Fréjus, French Riviera. May 26-30 2019


Since 2015 the deMon developers workshop is accompanied by a training session on the deMon2k and deMon-nano programs.

the tutorial will take place on the campus of University Paris Saclay, in the south suburb of Paris, more specifically at la “Maison de la Simulation” and the Laboratoire de Chimie Physique in May 2019 from Monday 20th to Saturday 25 th .  

Morning lectures on the most important topics will be given by internationally renowned experts  In the afternoons the participants will put this knowledge into practice during hands-on tutorials and will work on specific projects.

Registration is free. Lunches will be taken in charge by the organization. We also have funding to cover housing expenses of participants. Please contact us.

We are grateful to labex PALM and NEXT for generous fundings, as well as to the Fédération de Chimie Physique Paris Saclay and the Departement of Chemistry of University Paris Saclay
