Workshop Description:

This workshop will cover Quantum Mechanics (QM), Molecular Mechanics (MM),
and Hybrid QM/MM simulations with NAMD
<>. The participants will have the
opportunity to interact and learn from the developers of the recent QM/MM
<> suite in NAMD/VMD. For QM
simulations, the packages MOPAC <> and ORCA
<>will be employed. The participants will have
the opportunity to use the recent developments in VMD
<> and QwikMD
<>. The molecular calculations
proposed during this workshop will be executed using the computing power
delivered by the Amazon Web Servers
<> cloud

The workshop is designed for advanced MD users conducting research projects
in computational and/or biophysical fields seeking to extend their
expertise in MD and QM/MM simulations.

Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.
