NAMD Developer Workshop at Urbana, IL


We are pleased to invite you to the next edition of the NAMD developer workshop jointly organized by the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and the University of Chicago, and to be held at the Beckman Institute, Urbana, Illinois.

This workshop is intended to gather the community of
NAMD developers for fruitful exchange on current and future developments of the program. It will consist of short presentations aimed at covering practical coding aspects, ongoing developments, architecture specificities, implementations of novel algorithms, as well as broader topics, notably future directions of the program and the parallel programming environment Charm++.

This workshop is not intended for scientific presentations about applications, although illustrative applications of on-going code developments would be welcome
