  9. Designing good simulation projects (Lecture)
  10. Dealing with non-standard residues (Lecture / Hands on)
  11. What to do if there is no crystal structure (Lecture)
  12. Statistical mechanics for free energy calculations [Thermodynamic Integration] (Lecture / Hands on)
  13. QM/MM coupled potential simulations (Lecture)
  14. GPU accelerated MD (Lecture)

Attendees

Attendees consist of Graduate students and postdocs as well as few faculty members interested in learning about Molecular Dynamics techniques.

The number is limited by the availability of hardware for the hands-on tutorials.

These require each student to have access to a desktop running Linux. Student number is limited to 40.

Registration
