Isn't there a gromacs-symposium at CSC (Finland) in february? David
should know, since he's speaking there.

As an experienced gromacs-user I would not be interested in tutorial
stuff, but mainly in presentation and discussion of research results,
algorithm development as well. Tutorials make me fall asleep. There
could be a more intensive seminar program involving in-depth
explanation for those desiring tutorials.  Or even better something
like a workshop, but then you have to organize computers.  Such could
of course be done by internet before the meeting, using - wild idea -
a chatbox or so to answer possible questions.

I think something during the university terms is preferential.
