An IUSSTF sponsored event on "Recent Advances on Modeling Rare Events: Methods and Applications" in Kumarakom, Kerala, India.
Indian PI - Nisanth N. Nair, Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur
US PI - Mark E. Tuckerman, Department of Chemistry & Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University
Development of molecular simulation algorithms to model rare events is an active field of research. Many of the interesting processes such as chemical reactions, phase transitions, nucleation, protein folding and conformational changes in molecules are examples of rare events in computer simulations. Modeling of such processes are still challenging today and novel methods have to be designed to overcome the problems related to limited sampling. The three day Indo-US bilateral meeting on ``Recent Advances in Modeling Rare Events: Methods and Applications’’ during May 29 - June 1, 2014 at the Backwater Ripples Resort, Kumarakom (Kerala) will bring experts from U.S.A. and India to discuss the latest progress in this field. This meeting will have technical talks followed by detailed discussions involving scientists working on various domains of molecular simulation. Participants will conduct elaborate discussions following each technical sessions to exchange knowledge and to review the current advances and open problems. The meeting is expected to catalyze mutual collaborations across the two nations and motivate to undertake grand-challenging problems in chemistry, biology and material science. The symposium will be also a good arena for the young participants to interact with the experts.
