3rd Conference on Multiscale Modelling of Condensed Phase and Biological Systems - CCPBioSim & CCP5
From Monday 21 May 2018
To Wednesday 23 May 2018

The collaborative computational projects for biomolecular and condensed matter simulation, CCPBioSim and CCP5, are holding a third international conference on the theme of multiscale modelling in Manchester, following on from previous events held in 2014 and 2016.

The 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.
