In January 2017, the school MolSim-2017 took place at the University of Amsterdam. The school hosted PhD and postdoc students working in the field of molecular simulation. MolSim-2017 was organized by the Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling.

  • Who: ACMM (Amsterdam Center for Multiscale Modeling) 
  • Where: University of Amsterdam
  • When: January 9-20, 2017

Molsim-2017 Program

The program consists of morning sessions with lectures, and afternoon sessions with hand-on exercises. There was a poster session organized, and during the weekend a social event.
