ANNOUNCEMENT MOLSIM 2021
January 4-15, 2021
ACMM, University of Amsterdam (NL)
MolSim-2021 is 2-week school that offers a program focusing on numerical
techniques for the study of properties of many-particle systems.
This year's edition will be offered fully online.
The school targets PhD and postdoctoral researchers who want to learn
these techniques to study topics in physics, chemistry or biology. The
course may also be followed by advanced MSc students. It offers a recap
of the statistical mechanics relevant for molecular simulation, and
addresses basic and advanced simulation techniques including Monte
Carlo, molecular dynamics, free energy calculations, rare events, coarse
Lecturers include Daan Frenkel and Berend Smit, among various others
expert in the field.
The school will have as special focus areas path sampling methods for
rare-event simulation. These will be covered with special sessions,
including a hands-on part for setting up path sampling for various type
of activated processes, by experts in the field, including Peter
Bolhuis, University of Amsterdam, NL.
All techniques will be accompanied by illustrative examples of present
The school is open for registration.
The school has a limited capacity, though the limit remains to be set.
