PRACE Autumn School in Bulgaria, 24-28 Sep

Posted on 26 July 2012

The National Centre for Supercomputing Applications-Bulgaria is pleased to announce the next PRACE Autumn School which will be on Massively Parallel Architectures and Molecular Simulations in Sofia from 24 to 28 September 2012.

Within a five day intensive event participants will be introduced to multi scales/multi physics molecular simulation methods and software for high performance computing applications in molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology research, cell medicine, immunology, chemical synthesis, atomic level material damage investigations and investigation of clusters of billions of nanoparticles.

Тhe School will focus on the following topics:

  • DL_POLY
  • Long-range interactions calculations
  • GROMACS
  • Massively parallel computers

Registration

To apply for a place please go to http://scc.acad.bg/ncsa/index.php/en/?option=com_content&view=article&id=183. The school is offered free of charge to students and academics. Lunches, coffee breaks and an evening dinner event will be provided. Please note that some knowledge of C, C++ or Fortran is a pre-requisite for this course. Attendance is limited to 40 places, and selection of participants will be based on demonstrated understanding in molecular modeling and computational science and high-performance computing.

Registration deadline: August 20, 2012
