PAST HIGHLIGHTS

Our Molecular Simulation with Machine Learning workshop held on July 13 – 14, 2020 was a success!   We had a total of 584 registered participants (USA+Canada: 156; other American countries: 238; Europe: 101; Asia: 72; Africa: 17).  The large majority graduate students (242) and postdocs (159), and the rest (183) on academic or research positions. The workshop’s program included lectures and hands-on tutorials for students and postdocs.  The workshop videos are in the links below.

 

July 13th, 2020 – Molecular Simulation with Machine Learning Workshop (presentations & discussions)

Morning session 1, Chair: Thomas Gartner 

Weinan E (Princeton University): “Machine learning assisted modeling”

Roberto Car (Princeton University): “Molecular simulation with the deep potential method”

Pablo Piaggi (Princeton University): “The art of non-Boltzmann sampling”

 

Morning session 2, Chair: Amartya Bose

Gary Grest /Aidan Thompson (Sandia National Laboratories): “Introduction to LAMMPS molecular dynamics simulator” 

Thomas Kuhne (University of Paderborn): “CP2K/Quickstep: The Swiss Army Knife of Molecular Simulation”

Menno Bokdam (University of Vienna): “Entropy-driven phase transformations in hybrid perovskites simulated by on-the-fly machine-learning force fields” 

July 13th, 2020 – Molecular Simulation with Machine Learning Workshop (Tutorials) – Part 1 & Part 2

 

July 13, 2020, TUTORIAL SESSION 1, HOSTS: Marcos Calegari Andrade, Yixiao Chen, Tom Gartner, Pablo Piaggi, Shuwen Yue, Linfeng Zhang

Hands-on tutorials on the software package for molecular simulation with machine learning (ML) tools developed at the Computational Chemical Science Center “Chemistry in Solution and at Interfaces” (CSI).    The package includes codes to construct and use deep neural network models of the potential energy surface and electronic properties of multi-atomic systems that reproduce the results of electronic density functional theory. ML codes need interfacing with community codes for electronic structure and ab-initio simulation, classical molecular dynamics, path-integral molecular dynamics, and enhanced sampling of rare events.

Morning session 3, Chair: Pablo Piaggi

Michele Ceriotti (EPFL): “Equivariant representations for atomistic machine learning”

Sebastian Dick (SUNY): “Machine learned XC potentials in Siesta: NeuralXC”

Davide Tisi (SISSA): “Green Kubo simulation of transport properties from ab initio to neural networks”  

 

Morning session 4, Chair: Zachary Goldsmith

Robert A. DiStasio (Cornell U.): “DFT and Beyond: Benchmark Data for Next-Generation Machine Learning of Intra- and Inter-Molecular Interactions”

J. Mark Martirez (UCLA): “Density-functional-theory-based embedding theories for embedded correlated wavefunction description of molecules and surfaces”

 

Round table discussion. Panelists: All the speakers plus Stefano Baroni  (SISSA), Paolo Giannozzi (U. Udine), Aidan Thompson (Sandia  National Laboratories), L. Zhang
