Enquiries: Dr Malcolm Newey

“A sizable number of computational chemists (physicists, biologists and material scientists alike) use a wide variety of tools to perform computation, visualization and presentation. Many a times these are incompatible with each other, necessitating reliance on, often cumbersome, external tools    to perform appropriate conversions. A few of the computational chemists also use myriad programming environments to develop new computational codes or visualization tools. However, there is no environment that succinctly amalgamates programming environments and various tools available to a computational chemist, which many a times hinders easy integration and rapid application development.

“In this talk, I present MeTA Studio, a programmable cross-platform environment for computational chemists that aims to address this issue.”

This seminar is part of the CECS Seminar Series.

Ganesh Venkateshwara is a Post-doctoral fellow at the School of Computer Science, Australian National University, and is an active member of the school’s Computer Systems group.
