"Hands-On" Workshop on Computational Biophysics http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Champaign09J/ Application Deadline: May 3, 2009 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 July 6-10, 2009 at the I Hotel and Conference Center in Champaign, Illinois. The workshop will explore a wide range of physical models and computational approaches for the simulation of biological systems. The workshop is based on case studies including the properties of membranes and membrane proteins, mechanism of molecular motors, trafficking in the living cell through water and ion channels, and signaling pathways. Physical concepts, mathematical techniques, and computational methods required will be introduced, including force fields and algorithms used in molecular modeling, molecular dynamics simulations on parallel computers, steered molecular dynamics simulations, and combined quantum mechanical - molecular mechanical calculations. 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. Applications to the workshop are due by May 3, 2009. Selection and notification of participants from the application pool will be completed by May 13, 2009. Those selected to attend must register and pay a workshop fee by May 23, 2009. The base registration fee is $200 for students, $300 for non-student academics, and $400 for all other applicants. Double-occupancy housing and all course materials are included in the fee. All participants are required to bring their own laptop for use in workshop tutorial sessions. The workshop can neither fund nor arrange participant travel. Due to space and equipment constraints, the workshop is limited to 20 participants per workshop. For further information, and online application, go to http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Champaign09J/ . An additional date of August 10-14, 2009 is also being enrolled (see http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Champaign09A/ for details). We look forward to receiving your application.
