The training course on Computational Methods for Complex Molecular Systems was held at the Crowne Plaza Edinburgh - The Roxburghe Hotel in Edinburgh, UK during May 17-19, 2014. The hands-on tutorial gathered a number of Master and PhD students as well as postdocs from France, Germany, Spain and Belgium.
The tutorial explored physical models and computational approaches used for the simulation of bio/nano systems and the investigation of their function at an atomic level. The two-day course was based on a number of practical exercises, which have been done with MBN Explorer. In particular, the case studies of atomic clusters and nanoparticles, biomolecular systems, nanomaterials, crystalline systems, nanofractals, thermo-mechanical properties of materials, and multiscale phenomena were discussed.
The tutorial was held under the financial support of the COST Action MP1002 Nano-IBCT.
