Subject: 14.08.04 "Hands-on" Workshop on Computational Biophysics at Lake Tahoe, August 4-8, 2014
The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group (, NIH 
Center for Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics, is pleased to announce:

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

to be held at the Granlibakken Conference Center in Tahoe City, California, 
August 4-8, 2014, with an application deadline of June 16, 2014. 

The workshop will explore physical models and computational approaches used 
for the simulation of biological systems and the investigation of their 
function at an atomic level. The course will be based on case studies 
including the properties of membranes and membrane proteins, mechanisms of 
molecular motors, trafficking in the living cell through water and ion 
channels, 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 parallel computers and steered molecular dynamics simulations.

The workshop is designed for professional and academic 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 participants will be able to set up and run 
simulations. Those interested in attending must apply and be accepted into 
the workshop. Enrollment limited to 26 participants. All participants are 
required to bring their own laptop for use in workshop tutorial sessions. 
Meals and course materials will be provided. Housing in double rooms 
available at the Granlibakken Conference Center. Participants must pay 
their own housing and travel. Deadline of June 16 for full consideration of
application; selection and notification of participants ongoing through 
June 18.

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!
