Dear OpenMM community:


We have had to reschedule our February workshop to March 12-13.   Those
who have already registered should have received confirmations to attend
the workshop during the new dates.  If not, please contact me.


If you haven't signed up yet to attend,  there is still room.  We will be
highlighting OpenMM 4.0's new application layer that streamlines the
process for simulating and prototyping on GPUs.  There is no cost to
attend the workshop, but space is limited.   


Hope to see you in March!

Joy, on behalf of the OpenMM team




Simbios invites you to join us at its next Open Molecular Mechanics
(OpenMM) workshop.  

OpenMM <http://simtk.org/home/openmm>  is open-source software that
enables molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to be accelerated on high
performance computer architectures. It has demonstrated speed ups for both
implicit solvent[1] and explicit solvent simulations[2] on graphics
processing units (GPUs).  

And with the new application layer in its recent release, OpenMM will
allow non-programmers to easily and quickly run MD simulations and develop
custom algorithms on GPUs, while continuing to enable programmers to
integrate OpenMM into their own programs.




Where:  Stanford University

When:   Mar. 12-13, 2012  ***NEW DATES***


This workshop is designed for those interested in accelerating MD
simulations on GPUs and/or developing new MD algorithms that can
automatically be implemented and accelerated on GPUs.  No programming
background is required, though programming topics will also be covered for
those who are interested in them.

During the workshop, you will gain hands-on experience using OpenMM's new
application layer and application programming interface (API).  Learn to:

* Set up and run an MD simulation on your GPU using both PDB and AMBER

* Create a custom force to apply to your simulations

* Customize the simulation through Python scripting

You will also have time to work with the OpenMM development team on your
own research project.

Registration is free but required and spaces are limited. To register or
