL_AKMC and CHEMSHELL.

We have also invited T. Youngs to present ATEN, a GUI atomic editor and analyser for DL_POLY. 

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.
