Aim and Scope

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the state of the art in Brownian Dynamics simulations of biological macromolecules and related technologies. The aim is to bring together leaders in the field and younger scientists, to discuss informally how to push the boundaries of these technologies. Participants will include theoreticians and experimentalists. Speakers are encouraged to present work in progress and discuss speculative ideas. The program will include introductory lectures on essential theoretical aspects followed by talks on current research, discussion on critical issues, poster sessions, plus tutorials and demonstrations of simulation software.
