Not really - a single structure tells you nothing. Individual simulations
should sample conformational ensembles that are representative of their true
behavior. Only if you have evidence that individual simulations produce
reasonably similar *distributions* of structures do you have reason to claim
convergence. Again, there is a lot that you have to show to prove you've converged.
