The fourth edition of the Molecular Simulation and Engineering workshop was due to take place in September 2020. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, it has been postponed to Friday, 24 September 2021. It will take place at the Politecnico di Milano, but with additional possibility of online attendace (also for presenters). The invited speakers will be Michele Parrinello, Alberto Giacomello, Marcella Iannuzzi and Alejandro Franco.
In the meantime, throughout the winter and spring of 2020/2021, a limited number of online seminars have showcased current developments and applications of molecular simulation to engineering problems (details and links for attendance/registration of each event will be published here in due course):
16 October 2020, 11:30. Nicola Marzari (EPFL, CH): "The great acceleration in the design and discovery of novel materials"
29 January 2021, 11:30. Enrico Masoero (University of Newcastle, UK): "Coarse grained kinetic simulations of chemo-mechanical processes at the nano-to-micro mesoscale"
26 March 2021, 11:30. Sauro Succi (IIT@La Sapienza, IAC-CNR and Harvard University): "Simulating Dropland: computational design of exotic soft mesoscale materials"
21 May 2021, 11:30. Martin Lisal (Czech Academy of Science, CZ): "Generalised energy-conserving dissipative particle dynamics with reactivity: A coarse-grain method for simulations of energetic materials"
16 July 2021, 11:30. Cristian Micheletti (SISSA): "Designing molecular knots”
The workshop and the online seminars are organized and sponsored by the CECAM-IT-SIMUL node of the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire, in collaboration with the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering "Giulio Natta" of the Politecnico di Milano.
