  Dear Colleague,

You may be interested in the following event:

  Faraday Discussion #169 - Molecular Simulations and Visualization 
            ** CALL for ABSTRACTS deadline 22.7.2013 **

A few more details:

Current biology, chemistry and materials science make extensive use of
computational methods ranging from applications at the cellular level, e.g.
in systems biology, to detailed atomistic simulations of molecular
assemblies, materials or small molecules.

Faraday Discussion 169 will illustrate and discuss the potential of
Human-Computer Interaction and Virtual Reality for computational
molecular sciences, focusing on the following themes:

* virtual and augmented reality; immersive molecular simulations 
* advanced visualization and visual analytics 
* computing power revolution and new algorithms: GP-GPUs, clouds and more
* applications and serious games: from docking to protein folding

Take part in the excellent scientific programme at this Discussion, in which
experts in biology, chemistry and computational science will stimulate
discussions and initiate research aimed at deeper involvement, beyond the
boundaries of each discipline.

Professor Helmut Grubmuller, Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Germany
Dr Graham Johnson, University of California, San Francisco, USA
Dr David Glowacki, University of Bristol, UK
Professor Valerie Daggett, University of Washington, USA
Professor Thomas Ertl, University of Stuttgart, Germany 
Professor Vijay Pande, Stanford University, USA 
Professor John Stone, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA 
Dr Melanie Stegman, Federation of American Scientists, USA 
Assistant Professor Jim Zheng, Medical University of South Carolina, USA
Professor Frederick Brooks, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA 
Professor Thomas DeFanti, University of California, San Diego, USA

Virtual Reality represents a formidable communication and learning tool that
could significantly speed up understanding of dynamic behaviour of complex
biomolecular systems. This meeting is an excellent opportunity to bring the
relevant disciplines closer together and benefit from collaborations across
diverse fields.

Yours sincerely,
 Marc Baaden
