About MolSim2022

January 10, 2022-January 21, 2022

MolSim-2022 is a school that runs for 2 weeks, and 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.

Venue and setting

For the moment (early October 2021) we anticipate that the school can take place on-site at the University of Amsterdam without restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This reflects the current situation. One should be aware that there can be still restrictions to enter The Netherlands from abroad, to use public transport, to visit restaurants, or to stay at a hotel accomodation.
