MolSim-2021 is 2-week school that offers a program focusing on numerical techniques for the study of properties of many-particle systems.
This year's edition will be offered fully online. 

The school targets PhD and postdoctoral researchers who want to learn these techniques to study topics in physics, chemistry or biology. The course may also be followed by advanced MSc students. It offers a recap of the statistical mechanics relevant for molecular simulation, and addresses basic and advanced simulation techniques including Monte Carlo, molecular dynamics, free energy calculations, rare events, coarse graining.
The school will have as special focus areas path sampling methods for rare-event simulation. These will be covered with special sessions, including a hands-on part for setting up path sampling for various type of activated processes, by experts in the field (Titus van Erp, NTNU, NO; Peter Bolhuis, University of Amsterdam, NL).
All techniques will be accompanied by illustrative examples of present day research.
