Welcome to Hermes 2018


Hermes is an entirely student-led summer school part of a 6-year old tradition that brings together training in materials modelling and science communication. It brings together the brightest and best early career researchers from around the world and equip them with the skills they need to maximise their future impact while promoting teamwork and creating a long-lasting international network.


It is a multi-disciplinary event with a series of masterclasses on computer simulations at different lengthscales leading international academics allowing you to see where your work fits into the wider context of materials modelling. Communication professionals will run workshops to show you the art of effective presentation so that you will leave with the vital skills you need in science communication to bring your research to the attention of the widest audience possible.


Hermes will take place on the 19th - 23rd of July 2018 at 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 Theory and Simulation of Materials Centre for Doctoral Training at Imperial College London.


The whole delivery team look forward to welcoming you in summer 2018 and in the meantime if you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to contact us!
