Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the CECAM tutorial (,

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

with DEADLINE May 1, 2014 

to be held June 16-20, 2014, on the campus of Jacobs University Bremen, 
Germany. The workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and 
Computational Biophysics Group ( 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

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 May 1, 2014. Selection and
notification of participants from the application pool will be completed 
by May 6, 2014. Participants must pay for their own housing, available at 
the Residential Colleges on the Jacobs University campus for a cost of 
410 Euro for shared housing, or 470 Euro for a single room (limited 
availability). Accommodation and full board are from Sunday evening to 
Saturday morning. Those staying off-campus are also assessed a 
non-refundable 50 Euro registration fee. The workshop will provide 
learning materials; participants must arrange and pay for their own travel.
Participants must bring their own laptop for use during the workshop. 

Due to space and equipment constraints, the workshop is limited to 40
participants. For more information and on-line application, go to:

TCBG Workshop Team (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
together with Chris Chipot (Université de Lorraine)
and Ulrich Kleinekathoefer (Jacobs University Bremen)
