Application of Molecular Simulations to Oil and Gas Industry

The First International Symposium on
gApplication of Nano-geosciences in Petroleum Engineering (NanoGeoscience 2011)h

We will open a one-day school titled "Application of Molecular Simulations to Oil and Gas Industry" on December 15th (Thu), immediately after the Symposium. We are going to receive up to 8-10 students. This is going to be a hands-on tutorial school, so please carry on your own laptop. The detailed information on school is as follows.
