Registration now open for PRACE Spring School "HPC for Life Sciences"
10-13 April 2017, Stockholm
Researchers (from academia or industry) who work with molecular dynamics code and tools (such as NAMD, GROMACS, AMBER or VMD) are invited attend the PRACE "HPC for Life Sciences" Spring School, which is being run jointly by PRACE and the BioExcel Center of Excellence.
You will be given a comprehensive introduction to some of the widely used life sciences software that is available on one or more of the PRACE high performance computing (HPC) systems, as well as learning about the scalability of that software, performance issues, and best practices on HPC systems that have been observed during PRACE research activities (like the benchmark testing of NAMD and GROMACS). There will be plenty of opportunities for hands-on experience using the software, and you will also be able to meet many of the senior developers of some of the most famous molecular dynamics software packages.
