Using Materials Science Suite for atomic-scale simulations of polymer chemistry

Schrödinger invites you to a one-day in-person workshop in Mannheim, Germany to gain hands-on training in the use of our Materials Science Suite for simulating polymer chemistry and properties.

Participants will get practical experience and in-person guidance in using our Maestro GUI and the tools involved in building molecules, oligomers, mixtures, and polymers for use in molecular dynamics simulations. Examples of how molecular-scale simulations can inform polymer research and development projects will be included through-out the day.
