TUTORIAL: "Modeling Supra-molecular Structures with LAMMPS" - JULY 9-13

hi everybody,

this is a reminder for the tutorial "Modeling Supra-molecular
Structures with LAMMPS" that will be held at Temple University in
Philadelphia on July 9-13 2018.

There is NO FEE for registration, but space is limited and there are
only a small number of seats left. If this Tutorial is interesting
and useful to you, we recommend registering well before the deadline.

This is a "self-organized", in-person event, i.e. you have to travel
to Philadelphia to participate, but there is NO travel or
accommodation support for participants and we cannot provide letters
for people requiring a visa to travel to the US.

Dates: Monday July 9 – Friday July 13, 2018
Location: Temple University Main Campus, Philadelphia PA
Application deadline: Tuesday May 1st, 2018
Application link: https://goo.gl/forms/tZl98iCWPT5YrzyN2

The Tutorial will feature lectures and hands-on exercises by the
following invited lecturers:
Andreas Bick (Scienomics, Inc)
Stan Moore (Sandia National Labs)
Stefan Paquay (Brandeis U)
John Stone (U Illinois, Urbana-Champaign)
Alexander Stukowski (Technische Universitat Darmstadt, Germany)
Pieter in't Veld (BASF, Inc)
and by several researchers from the Temple Materials Institute.

The goal of this Tutorial is to introduce participants into setting
up, performing and analyzing simulations with empirical potentials
using the LAMMPS molecular dynamics software, and showcase integrated
and external tools to set up simple and complex systems. Specific
sessions are dedicated to the visualization and analysis of simulated
structures and trajectories.

Techniques are introduced on specific software packages (LAMMPS, VMD,
EMC, OVITO, MAPS) but in most cases can be transferred to other
programs. Some experience with molecular simulations and knowledge of
statistical mechanics are required to take full advantage of the

The first part of the Tutorial will provide a quick review of basic
molecular simulation techniques and an introduction to the LAMMPS
input script language to set up simple simulation systems. Please note
that most advanced simulation topics (e.g. free-energy computations,
advanced material property computations, or QM/MM) will NOT be
discussed. The second part of the Tutorial will focus on tools to
build, visualize, and analyze non-trivial systems (well-entangled
polymer assemblies, phase-separated lipid membranes, and DNA origami).

Updates will be posted on the Tutorial webpage:

Thank you very much for your consideration, and we hope to see you in
