Click here to register
Date: August 19th, 2016, 9am - 5pm
The LAMMPS tutorial will be followed by a symposium on Friday, August 19th 2016, sponsored by the Temple Materials Institute. The goal of the symposium is to provide an overview of the current state of the art of MD simulations in materials research with a series of invited talks and a poster session.
Confirmed symposium speakers include: Nir Goldman (Lawrence Livermore National Labs), Arthi Jayaraman (University of Delaware), Stan Moore (Sandia National Labs), Steve Plimpton (Sandia National Labs), Tim Sirk (US Army Research Lab), Priya Vashishta (University of Southern California), Ed Webb (Lehigh University)
Participation at this symposium is offered at no cost thanks to sponsoring by the Temple Materials Institute. Advance registration by August 1st 2016 is appreciated, and required for presenting a poster.
Molecular Dynamics for Modern Materials with LAMMPS
Dates: August 15th - 18th, 2016
Click here to apply (Deadline: June 1st, 2016)
Tutorial faculty: Steve Plimpton, Stan Moore (Sandia National Labs), Richard Berger, Giacomo Fiorin, Axel Kohlmeyer, Chris MacDermaid (Temple University), Ed Webb (Lehigh University), Tim Sirk (United States Army Research Laboratory), Arun Srikant Sridhar (Drexel University).
This event is offered at no cost to participants thanks to all tutorial faculty volunteering their time and being supported by their home institutions, and by a generous contribution from Scienomics. Registration is required. Due to limited available seats, an application form and questionnaire must be filled out. Preference will be given to applicants that fit the intended target audience and will result in a balanced, motivated class. Accepted participants will be given the opportunity to present a poster at the symposium following the tutorial (see below). Some familiarity with the theoretical foundations of MD simulations (for example from studying: Frenkel, Smit: Understanding Molecular Simulations), as well as some basic C/C++ and python programming knowledge are beneficial.
If you need a sign language interpreter, closed captioning, or other
accommodations please notify us by August 1st.
