Computational Materials Science Seminar (CMS)


    The seminar covers both computational methodology and its applications to explain and predict materials. We encourage to present the computational studies for any kind of solid, soft, and liquid materials. If you would like to present your results at our seminar please contact Aksenov Dmitry. The seminar is held on Thursdays, 16:00 at Skoltech, Moscow.
