Subject: 13.06.10 'Hands-On' Workshop on Computational Biophysics using VMD, NAMD, and ProDy, June 10-14, 2013, Pittsburgh, PA
The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group, NIH Center for Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics at the University of Illinois, and the BTRC Center for Multiscale Modeling of Biological Systems from the University of Pittsburgh, are pleased to announce the following training opportunity: "Hands-On" Workshop on Computational Biophysics http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Training/Workshop/Pittsburgh2013/ to be held June 10-14, 2013, at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. This workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and members of the BTRC Center for Multiscale Modeling of Biological Systems from the University of Pittsburgh . It will cover a wide range of physical models and computational approaches for the simulation of biological systems including VMD, NAMD and ProDy. The course will be based on case studies including the properties of membranes and membrane proteins, mechanisms of molecular motors, trafficking in the living cell through water and ion channels, signaling pathways and druggability simulations. Relevant physical concepts, mathematical techniques, and computational methods will be introduced, including force fields and algorithms used in molecular modeling, molecular dynamics simulations on parallel computers, elastic network models, and steered molecular dynamics simulations. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop for use in workshop tutorial sessions but computer workstations are also available. The workshop is designed for students and 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. Enrollment limited to 25 participants. Applications are due by May 12 for full consideration. Selection and notification of participants is ongoing through May 15. Those selected to attend must confirm participation and pay applicable registrations fees (students, $100; $200 non-student academics, $300 all others). Double-occupancy housing and all course materials are included in the fee. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops for the workshop, but computer workstations will be available. The workshop can neither fund nor arrange participant travel.
