Quantum and Molecules I (QUEUE I) Summer School
Faculty of Applied Physics and Mathematics of Gdańsk Tech invites international students to the next summer school - Quantum and Molecules I (QUEUE I), organized within the ScienceApp project. The event is held between 26th and 30th of September 2022.
QUEUE I is perfect for all young scientists and students who wish to learn the basics and the advances in quantum ideas and methodologies, along with their practical applications in chemistry, electrochemistry, and material sciences.
Tutorials will be followed by laboratory classes, during which students will learn how to perform quantum-chemical computations. They will have a chance to solve nontrivial computational problems from scratch using a supercomputer and quantum software. In addition, they will learn the multiconfigurational methods - getting the next level of skills in quantum-chemical computations. During laboratory classes, students will visualize molecular structures and the orbitals - the outcome of their computations.
QUEUE I will be run in a hybrid mode (in-person and online). Participation in the summer school is free of charge. Fifteen non-Polish students will be awarded a fellowship to reimburse the costs of the travel and living in Gdańsk. All Participants will receive a diploma certifying acquired skills and learning outcomes, as well as, ECTS credits collected during the training.
Classes will be delivered by Prof Marek Czachor and prof Maciej Bobrowski, who is the chair of the QUEUE I Summer School. In addition, activities related to the history of Gdańsk and its culture will be provided by Prof Justyna Borucka, from the Faculty of Architecture, and the European Solidarity Centre.
ScienceApp project is run within the frame of the SPINNAKER program - Intensive International Curricula, organized by the National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA), financed by the European Union under the Knowledge Education Development Operational Program (Action 3.3. Internationalization of Higher Education). The budget of the project is PLN 726,900.00. ScienceApp aims to attract talented international students and young researchers to Gdańsk Tech.
