Subject: 14.08.11 Very Large System Simulation Workshop, Urbana, IL, August 11-15, 2014
The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group, NIH Center for Macromolecular
Modeling and Bioinformatics (, announces a:

Very Large System Simulation Workshop, August 11-15, 2014

with an application DEADLINE of July 23

to be held at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology in 
Urbana, Illinois.

Computational biology in the petascale era offers a unique opportunity to 
connect atomic-level descriptions of biological systems such as viruses and 
cellular organelles. The course will introduce participants to the many 
challenges that arise in the course of conducting molecular dynamics 
simulations on very large biomolecular complexes. Relevant physical concepts,
mathematical techniques, and computational methods will be introduced, 
including approaches for preparing, simulating, and analyzing large systems 
on state-of-the-art petascale supercomputing hardware, data management 
practices, and remote visualization, using the NAMD and VMD software. The 
workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and Computational 
Biophysics Group from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

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 molecular dynamics simulation of large 
biomolecular complexes on petascale computing systems. Theory and 
methodology 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. The workshop will make use of remote computational and 
visualization resources at national supercomputer centers. Familiarity with 
NAMD and VMD is required*. Enrollment limited to 26 participants. The 
workshop will be held August 11-15, 2014, in Urbana, Illinois. All 
participants are required to bring their own laptop for use in the workshop 
training sessions. Those interested must apply for and be accepted into the 
workshop. Participants must arrange and pay for their own travel and 
accommodations. Registration fees and important dates are described at the
workshop website:
