CP2K User Tutorial: "Computational Spectroscopy"

On August 27–29, 2018, a 3-day CP2K user tutorial with the topic "Computational Spectroscopy" will be held at the Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²).

Topics covered within these three days include:

  • Gaussian Plane Wave (GPW) and Gaussian Augmented Plane Wave (GAPW) methods
  • Ab-initio Molecular Dynamics (AIMD) & Nuclear Quantum Effects (NQE)
  • NEXAFS, NMR & Vibrational Spectroscopy (IR, Raman, VCD, ROA)
  • Absolutely Localized Molecular Orbitals (ALMO)
  • Implicit Solvent Methods & DFT + U

We invite participants who already arrive on Sunday 26, to a get-together and a tour around the compute facilities of PC² with Prof. Christian Plessl, Chairman and Managing Director of the PC².


Participation in the tutorial is free of charge. Participants will work with their own notebooks, so bringing a notebook to the tutorial is mandatory. All required software is installed on our cluster and can be used by all participants.
