Hermes is an entirely student-led Summer school that brings together training in both materials modelling and science communication. It attracts bright and like-minded early career researchers from around the world and equips them with the skills they need to maximise their future impact. Alongside this, Hermes aims to promote teamwork and create long-lasting international collaborations . Following on from the hugely successful Hermes 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018, Hermes 2020 will be the fifth iteration of the Summer school.
Being a multi-disciplinary event, Hermes will consist of a series of masterclasses on computer simulations at different length scales. Consequently, this will provide insight as to where your work fits into the wider context of materials modelling. Alongside the academics giving masterclasses, communication professionals will run workshops to show you the art of effective presentation. This will leave participants with the vital communication skills needed in science, allowing you to bring your research to the attention of the widest possible audience.
Hermes will take place from 24th - 28th July 2020 at The Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park; just a stone's throw from London. This event is designed and led by students from leading academic institutions in the UK and abroad and with support from Computational Center for Materials Modelling Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Cambridge.
The organising committee looks forward to welcoming you in summer 2020 and in the meantime if you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to contact us!
