                   ANNOUNCEMENT MOLSIM 2009
               Amsterdam (NL), january 5-16, 2009

The MolSim2009 school targets PhD and postdoc researcher and aims to give 
an introduction in the basic molecular simulation techniques: molecular
dynamics and Monte Carlo. The idea is to give an understanding of
principles underlying these techniques and to use this understanding
to optimize a simulation code.  The more advanced topics include
molecular simulations in the various ensembles (NVE, NVT, NPT, grand
canonical, etc), free energy computations, phase equilibria, rare
events, configurational-bias Monte Carlo.  The morning sessions are
lectures introducing the methods and in the afternoons there are
computer exercises in which these methods are applied.  The course
does not assume any previous knowledge in molecular
simulations. However, elementary knowledge in thermodynamics and
statistical thermodynamics is assumed.

Lecturers include Daan Frenkel, Berend Smit, Peter Bolhuis, Bernd Ensing,
and Evert Jan Meijer.

Course Material (will be provided by the organizers) and consists of:
* "Understanding Molecular Simulations" ~ Frenkel and Smit (Academic Press, 2002).
* Excercisebook.

The participation fee is 200 Euro.

Support for participation is available via the
ESF Program "Molsimu" and via CECAM.
