  • MARVEL School on Variationally Enhanced Sampling

    from 14 to February 17 2017 at Università della Svizzera italiana (USI), Lugano

    This MARVEL school will cover the use of variationally enhanced sampling for obtaining free energies and kinetic rates both from classical and ab initio molecular dynamics. Other methods such as metadynamics will also be covered. Focus will be made on the use of these methods for applications related to materials science. The school will include hands-on tutorials using PLUMED 2 with various molecular dynamics codes.
