Stradbroke Island, Brisbane Australia

A small school/retreat on classical molecular dynamics simulation 
techniques will be held from the 8th to the 12th of September 2008. The 
retreat has been organized as a satellite setting the WATOC (World 
Organization for Theoretically Orientated Chemists) conference to be 
held 14-19th of Sept., Sydney, Australia.

The retreat is primarily targeted at PhD and postdoctoral students who 
are using or want to use simulations in their studies.  It is aimed more 
at people who want to learn more about how to use MD as opposed to 
people who are already expert.

The lectures include Wilfred van Gunsteren (ETH, Zurich), Siewert-Jan 
Marrink (University of Groningen), Volker Knecht (MPI, Berlin) and Alan 
Mark (university of Queensland). The school will cover both the basics 
of MD simulations as well as a range of more specialized topics such as 
simulations of membrane systems, peptide folding and free energy 

The retreat will be held at University of Queensland's Morton Bay 
research station which is on Stradbroke Island just off the coast from 
Brisbane which has enabled us to keep the cost quite low. It is timed to 
end in time for the students to attend the young scientists forum of 
WATOC in Sydney.
