Quloud - Quantum ESPRESSO



Quloud - Quantum ESPRESSO Seminar


QE is an integrated suite of Open-Source computer codes for electronic-structure calculations and materials modeling at the nanoscale.

We are pleased to announce the Quloud Seminar (4th Edition), co-hosted with the Research Organization for Information Science and Technology (RIST).

This seminar will focus on the newly introduced  Quantum ESPRESSO features in Quloud Version 3.0, released on November 1st.

Quantum ESPRESSO is an extensively used open-source first-principles calculation software worldwide. It is pre-installed on the supercomputer 'Fugaku' and is also available on other HPCI supercomputers besides 'Fugaku.'

In the seminar, we are pleased to have Ms. Kanako Yoshizawa from RIST as the lecturer, who will introduce the supercomputer 'Fugaku.'

Additionally, we have invited Professor Emi Minamitani from the Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Center at Osaka University as a special lecturer. She will share research examples on electronic-lattice (phonon) interactions using Quantum ESPRESSO.

Finally, there will be a demonstration of first-principles calculations using Quantum ESPRESSO with the cloud-based material calculation platform 'Quloud' provided by Quemix.

This seminar provides an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge directly from experts. It is also a valuable occasion to get a closer and more tangible experience of material simulation through the Quloud demonstration. Your questions and requests are highly welcome, so we encourage your participation. We welcome inquiries, so please feel free to contact us.


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