Subject: 12.01.09 MolSim-2012: School on Molecular Simulation (Amsterdam, NL)
Applications are invited for the winterschool "MolSim 2012: UNDERSTANDING MOLECULAR SIMULATION" The school will be two weeks, January 9-20, 2012, and is organized by the Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling at the University of Amsterdam (NL). For full information and application see http://www.cecam.org/workshop-699.html The registration closes on November 26, 2011. Organizers: Daan Frenkel Cambridge Univeristy and University of Amsterdam Evert Jan Meijer University of Amsterdam Bernd Ensing University of Amsterdam We would appreciate if you could bring the school to the attention of colleage researchers to whom it is of potential interest. ANNOUNCEMENT MOLSIM 2012 January 9-20, 2012 ACMM, University of Amsterdam (NL) The MolSim2012 school targets PhD and postdoc researchers and aims to give an introduction to the basic molecular simulation techniques: molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo. The idea is to give an understanding of principles underlying these techniques and to use this understanding to optimize a simulation code. The more advanced topics include molecular simulations in the various ensembles (NVE, NVT, NPT, grand canonical, etc), free energy computations, phase equilibria, rare events, configurational-bias Monte Carlo. The morning sessions are lectures introducing the methods and in the afternoons there is a hands-on exercise session where these methods are applied. The course does not assume any previous knowledge in molecular simulations. However, elementary knowledge in thermodynamics and statistical thermodynamics is required. Lecturers include Daan Frenkel, Berend Smit, Peter Bolhuis, Bernd Ensing, and Evert Jan Meijer. Course Material (will be provided by the school): "Understanding Molecular Simulations" by Frenkel and Smit (Academic Press, 2002). Lab-Course book. The participation fee is 700 Euro. The school will be supported by CECAM. A view of the most recent editions of the school (MolSim2008 - MolSim2011) can be found at http://molsim.chem.uva.nl/molsim2012/index.html For more information and registration visit the CECAM website: http://www.cecam.org/workshop-699.html THE REGISTRATION FOR MOLSIM-2012 CLOSES ON NOVEMBER 26, 2011.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
