Subject: 12.02.11 "Hands-On" Workshop on Computational Biophysics using NAMD and VMD
The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group, NIH Center for Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics (www.ks.uiuc.edu), is pleased to announce the following training opportunity: "'Hands-On' Workshop on Computational Biophysics using VMD and NAMD" http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Urbana2012/ to be held February 11-15, 2012 at the Beckman Institute on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus. 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, and steered molecular dynamics simulations. The workshop is designed for students and scientists 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 participants will be able to set up and run simulations. Applications to the workshop are due by January 27, 2012, for full consideration. Selection and notification of participants from the application pool is ongoing through January 30. Those selected to attend must confirm participation and pay applicable registrations fees (no fee for graduate and other students; $100 non-student academics, $200 all others). 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.
