TREX High Performance Software Solutions for Quantum Mechanical Simulations at the Exascale

8 February 2023  |   15:00-16:30 CET


The TREX Center of Excellence gathers European scientists, HPC stakeholders, and companies working on quantum chemistry and condensed matter simulations in the framework of stochastic QMC methods to develop and disseminate these unique computational tools for new materials design and the understanding of the fundamental properties of matter. The QMC family of methods is likely to play a major role in this redesign effort. Leading QMC developers must be brought together with mainstream computational scientists and high-performance computing (HPC) experts to deliver such advances to the research community.

This webinar will guide participants through the TREX six different quantum chemistry codes, and the open-source libraries optimised for upcoming Exascale systems, ready to be integrated into quantum chemical codes which thus could benefit from the Exascale transition.

Target Audience

  • QMC community and current and potential users of QMC codes

Thank you to our over 50 live participants and speakers of the first TREX webinar.

The speakers' presentations are now available on Zenodo.
