CECAM Tutorials at JSC in September
Since 2010, Forschungszentrum Jülich has been an integral part of the node structure of the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire, which consists of the central organization in Lausanne and now 18 nodes in Europe and Israel. Since that time, Jülich has organized workshops, tutorials and programmes of visits on a regular basis. In September 2013, two tutorials will be offered at JSC.
The first one, on Fast Methods for Long-Range Interactions in Complex Particle Systems, from 9 to 13 September, focuses on providing an overview of algorithms and methods for treating long-range interactions in computer simulations of particle systems. During this school, the scalable library ScaFaCoS, which is the product of a BMBF-funded Germany-wide network project, will be used to give examples, and participants are encouraged to bring their own simulation codes in order to include the ScaFaCoS functionality. For details, see http://www.fz-juelich.de/fcs-2013.
The second school on Multiscale Modelling Methods for Applications in Materials Science, from 16 to 20 September, is co-organized by KIT Karlsruhe and Forschungszentrum Jülich and focuses on a topic which is rapidly evolving. Courses will be given on research including a range of mutually coupled methodologies to overcome limitations induced by various length and time scales in the physical problem. The tutorial is closely related to the FP7-funded project MMM@HPC and will introduce different methods, ranging from ab initio to coarse grain techniques, and will provide insight into modern workflow design and simulation tools during the hands-on sessions. Further details can be found at http://www.cecam.org/workshop-871.html.
Both tutorials are still open for applications.
