IAS Winter School: Hierarchical Methods for Dynamics in Complex Molecular Systems

From March 5 to 9, 2012, the IAS Winter School and CECAM tutorial "Hierarchical Methods for Dynamics in Complex Molecular Systems" was held at Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC). It was organized by the Jülich CECAM node and continued the successful series of biennial Winter Schools at JSC. The focus of this year's School was on hierarchical methods for dynamics in hard and soft materials, biomolecular systems, flow simulation and transport. The programme was complemented by lectures on advanced methods (fast algorithms for DFT on modern HPC, multigrid QM/MM approaches, accelerated MD methods), numerical software for supercomputers and an introduction to parallel computing followed by a hands-on programming session.

The scientific programme was compiled by Johannes Grotendorst, Godehard Sutmann, Gerhard Gompper (Forschungs- zentrum Jülich), and Dominik Marx (Ruhr-Universität Bochum). Leading scientists in computational physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics presented lectures for 50 PhD students and young postdocs from eleven different countries. During poster sessions the young scientists were encouraged to present their own research in short oral presentations and to discuss methods and results at the poster.

The lecture notes of the school have been published as volume 10 of the IAS series. The volume is available either as hard copy or as PDF files on the web
