PASI 2012 - CMS4E

Pan-American Advanced Studies Institute

Computational Material Science for Energy Generation and Conversion


Santiago, Chile - Pontifica Universidad Católica de Chile

January 9-20, 2012 



Thank you to all the participants, speakers, and organizers

that helped make PASI-CMS4E a success!!!

Lectures and Tutorials for the workshop are available on the Schedule Page. 


This workshop will provide young researchers (graduate students, post-docs) from across  the Americas with lectures and hands-on tutorial sessions in computational condensed matter, chemistry, and materials sciences for energy applications.  It will also provide participants with a chance to build international connections and collaborations.

Schedule of Events with lectures and tutorials (html)   

Full support for travel and housing for accepted participants will be provided.  Please note that due to the nature of the program and the terms of our grant, applications can (unfortunately) only be accepted from researchers in the Americas. Registration deadline: Oct. 21, 2011Registration is now closed.

For more information, please email Derek Stewart (derek.stewart@cornell.edu) or Richard Hennig (rhennig@cornell.edu).  Registration information will be available in the near future.
