Dear Colleague,

In January 28-30, 2009, we will organize a Coarse Graining Workshop in 
Helsinki, Finland. The workshop will deal with large-scale simulations 
of biological and soft matter systems.

In addition to topics related to coarse graining in general, the 
workshop also strongly focuses on the (coarse grained) MARTINI model 
used together with the GROMACS simulation suite. The MARTINI model has 
become one of the most promising simulation tools for studies of 
phenomena and processes taking place in biological and soft matter. The 
invited speakers include many of its key developers such a Siewert-Jan 
Marrink and Alex de Vries.

The Workshop includes invited and contributed talks complemented by 
hands-on exercises and tutorials, where the exercises (focusing on the 
MARTINI model) arranged in the afternoon are supervised by the lecturers 
and their group members acting as assistants. The applications 
considered by the MARTINI model will focus on lipid and protein systems, 
with partial work also addressing carbohydrates. The number of 
participants for the hands-on exercises is limited.

For registration and more information of the workshop, please see:
