CAMS has sponsered summer schools for researchers entering the field of atomic scale modeling. Many of the presenters have kindly agreed to make their slides and videos available here.

The materials available covers such diverse topics as grain boundaries, pseudopotentials, and quantum monte carlo calculations, and includes introductory tutorials as well as advanced computational techniques.
