Computational Chemistry for Chemistry Educators Workshop
July 24-30, 2011—Lexington, Virginia
The National Computational Science Institute is offering a week-long summer workshop entitled Computational Chemistry for Chemical Educators. This workshop emphasizes molecular modeling and other web-based and commercial software important for incorporating computational chemistry into the undergraduate curriculum. No previous experience with molecular modeling is required. Preference will be given to faculty who expect to use the workshop content in their own teaching, although historically a limited number of others (students, staff, etc.) have been accepted. Formation of a small team of participants from the same school or nearby schools is highly recommended. A detailed description of the topics to be covered can be found by visiting http://www.computationalscience.org/ccce/.

Go Green With E-Learning at SDSC
For remote users who wish to save time, expense, and gasoline, e-learning via online tutorials and workshops offers a self-paced alternative to traditional workshop attendance. SDSC training classes are oriented towards experienced computer users who have scientific programming experience. We especially encourage users to become familiar with high-level programming languages, such as Fortran 90, C or C++, on UNIX platforms.
