Subject: 18.05.21 "Hands-on" Workshop on Computational Biophysics at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (May 21 - 25)
This workshop will cover a wide range of physical models and computational 
approaches for the simulation of biological systems at multiple scales, 
using cutting edge technology including ProDy, NAMD, VMD, iGNM, and ANM. 
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, signaling 
pathways and druggability simulations. 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, elastic network models, and 
steered molecular dynamics simulations. 

It will be presented by members of the NIH Center for Macromolecular 
Modeling & Bioinformatics from the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign and the National Center for Multiscale Modeling of 
Biological Systems (MMBioS) from the University of Pittsburgh. 

The workshop is designed for students and researchers 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 students will be able to set up and run 
simulations. Enrollment limited to 25 participants.
