Launching a New Era for NWChem

PNNL-developed computational chemistry code set to grow under new ECP project

August 2016
NWChemEx: Tackling Chemical, Materials and Biomolecular Challenges in the Exascale Era was recently selected as a four-year project for the national Exascale Computing Project, known as ECP. NWChemEx will enhance the popular computational chemistry code, NWChem, to dramatically improve its scalability, performance, extensibility, and portability to take full advantage of exascale computing technologies. Dr. Thom Dunning, a Battelle Fellow with the University of Washington-PNNL Northwest Institute for Advanced Computing, is Project Director for the NWChemEx project.
