Subject: 18.09.10 "Hands-On" Workshop on Enhanced Sampling and Free-Energy Calculation, Urbana, Illinois (September 10-14)
We are pleased to invite you for the second edition of the "Hands-On" Computational 
Biophysics Workshop series dedicated to Enhanced Sampling and Free-Energy Calculation.

The workshop is organized by the NIH Center for Macromolecular Modeling and 
Bioinformatics of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and will be 
held at the Beckman Institute, in Urbana - IL, from 10-14 of September 2018.

This workshop will be presented by members of the NIH Center, and by invited global
leaders and developers of the methods and techniques covered. Topics will include
instructions in state-of-the-art molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, enhanced 
techniques and free-energy calculations using NAMD. To prepare and analyze the 
simulations, participants will be using the molecular visualizer VMD. Morning 
lectures 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 advanced NAMD users conducting research projects in 
computational and/or biophysical fields seeking to extend their expertise in MD
It is required that the participants possess extensive knowledge in preparing and 
executing MD simulations in VMD and NAMD. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.
