Survey on the use of simulation codes

I have been contacted by a Belgian group to disctribute a survey on the use of simulation codes as attached below:
If you have free time, please cooperate with their survey.




Dear Prof. Ozaki,

I'm a researcher working for Matgenix, a young Belgian start-up active in computational quantum chemistry and solid-state physics. We have recently launched a survey on the use of simulation codes by our community members, with the message delivered below. For this survey to be the most representative and useful to the community (the results will be fully anonymous and public), we are trying to gather responses from people using as many different codes as possible. We really think each development team can benefit from this survey, but only if it is meaningful.
For these reasons, I am contacting you to see whether it would be possible for you to forward the survey to the members of the OpenMX community: coordinators, developers, and users are all welcome to reply.

Thank you in advance for your time and help,

Best Regards,

Guillaume Brunin
Research & Development Engineer

What is your experience with simulation codes ?

Over the last decades, the field of computational materials science has greatly advanced and is now rich with an impressive diversity and very advanced capabilities. In the jungle of all the possibilities that are out there, it is sometimes difficult to know which would be the better (combination of) tools for our task, what the current and future needs of the community are, and what the general (or specific) feelings are with respect to this situation.

With this survey, we hope to be able to paint a more precise picture of the needs of our community and pave the way for the development of new open-source codes/libraries that will fill the existing gaps and be beneficial to all of us.
Whether you are a user, a developer, and/or a project manager, we want to hear from you !

The results of this survey will be publicly available- but don't worry, it's all anonymous.

If you would like to help us (and, really, help the community), please follow this link to the survey:

Filling this survey will take you about 5 to 15 minutes, depending on how much you have to tell us.
Feel free to share this message with your colleagues!

We thank you in advance for your time,

On behalf of Matgenix,
