International Spring School for Graduate Students
30 (22 places left)
Students are added by instructors.
This International Spring School uses a BootCamp format to expose the students to intensive two weeks all-day of theoretical and practical knowledge acquisition. It is especially intended for PhD students, as well as for young Researchers or Professionals in the field, who wish to acquire state-of-the-art knowledge about the Statistical Thermodynamics foundations of Molecular Dynamic Simulations, including advanced techniques and protocols. General topics covered include classical mechanics, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, as well as advanced simulation techniques.
General and Specific Goals
Assistants to this course will receive an introduction to the theoretical foundations behind Molecular Dynamics, encompassing topics like thermodynamics, classic mechanics and statistical mechanics, including practical sessions where the students will apply the acquired knowledge.
Provide to the students with:
- Introduction to thermodynamics, classical mechanics and statistical mechanics
- Familiarization with advanced techniques in molecular dynamics simulations
- Emphasis on biomolecular simulation
- Free energy calculations
- Enhanced sampling
University degree in Chemistry, Physics, Biology or related areas

Workshop at CINV: Past and future of bio-molecular simulations and how to model ions dynamics in MD simulations
This one-day workshop will be held during Monday 16 at the Faculty of Sciences, Universidad de Valparaíso, and is intended to give the audience a critic revision of bio-molecular simulations and how ions are be modeled in MD simulations.
General Public Lectures will be given at both the Fundacion Ciencia & Vida and at the Centro Interdisciplinario de Neurociencia de Valparaiso (CINV).
