Attend Hands-on Training

Our hands-on training, offered by the MedeA®experts on our support team, provides an excellent learning opportunity for both beginners and experts alike. Carefully curated examples show the wide range of MedeA's functionality, from simple tasks to the high-throughput capabilities that can significantly enhance your productivity.

Discover What's New in MedeA

New features in MedeA 2.17 include our ForcefieldOptimizer which helps you develop and refine forcefield parameters, the enhancement of our integration of the UNiversal CLuster Expansion (UNCLE) method, and graphical performance enhancements for large structures.

Present Your Cutting-Edge Work

The heart of the MedeA Users' Group Meeting are the talks presented on a broad range of topics from those eminent in their fields. We are always excited to see how our software users push the boundaries of computational materials science - Trust us, they do!

Network with Peers

Each year the MedeA Users' Group Meeting includes a complimentary cocktail reception and banquet dinner. These events are a great chance to meet up with colleagues, find out what others in your field are working on and enjoy lively and thought-provoking discussions.
