A two-day workshop on 'Monte Carlo simulation with DL_MONTE' will be held on 29th and 30th January at The Chancellors' Building, University of Bath. The workshop will include practical sessions and lectures, and topics to be covered include grand-canonical Monte Carlo, free energy methods, and how to use the general-purpose Monte Carlo simulation program DL_MONTE. On the afternoon of Day 2 we will have a flash presentation session where users can briefly describe their research applications of DL_MONTE (we hope this will provide us with feedback for the development of DL_MONTE).
The workshop will be held in room 5.13 of The Chancellors' Building, University of Bath.
Registration Participants must register in advance of the workshop at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/monte-carlo-simulation-with-dl-monte-tickets-82228701259 .
The workshop is free to attend, and lunch and refreshments will be provided. Note however that attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation.
