Gaussian, Inc., in conjunction with the Center of Excellence (CoE) for
Computational Chemistry at the University of Ulm, is pleased to sponsor Introduction
to Gaussian: Theory and
Practice. This workshop will be presented by representatives of
Gaussian, Inc. It will take place at the University of Ulm in Ulm, Germany.
Instructors will include Dr. Doug Fox and Dr. Hrant Hratchian of Gaussian, Inc.
The workshop will cover the full range of methods available in the Gaussian
09 package with emphasis on new methods and features which make Gaussian
applicable to an ever widening spectrum of research applications. The
workshop is structured to provide an introduction to electronic structure
theory as well as a hands-on review for researchers active in the field.
It is open to researchers at all levels of academic, government and industrial
