This is the homepage of the upcoming three day Gromacs Workshop starting
on 27th February 2007, in Espoo, Finland. (6010'42.09"N, 2449'58.94"E)

Registration is now open. Register early, as space is limited.

The program outline will be the following. Before the actual Workshop
which starts on Tuesday there will be a basic tutorial for using Gromacs.

The hands-on tutorials can be chosen from the following topics:

    * free-energy simulations
    * membrane and membrane proteins
    * pull-code -atomic force microscopy simulations
    * kinetics analysis from simulations
    * parallel simulations
    * build your own linux cluster

The program will be updated when the details converge. If you're interested,
have a look at the previous course on 2004 here: Gromacs Workshop 2004

Tips on accommodation etc. can be found on the registration page:

The Helsinki-Vantaa airport is some 30-45 minutes away from downtown
Helsinki by bus (3.6 EUR). Taxi will do the job faster but costs some
30 Eur. The course is arranged in collaboration with the ISB - National
Graduate School in Informational and Structural Biology.

Gromacs is a fast and versatile molecular dynamics package.
For details of the code, see the homepage http://www.gromacs.org

We are proud to present a Gromacs Worksop organised by the Gromacs developers,
CSC - Scientific Computing ltd, and ISB National Graduate School in
Informational and Structural Biology.

The workshop consists of lectures and hands-on tutorials. The lectures will
be recorded and put available in the web for everyone to reach.
Course program

The event starts with lectures on Tuesday morning at 09:15 and consists of
keynote and contributed talks. If you want to contribute, please contact
us and send an abstract for a poster/talk, see below. Topics that would
interest the audience probably span from method development to specific
case studies - anything you can do with Gromacs :)

The afternoons are dedicated to hands-on tutorial sessions and the topics
can be chosen of the following:

* free-energy simulations
* membrane and membrane proteins
* pull-code -atomic force microscopy simulations
* kinetics analysis from simulations
* parallel simulations
* build your own linux cluster

More details on the lectures and lecturers will be added here in the near
future.

Participation to the workshop hands-on tutorials is limited to 40 due to
spatial constraints. The lectures can be attended by more people. A number
of places has been reserved for participants coming outside Finland.
Confirmation of registration will be sent individually by email. Due to
the limited number of places we encourage to register early.

We have only a limited number of workstations and laptops for the hands-on
tutorials. If possible, please bring your own laptop. You can run simulations
directly on it or then connect to our cluster via LAN / WLAN.
