The first day of the 2nd Annual Molecular Simulation Summer School is is kicking off today.
We have approximately 30 students from around Canada, plus 30 local students from Calgary. We've brought in six external speakers, in addition to a few locals:
Qiang Cui (UW Madison) QM/MM Methods
Jeff Klauda (Maryland) Lipid simulations and force fields
Siewert-Jan Marrink (Groningen) Coarse grained models of membranes
Guillaum Lamoureux (Concordia) Polarizable force fields
José Faraldo-Gomez (NIH) Free energy landscapes and most probable paths
Justin MacCallum (Calgary) Combining simulation with experimental data
Wonpil-Im (Kansas) Modeling and simulation using CHARMM-GUI
Sergei Noskov (Calgary) Enhanced sampling of membrane transporters
Peter Tieleman (Calgary) Molecular simulations and Compute Canada
After two days of lectures, we then have 2.5 days of hands-on workshops, plus a trip to Banff.
