What’s New in MedeA® version 2.13?

MedeA 2.13 is of particular value if you are working with thermoset polymers, electron transport, or the latest features of VASP. This new version of MedeA® provides an efficient thermoset PolymerBuilder, new capabilities for the simulation of thermoelectric and electron transport properties, and VASP 5.3.3, which has significant extensions, underlining VASP's position as the world leading first-principles solid-state simulation code. In addition to these major enhancements, we have made broad updates to the MedeA® architecture providing a wide range of improvements to overall functionality, including extensions to docking, and metal simulation using Embedded Atom Methods (EAMs).

Join us in beautiful Langebaan, South Africa on November 11th at the 23rd annual meeting of the Catalysis Society of South Africa (CATSA).

We will be hosting a half-day training workshop will provide and overview of MedeA® methods and workflows for the computational prediction of materials properties and process parameters relevant to catalysis.

The workshop will be hosted by Alexander Mavromaras and Marianna Yiannourakou.

Application examples include:

What’s New in MedeA® version 2.12?

The MedeA 2.12 release represents a major step forward in the prediction of the properties relating to electron transport in solids. These new capabilities are of importance to the semiconductor industry and researchers in the field of electronic materials.

MedeA 2.12 adds capabilities for the analysis of electronic charge densities, polymer simulations and model construction. MedeA 2.12 also includes a newly developed set of VASP PAW potentials that take full advantage of recent VASP developments, especially for excited state calculations.

Join us in Warsaw

Where: ICM-Warsaw

ICM headquarter B, ul. Prosta 69, 00-838 Warszawa, floor 2, conference room 201

When: 15-16 November 2012

The unique property requirements needed when designing new materials and chemicals demand computer simulations on the atomic scale - experiment alone is simply too expensive.

Where: Mark Hopkins, San Francisco

When: Oct 23-25, 2012

Join us this year in San Francisco at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins for our annual MedeA® Users Group Meeting.

We'll kick off with hands-on training all day on October 23rd for any customers who would like to participate, and hold a reception in the evening. The technical presentations and discussion sessions will be held on October 24th and 25th with a banquet on October 24th.

Materials Design, Inc. announces the release of MedeA® version 2.11. A leader in Computational Materials Science, Materials Design, Inc. enables researchers and engineers to work efficiently by combining multiple simulation codes and methods with time-saving builders and tools in its MedeA® software environment. MedeA® allows researchers and engineers to focus on science.

We suggest accommodations in the Hotel Ibis Alésia, which should be made no later than May 20th. Given Paris' popularity with tourists in June, there is a chance the Hotel Ibis Alésia will not have accommodations.

MedeA 2.10 focuses on polymer and general organic simulation capabilities. This release is intended for customers wishing to explore the latest in polymer simulation capabilities.

Materials Design  is thrilled to announce a two day MedeA training and workshop event in Paris, the City of Light, on the 14th and 15th of June. The workshop will take place at the Hotel Ibis Alésia. Should you require assistance in obtaining accommodations, please do not hesitate to contact us. In the mean time, we encourage you to browse the agenda below, and hope you find talks relevant to your area of expertise.

Materials Design's top scientists and developers, as well as special guest Prof. Georg Kresse of the University of Viena, lead developer of VASP, are on hand to deliver talks and participate in stimulating discussion on the topics we all passionately pursue.
