Introduction to QM/MM Computational Chemistry Modeling: The Many Roles of Polarization A Workshop at the University of California, Berkeley, August 3-4, 2015 Quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) methods are a powerful way to model complex chemistry in extended environments, such as in solution or at interfaces. The goal of this workshop is to teach attendees about QM/MM methods, so that they will come away with solid basic knowledge and first-hand experience in applying QM/MM methods. The role of polarization will be particularly emphasized because it is central to QM/MM and connects to state-of-the-art polarizable force fields and current QM/MM developments. The workshop will take place over two full days and will consist of lectures in the mornings and interactive tutorial exercises in the afternoons using QM/MM software to solve practical problems that illustrate key aspects of setting up, running and interpreting these calculations. Attendees are expected to bring their own laptop (Mac, Linux, or Windows). Software will be provided. Attendees can be at any age level or career stage, provided that they have completed upper division undergraduate physical chemistry (or its equivalent), including basic quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. While more experience than the required minimum may be helpful, the workshop is not intended for those already expert in QM/MM. Thanks to generous sponsorship from the National Science Foundation (NSF) there is no registration fee for this workshop. In addition, on-campus housing and meals will be provided for the duration of the workshop. A brief personal statement and resume/CV are required of all prospective attendees. More details on how to apply can be found on the workshop website: https://sites.google.com/site/qmmmbootcamp. Applications will be reviewed until Weds., June 24, 2015 and/or the workshop reaches capacity.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
