Dr. Jacob Gavartin (Materials Science Lead in Europe) presented an overview and applications of the Schrödinger Materials Science Suite, followed by a discussion and hands-on workshop sessions on 23rd January.
The main principles of automation in computational modelling were illustrated: Atomic structure generation, properties calculations, and calculation analysis. In addition, they gave an overview of modelling for the following applications: Organic electronics, thermophysical and mechanical properties of polymers and crystalline surfaces, and interfaces for catalysis and battery research.

It attracted not only computational but also experimental people coming alone to the event.
