26 June 2008:
The opening symposium of the ACMM

We are happy to announce the formal opening symposium of the Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling on 26 June 2008. The symposium will be held in the KNAW building at the Kloveniersburgwal in Amsterdam. For this symposium we have invited a number international leading computational scientists who work on topics that span the entire range of length and time scales that is relevant for the ACMM.

Registration

The symposium is open to computational scientists, students, and anyone else with an interest in the ACMM. There is no registration fee, but registration is obligatory to ensure you a seat and lunch.
