"Hands-On" Workshop on Computational Biophysics

   http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Urbana_2010B/

The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group, NIH Resource for
Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics (www.ks.uiuc.edu) at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (www.uiuc.edu), will organize an

  "'Hands-On' Workshop on Computational Biophysics"

to be held November 29 - December 3, 2010 at the Beckman Institute for 
Advanced Science and Technology in Urbana, Illinois. Applications due by 
October 25, 2010. 

The workshop will explore physical models and computational approaches used 
for the simulation of biological systems and the investigation of their 
function at an atomic level. The course will be based on case studies 
including the properties of membranes and membrane proteins, mechanisms of 
molecular motors, trafficking in the living cell through water and ion 
channels, and signaling pathways. Relevant physical concepts, mathematical 
techniques, and computational methods will be introduced, including force 
fields and algorithms used in molecular modeling, molecular dynamics 
simulations on parallel computers and steered molecular dynamics simulations.

The workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers 
in computational and/or biophysical fields who seek to extend their research 
skills to include computational and theoretical expertise, as well as other 
researchers interested in theoretical and computational biophysics. Theory 
sessions in the morning will be followed by hands-on computer labs in the 
afternoon in which students will be able to set up and run simulations. 
Enrollment limited to 30 participants. The workshop will be held November 1-5,
2010. All participants are required to bring their own laptop, prepared for 
use in workshop tutorial sessions. Double-occupancy housing and course 
materials will be provided. The workshop can neither fund nor arrange 
participant travel.

Applications to the workshop are due by October 25, 2010. Selection and
notification of participants from the application pool will be completed
by October 29, 2010. Those selected to attend must register and pay a
workshop fee, if applicable, by November 5, 2010.  There is no registration 
fee for students; the fee is $100 for non-student academics, and $200 for 
all others; the fee is non-refundable.

An additional date of November 1-5, 2010 is also being enrolled (see
http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Urbana_2010A/ for details).

We look forward to receiving your application.
