The Mainz Materials Simulation Days are by now an established series of biennial meetings organized by the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.
The topic of the 2019 meeting is "Exploring Complex Free Energy Landscapes: Structure/Function Formation, Multiscales, and Long-timescales", with special focus on the development and applications of free energy methods and enhanced sampling methods.
Apart from invited talks there will be available slots for contributed talks. There will also be a poster session, with a poster prize sponsored by Advanced Theory and Simulations (Wiley-VCH).
The event will take place Wednesday, June 5 - Friday, June 7, 2019, at the Staudinger Lecture Hall of the MPI for Polymer Research. We will start around lunchtime on June 5 (Wednesday) and end around lunchtime on June 7 (Friday).
See below for information about registration and abstract submission (deadline May 10, 2019).
This is a CECAM Node event. The webpage of the workshop can be accessed here. (Due to ongoing issues with the CECAM website should registration and abstract submission be done directly with organizers, see below.)
