CECAM-NL — hosted at Amsterdam Science Park, University of Amsterdam
(Updated December 06, 2022)
(update: more information, including schedule, at www.compchem.nl/molsim/2023 )
MolSim-2023 is 2-week school that offers a program focusing on basic and advanced molecular simulation methods. It targets PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers who want to understand and apply these methods to study topics in physics, chemistry or biology. The program has an integrated and balanced structure of lectures and hands-on exercises. It offers a recap of the basic theory relevant for molecular simulation, followed by a thorough covering of basic and advanced simulation techniques. Modeling protic (aqueous) systems* will be a special focus area of this year's edition. All techniques will be accompanied by illustrative examples of present day research.
(Please be aware that we have no funding available)
The participation fee is 1350 Euro for participants from academic or related institutions.
The fee covers course materials, accommodation (you will share a room in a hostel, arrangements are made by the University of Amsterdam), meals (except for lunch and dinner on Saturday January 14, 2023), and coffee/tea during the school. It also covers the welcome event, a social event on Sunday, January 15 (including dinner), a poster session including food and drinks, and local transport costs for 12 days within Amsterdam.
The fee for local participants is 700 Euro.
If admitted** to participate in the school, we expect the participation fee to be paid within two weeks after admission. Admission will be approximately one week after registration closes.
Registration closes on November 9, 2022.
In case unforeseen regulations will restrict or prevent running Molsim2023 on-site, the program will be reconsidered and might run online-only, in a similar fashion as the 2021/2022 edition. This would substantially reduce the participation fee.
* Please note, that the initially annouced special focus on quantum computing will not be covered; this is related to a change in the program of the previous two (online) editions.
** Note, that the school typically is substantially oversubscribed. There are no indications that this will different for the 2023 edition. Therefore, keep in mind that application to the school does not automatically imply that you can participate.
