Dear researcher,

Let me thank you if you already applied for the second edition of the
Computational Biophysics Workshop
<http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop> series
dedicated to Enhanced Sampling and Free-Energy Calculation.

If you didn't apply yet and you are interested in attending, please visit
the web page: http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Urbana2018b/.

The workshop is organized by the NIH Center for Macromolecular Modeling and
Bioinformatics <http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/> of the University of Illinois at

Location: Beckman Institute, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, 405
N Mathews Ave, Urbana, IL 61801
Workshop Dates: September 10-14, 2018
Application Deadline: August 3rd, 2018

Please feel free to share this announcement with your contacts.

Best wishes and hope to see you at the workshop.

João Ribeiro

Workshop Description:

This workshop will be presented by members of the NIH Center, and by
invited global leaders and developers of the methods and techniques
covered. Topics will include instructions in state-of-the-art molecular
dynamics (MD) simulations, enhanced sampling techniques and free-energy
calculations using NAMD <https://www-s.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/namd/>. To
prepare and analyze the simulations, participants will be using the
molecular visualizer VMD <https://www-s.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/>. Morning
lectures will introduce fundamental theory and concepts, while afternoon
hands-on computer laboratory sessions will allow participants to apply NAMD
and VMD directly in a series of guided tutorials.

The workshop is designed for advanced NAMD users conducting research
projects in computational and/or biophysical fields seeking to extend their
expertise in MD simulations. It is required that the participants possess
extensive knowledge in preparing and executing MD simulations in VMD and
NAMD. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.
