Subject: 16.10.17 Hands-On Workshop on Computational Biophysics: October 17-21 in Urbana, IL
Hands-On Workshop on Computational Biophysics: October 17-21 in Urbana, IL

This workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group
from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and feature instruction in state-of-the-art 
modeling and molecular dynamics simulation techniques using NAMD and VMD. Morning lecture 
presentations will introduce fundamental theory and concepts, while afternoon hands-on computer 
laboratory sessions will allow participants to apply NAMD and VMD directly in a series of guided 
tutorials. The workshop is designed for all students and researchers in computational and/or 
biophysical fields who seek to extend their expertise to include biomolecular simulations. 
Experimentalists and non-specialists are encouraged to attend and will benefit particularly 
from instruction in the use of QwikMD, a new teaching software incorporating NAMD and VMD that
significantly lowers the learning curve for novice users.
