Subject: 16.11.14 Hands-On Workshop on Computational Biophysics: November 14-18 in Atlanta, GA
This workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group 
from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in collaboration with the research group of JC 
Gumbart at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Topics will cover instruction in state-of-the-art 
molecular dynamics simulation and free energy techniques using NAMD, analysis and visualization
with VMD, and bacterial cell simulations with Lattice Microbes.
Morning lecture presentations will introduce fundamental theory and concepts, while afternoon 
hands-on computer laboratory sessions will allow participants to apply NAMD, VMD, and 
Lattice Microbes 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.

- Principles and Applications of Molecular Dynamics Simulations with NAMD
- Molecular Simulation, Analysis, and Visualization with QwikMD and VMD
- Methods for Computing Free-Energies in Biomolecular Systems
- Introductions to Evolutionary Concepts, Network Analysis, and Cell Simulations
- Computational Research at the Interface of Physics, Biology, and Nanotechnology
