Dutch Molecular Dynamics Meeting

4 November 2010

This meeting aims at bringing together researchers working on (bio) Molecular Dynamics in the Netherlands, following the Dutch saying: "Beter een goede buur dan een verre vriend" (Beter a good neighbor than a far friend). Colleagues from the groups of Prof. Bolhuis (Amsterdam), Prof. Hilbers (Eindhoven) and Prof. Marrink (Groningen) will give an overview of the work done in their groups. However, participation is open for researchers from other groups as well.
