The Summer School 2015 will take place at Manchester University, July 12 - July 21 2015. Organised by CCP5 and sponsored by the CECAM organisation,
this School is intended for newcomers to the science of molecular simulation and will provide a comprehensive introduction to the methodology, practical sessions on computational methods and examples of the power and versatility of simulation methods.

As in previous Summer Schools, the first five days of the course will cover the basics of molecular simulation and the remaining four days will be devoted to more advanced courses.
Course notes will be provided. In addition to the course lectures, practical sessions will take place in which students will undertake relevant computational exercises.
