The Numerical Modelling and Simulations Workshop held at Old Thorns, Liphook, Hampshire was attended by 29 SEPnet postgraduate researchers. Prof Roger Webb, University of Surrey, delivered a talk on “Materials Modelling – 35 Years of Animation” on Sunday evening which was well received. Day 1 covered first-principles quantum mechanical simulations of electrons and nuclei focussing on the package CASTEP and was delivered by Prof Keith Refson, Royal Holloway, University of London. Day 2 covered molecular dynamics delivered by Dr Kostya Trachenko, Queen Mary University of London and Monte Carlo simulation methods which was delivered by Dr Dave Faux, University of Surrey.
Feedback from students was very positive: “two days was perfect length, course content fantastic, workshop questions very informative and venue was great”!
