dc.description.abstract Exciting opportunities are emerging for science and scientists in Africa. There is a vast pool of latent talent that can be a vital source of advancement and cooperation that has the potential to overcome barriers within Africa, improving economic and social conditions for all African citizens. This article is an account of one effort to bring together young scientists to develop a stimulating environment, collaborations and infrastructure for forefront research at the highest levels. The area of research involves computation that can be done with modest facilities, with applications for scientific and technological developments such as materials for solar energy, minerals, strong materials, and other areas especially relevant for Africa. en
