2nd Conference on Multiscale Modelling of Condensed Phase and Biological Systems - CCPBioSim & CCP5
From Wednesday 13 April 2016
To Friday 15 April 2016

The collaborative computational projects for biomolecular and condensed matter simulation, CCPBioSim and CCP5, are holding a second international conference on the theme of multiscale modelling in Manchester, following on from the first held in January 2014.
