DL_POLY's 25th anniversary Special Meeting

Venue: Chicheley Hall, Chicheley Road, Newport Pagnell MK16 9JJ (details).
Date: 3rd November 2017


The event was organised to celebrate the DL_POLY project anniversary and its successes with former and current project contributors and stakeholders.

Molecular Simulation Special Issue

To celebrate the project anniversary we have organised a Molecular Simulation special issue "DL_POLY: Twenty five years of molecular dynamics evolution".  The papers will be refereed and will focus on modelling, methodology or numerical/algorithm/software developments related to or carried out with the help of DL_POLY (or its spinoffs DL_MULTI, DL_MESO_DPD).  We are looking for high standard unpublished research as well as new angle reflections and summaries of recently published research (with appropriate citations and acknowledgements to originally published work)

The submission deadline is at the end of January 2018.
