When: 2 - 4 November 2011

Join us this year for a taste of New England in historic Boston at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for our annual MedeA Users Group Meeting. We'll kick off with hands-on training all day on November 2nd 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 November 3rd and 4th with a banquet on November 3rd.

See our detailed agenda and reserve your seat for training sessions.

Materials Design® announces the release of MedeA® version 2.7, offering the option to run natively on Linux in addition to many other enhancements. The operating systems now fully supported by MedeAare Windows (XP, Vista, and 7), and Linux (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE).

In addition, MedeA® also connects to computing resources in the background for large-scale computationally intensive tasks that use a variety of Unix flavors and queuing systems, as well as Windows HPC.

The US National Science Foundation (NSF) has made changes to how data management plans are submitted as required components of a proposal. All proposals must now describe plans for data management and sharing of the products of research, or assert the absence of the need for such plans.

Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA and Le Mans, France - January 11, 2011.

Since 1998, Dr. Eyert has been at the Institute of Physics and the Center for Electronic Correlations and Magnetism at the University of Augsburg in Germany where he played an essential role in initiating and leading multi-institutional advanced research projects in the field of solid-state materials. He has lectured on Computational Physics, Materials Science, and Electronic Structure Calculations, and is the author of a book on electronic structure methods and about 120 research articles and book contributions.

The integration of LAMMPS with the MedeA® software suite expands the breadth of its simulation methods into the realm of millions of atoms and complements the existing Gibbs program, which is widely used to simulate the behavior of fluids. Together with the electronic structure program VASP, MedeA® now offers a unique integration of state-of-the-art methods for the full range of atomistic simulations.

Santa Fe, NM, USA – November 2, 2010

Philippe Ungerer comes to Materials Design® from IFP Energies nouvelles (IFP New Energy), a public R&D and training organization in France that focuses on applied research and development in the field of oil and gas exploration and production, hydrocarbon processing, powertrain engineering, and new energy technologies such as CO2 storage and biofuels. For the last four years, he was Scientific Director of IFP Energies nouvelles, where he was in charge of exploratory research.

Where: ICM, University of Warsaw, Poland

When: 16-17 November 2010

Attend the European MedeA® workshop Atomic-Scale Modeling of Materials: Understanding Mechanisms and Predicting Properties. The workshop is organized in collaboration with the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM).

Raytheon's Technology Today describes the ongoing cooperation between Materials Design® and Raytheon as they work to find lead-free solder.

MedeA-VASP and the Transition State Search module are powerful tools in prescreening interesting candidates to eliminate toxic lead.
The goal is long-life: Lead is used to suppress whisker growth and preserve the amazing thermal properties of solder. The result? Contacts that last.

And we all know from the movies that high lead concentrations can shorten your life span.
Or as they say in the West "With MedeA® in his hand, nothing stands in his way."

Montrouge, France and Santa Fe, NM, USA – August 31, 2010

Materials Design® was named one of two industrial partners in the PREDIMOL Project. This project will demonstrate the applicability of computational methods in predicting physicochemical properties of chemical substances. Accurate knowledge of this data is required by the new EU regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals). This concerns more than 143,000 substances which have been pre-registered by 65,000 companies in order to allow their use before 2018.

Where: San Diego, California

When: 27-29 October 2010

Join us this year in San Diego at the Embassy Suites Hotel San Diego Bay for our annual MedeA Users Group Meeting.
