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), presents a Workshop on GPU Programming for Molecular Modeling http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/GPU_Aug2010/ to be held August 6-8, 2010, at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, on the University of Illinois campus in Urbana, Illinois, USA. Application, selection, and notification of participants is on-going through July 29, 2010. Note: Participants are encouraged to attend the multi-site "Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Many-core Processors" workshop (https://www.vscse.org/summerschool/2010/manycore.html) the preceding week (August 2-6) at the location of their choice. Registration for this workshop is required for participants without equivalent GPU-programming training or experience. The GPU Programming for Molecular Modeling workshop will extend GPU programming techniques to the field of molecular modeling, including subjects such as particle-grid algorithms (electrostatics and molecular orbitals), particle-particle algorithms with an emphasis on non-bonded force calculations, radial distribution functions in GPU histogramming, single-node multi-GPU algorithms, and GPU clusters. Specific examples utilizing the NAMD and VMD software programs will be introduced and discussed in detail. Participants are invited and encouraged to bring their own molecular modeling problems to the workshop, for group discussion of how to address those problems via accelerated GPU hardware. The workshop is designed for researchers in computational and/or biophysical fields who seek to extend their GPU programming skills to include molecular modeling. Advanced lecture sessions will be followed by extended discussion periods between lecturers and participants and laboratory time in which participants will be able to work on their own molecular modeling GPU codes. Enrollment limited to 20 participants; selection and notification of participants is ongoing through July 29, 2010. The workshop will be held August 6-8, 2010. All participants are required to bring their own laptop, prepared for use in the workshop training sessions. Participants must arrange and pay for their own travel and accommodations. We look forward to receiving your application. TCBG Workshop Organizers Email: workshop+GPU_Aug2010~!~ks.uiuc.eduNOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
