Webinars are a new adventure for CECAM, we hope that you will enjoy experimenting with us on the possibilities offered by this tool to share exciting science with the community. This format offers an interesting opportunity to facilitate access to our activities for a broader community and, while our love of the informal and productive environment of face-to-face meetings is unchanged, we plan to explore its potential as a complementary tool to our workshops and schools. Keep an eye on this page if you are curious about our series and do not hesitate to contact us if you have suggestions or if you plan to submit a webinar proposal (alternative format) in this year CECAM Flagship call.

MDDB webinar series: “MDDB project and MDPosit: a prototype of distributed MD database”

17 May 2024 | 12:00-13:00 CEST
Modesto Orozco & Daniel Beltrán

The Molecular Dynamics Data Bank (MDDB) project is an European-scale repository for biosimulation data, bringing together some of Europe’s leading institutions to transform the handling of molecular dynamics (MD) data and facilitate its sharing within the scientific community. In this webinar session, Modesto Orozco and Daniel Beltrán will introduce the MDDB project and discuss their ongoing efforts to establish a distributed MD database, an approach where different research groups have their own local data repositories while contributing to a global database.

TREX - CECAM WEBINAR: Quantum Monte Carlo HPC Applications in Condensed Matter, Quantum Chemistry and Materials Science

25 January 2024 | 09:30 -12:00 CET

Join us for a deep dive into the cutting edge of quantum materials research and quantum chemistry at the upcoming webinar on "Quantum Monte Carlo HPC Applications in Condensed Matter, Quantum Chemistry, and Materials Science" on January 25, 2024, from 09:30 to 12:00 CET.
