Quloud Seminar


Material simulation using first-principles electronic structure calculation software "OpenMX"

We are pleased to co-host with RIST (Research Organization for Information Science and Technology) a workshop on "Quloud", a materials computation platform that enables users to use "OpenMX" in a cloud computing environment.
OpenMX is a first-principles electronic structure software that has been developed and applied in various supercomputing projects and research projects in materials science.
Dr. Ozaki, the inventor of OpenMX, will be invited as a special lecturer to discuss the current and future status of OpenMX.

We also invite Ms. Kanako Yoshizawa from RIST as a lecturer to introduce the supercomputer " Fugaku".
This will be followed by a demonstration workshop of "Quloud," a cloud-based materials calculation platform developed by our company.

This is a valuable opportunity to gain knowledge directly from leading experts and to experience the ease of use and computational capabilities of "Quloud". We look forward to your participation. 


The progress time is an estimate and is subject to change.
