Welcome to the CMCSN

The Computational Materials and Chemical Sciences Network (CMCSN) aims to foster the development of computational expertise in the general fields of materials and chemical sciences.  CMCSN enables different research groups to collaborate on research projects, building on existing programs and expertise while avoiding unnecessary duplication of effort.
