Beijing Kein Research Center for Natural Sciences holds different themes and levels of computational chemistry related workshops every year, mainly for graduate students and young teachers, the aim is to improve the overall ability of scientific research. The workshops properly charge a small fee, with board and lodging excluded. Invitations and invoices can be provided. If you would like to participate, please pay close attention to home page of this website for the latest information. If you have any questions about the workshops, suggestions or you want to be the sponsor of our workshops, please feel free to contact us via keinsci[at]sina.com.

 

  1. Beijing Kein Elementary Quantum Chemistry Workshop
  2. Speaker: Tian Lu  Qinxue Chen

    Duration: 4 days

    This workshop is fully oriented to quantum chemistry newbies, or the researchers who have used quantum chemistry codes but unable to properly carry out most basic calculation tasks. The training will use the most understandable language and wealth of practical instances to help the participants to master elementary quantum chemistry theories and usage of popular quantum chemistry packages. If the participants then attend our basic quantum chemistry workshop after attending the elementary workshop, they will consolidate what they have learned before and master much more theoretical knowledges and computational skills, so that they can study broader range of problems.

  3. Beijing Kein Basic Quantum Chemistry Workshop
  4. Speaker: Tian Lu  Qinxue Chen

    Duration: 6 days


    This workshop is specific for graduate students and young teachers who are working in quantum chemistry studies. The training will systematically introduce and explain commonly involved and extensive concepts, theories and jargons in quantum chemistry, and will lead the participants to operate quantum chemistry programs on computer, so that they can master basic research process of various kinds of problems, deepening the understanding of the theoretical approaches and be able to conduct actual research work immediately.

  5. Advanced Quantum Chemistry Workshop
  6. Speaker: Tian Lu

    Duration: 4 days

    This workshop involves deeper and broader contents than the Basic Quantum Chemistry Workshop, and is suitable for the graduate students and young teachers who already have rich experiences in theoretical chemistry and want to learn more in-depth knowledges and master high-level computational skills. The training will introduce ideas, details and realization of various classical and newly developed theoretical methods. The training will not only describe theories, but also closely combine them with practical applications, so that the participants will be able to capture the characteristics and practical values of different methods.

  7. Wavefunction Analysis and Multiwfn Workshop
  8. Speaker: Tian Lu (Project leader of Multiwfn program)

    Duration: 4 days

    The first annoucement (in Chinese)

    Successfully finished! (in Chinese)

    Wavefunction analysis is a kind of most important theory in quantum chemistry to study practical systems, and Multiwfn is the best tool to realize wavefunction analysis. In this workshop, all kinds of wavefunction analysis theories will be detailedly introduced, and the use of Multiwfn program will be illustrated via abundant instances. The participants will substantially feel the charm of wavefunction analysis and deeply understand its great value in studying comprehensive practical problems.

  9. Molecular Dynamics and GROMACS Workshop
  10. Speaker: Tian Lu

    Duration: 4 days

    This workshop faces to the beginners in molecular dynamics studies, will teach basic ideas, main concepts and commonly used methods in molecular dynamics simulation. GROMACS is one of the most outstanding and the most widely used molecular dynamics program, this workshop will carefully introduce the basic usage of GROMACS, and guide the participants to utilize GROMACS to simulate various types of systems; in the process how to build the model, how to write the input file and how to analyze and interpret the data and trajectory will be illustrated in detail. After attending this training the participants will have enough ability to start to study practical problems immediately.
