Multiscale Modelling of Condensed Phase and Biological Systems
From Tuesday 07 January 2014
To Thursday 09 January 2014

The collaborative computation projects for biomolecular and condensed matter simulation, CCPBioSim and CCP5, in association with the Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society, are holding an international conference on the theme of multiscale modelling in Manchester.

This three-day event will bring together leading researchers from biological and materials chemistry to discuss topics of common interest across the spectrum of electronic structure, atomistic and mesoscopic scales and to address the current and future challenges posed by multiscale modelling.
