How to run Q-Chem on USC HPCCFirst, you need to secure an allocation on HPCC. Check if your group already has an allocation and ask your professor to add you to the list of users. If you do not have one --- request HPC account and allocation (this should be done by the PI). If you are enrolled in Chem545, your name will be added to the class HPCC user list. Once you have the allocation, email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be added to the qchem group. Once this is done, you can submit jobs either by using IQmol graphic interface (which you need to install on your laptop or desktop) or by ssh-ing to HPCC and using a PBS script (this requires a basic knowledge of Unix OS).
