The Schrödinger Maestro Materials Modelling Suite is a collection of tools accessible via one graphical user interface (GUI). Access to Maestro will became available for all academic users in Finland from January 2020.

The lectures will be given and hands-on exercises done at the CSC training room workstations (no need to bring your laptop). Read here how to use Maestro at CSC.

Prior experience of Maestro is not needed, but basic understanding of quantum chemistry is useful.

You can also join to follow a video stream of the lectures, but unfortunately there will be limited support for doing the hands-on remotely. If you want to participate remotely, please send email to atte.sillanpaa ät to get hands-on input files.

You can install and test your setup in here: and on Friday morning join the live stream in here.

If you're currently affiliated outside Finland, but would like to make a research visit here to e.g. work with Maestro, check the travel funding provided by HPC-Europa3!


Training workshop on simulating atomic layer deposition and related gas-surface processes

Lectures and hands-on: 09:30-16:00

This day-long workshop will give training in the use of Schrödinger's Materials Science Suite for the atomic-scale simulation of the chemistry of atomic layer deposition (ALD) and related gas-surface processes.  Participants will get hands-on experience in using the Maestro GUI, including the specialised model builders for molecules, organometallic clusters, bulk materials and surfaces.  The quantum mechanics engines Jaguar and Quantum Espresso will be introduced.  The workshop will also include a brief recap of background theory for quantum chemistry and some case studies of ALD simulations from the research literature.
