Subject: 13.11.18 Computational Biophysics Workshop using NAMD and VMD, November 18-22, 2013, Urbana, Illinois, USA
The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group, NIH Center for 
Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics (, is pleased to 
announce the following training opportunity:

"'Hands-On' Workshop on Computational Biophysics using VMD and NAMD"

to be held November 18-22, 2013 at the Beckman Institute on the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus. 

The workshop will explore physical models and computational approaches used 
for the simulation of biological systems and the investigation of their 
function at both atomic and cellular level. The course will be based on case 
studies including the properties of mechanical proteins, DNA sequencing using
nanopores, bioinformatic analysis, and signaling pathways. Relevant physical 
concepts, mathematical techniques, and computational methods will be 
introduced, including force fields and algorithms used in molecular modeling, 
molecular dynamics simulations on GPU and parallel computers, steered 
molecular dynamics simulations, and computational nano-biology.

The workshop is designed for researchers and students 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. Those interested 
in attending must apply for and be accepted into the workshop. Enrollment 
limited to 20 participants. 

Applications to the workshop are due by November 3, 2013, for full 
consideration. Selection and notification of participants from the
application pool is ongoing through November 8. Those selected to attend
must confirm participation and pay applicable registrations fees (students,
$150; $250 non-student academics, $350 all others). Double-occupancy 
housing and 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.
