The NeGI Calls for application for Nordic Graduate Education Courses

The Nordic eScience Globalisation Initiative (NeGI) within NordForsk invites applications for funding of Nordic PhD education courses in the areas within eScience Tools and Techniques. The courses should foster aspects of collaborative research including both development of new eScience methods and tools as well as the use of such tools for problems in science and technology.

Projects leaders at universities and other institutions engaged in PhD education in one of the NeGI co-funding countries, i.e. Finland, Norway and Sweden, are eligible to apply. Maximum applied amount is NOK 600 000.

See the call page.

Scientific Visualisation Workshop 2014

Scientific Visualisation Workshop 2014

Organised by SeSE and SNIC-UPPMAX. Participation is free of charge. No previous knowledge of Python or VTK (The Visualization Toolkit) is required.

You will learn how to make 3D visualisations using Python. The basics of Python and VTK will be covered the first day. You will get hands on exercises in both Python and VTK, which is the Visualization Toolkit that we use for making both simple and advanced visualisations. This year we have a focus on stereo, so you will get some presentations about stereo visualisations in our 3D lab: 3DIS4U (Room 2115, house 2, Polacksbacken, Uppsala)

Winter School in Multiscale Modeling


Swedish  e‐Science  Education
Winter  School  in  Multiscale  Modeling
December  1‐12  2014

Multiscale simulations in modern chemical, biological and materials sciences are widespread and in many areas of research are considered to be an essential tool for a microscopic understanding of physical phenomena behind experimental observations. The biannual winter school on multiscale modeling will bring together world leading researchers and graduate students to present, discuss and solve problems in various areas of research involving multiple scales. This year’s program is focused on ab initio correlated, empirical valence bond theory, quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics, and coarse grain molecular dynamics methods and their applications in biochemistry and catalysis.

Invited  Teachers:

Prof.  dr.  Frank  Neese
Director  of  the  MPI  for  Chemical
Energy  Conversion
Mülheim  an  der  Ruhr,  Germany
Prof.  dr.  Jeremy  Harvey
Katholieke  Universiteit  Leuven
Leuven,  Belgium
Prof.  dr.  Siewert‐Jan  Marrink
University  of  Groningen
Groningen,  Netherlands
Dr.  Lynn  Kamerlin
Uppsala  University
Uppsala,  Sweden

Registration: The school is open for all PhD students in Chemistry, Physics, Numerical Analysis, and Computational Science. To   register please visit the winter school website http://sese.nu/multiscale-2014/.

Registration  deadline    –  November 15  2014.
