A wide range of complex problems in chemistry, physics, biology and engineering can be studied and understood at the molecular level thanks to the explosive growth of powerful supercomputers and simulation methods. The knowledge of thermodynamics, dynamics and structural properties of systems at molecular level allows the design of better strategies to solve problems in those fields.
The aim of this meeting is to promote the field of molecular simulations among the Mexican community and to learn about its state-of-the-art methods and their applications. The meeting is an opportunity to exchange results with researchers from other countries. This year the speakers come from Mexico, USA, Germany and England. The conferences will cover subjects from simple fluids to chemical reactions. Introductory courses on molecular simulation methods will be given the first day of the meeting. A Poster session is also programmed.
Applications go from efficient sampling methods, parallel molecular dynamics, hydrocarbons, liquid crystals, colloids, surfactants, water in different environments and proteins in solution. Participants to the meeting include undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers from different universities.
