Subject: 09.03.19 Workshop on electronic structure calculations in Pittsburgh
Dear colleague,
Q-Chem Inc. would like to invite you to a workshop entitled "Quantum 
leap into the future: advances in methods and applications of electronic 
structure calculations". At the workshop, leaders in academia and industry 
will present new and improved computational methods for a wide range of 
chemical and biological applications. In addition, a hands-on training 
session, a poster session, and dinner will provide ample opportunities 
to meet these experts and learn the basic and advanced features of the 
state-of-the-art computational tools in soon-to-be-released Q-Chem 3.2.
Q-Chem is a leading ab initio electronic structure program, with 
capabilities ranging from the highest performance density functional 
theory/Hartree-Fock (DFT/HF) calculations to high level post-HF 
correlation methods to combined quantum mechanical/classical mechanical
(QM/MM) calculations.  
The two-day workshop will take place on the 19th and 20th of March, 2009, 
in the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center, Pittsburgh, PA. Register by 
January 19th and receive a free one year group license for new customers, 
or a free upgrade for existing customers. Please visit the workshop home
