Subject: 11.05.16 "Hands-On" Workshop on Computational Biophysics using NAMD and VMD
Dear Colleagues, The National Resource for Biomedical Supercomputing (www.nrbsc.org) at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (www.psc.edu) and Carnegie Mellon University (www.cmu.edu) will organize an "Computational Biophysics Workshop using NAMD and VMD" <http://www.nrbsc.org/education/workshops/namd/> to be held May 16-20, 2011 at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group (www.ks.uiuc.edu) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and 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 graduate students and postdoctoral 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. Applications to the workshop are due by March 26, 2011. Selection and notification of participants from the application pool will be completed by April 4th, 2011. Registration will be free of charge for attendees from non-profit academic institutions, and, in addition, the National Resource for Biomedical Supercomputing will cover housing costs. Participants are, however, required to cover their own travel expenses. Due to space and equipment constraints, the workshop is limited to 25 participants. For on-line application, go to <http://www.nrbsc.org/education/workshops/namd/> We look forward to receiving your application.
