Workshop Details
Algorithmic Development on Enhanced Sampling
07/14/2008 - 07/18/2008
Meeting Description:

Enhanced sampling is one of the most important issues in computational biophysics research. In recent years, there have been some significant progresses in algorithmic development for systems of interest to both physicists and biophysicists. Those methods are related in their mathematical foundations, but also different in their applications. Typical examples include recent development on various generalized-ensemble-based sampling methods including those using Wang-Landau sampling scheme. The impact on studying complex biological macromolecules of these advanced simulation methods has just begun to emerge. In many cases, such as in free energy simulation of biomolecular processes, those new methods have shown to be transforming in terms of speed of calculation and efficiency of sampling. Thus, we believe that it will be timely to put together a Telluride workshop for the top-players to exchange ideas and to discuss future directions.


FYI some general info about housing:
TSRC offers a wide range of lodging options. Single bedroom
accommodations with kitchen start at $675/week, and 2- and 3-bedroom condos start at $970 and $1160/week,
respectively. Some condos have 2 beds per bedroom, or also have a loft, which may be a good option for students and postdocs or anyone looking to save money. Condos range from Basic or Value to Luxury depending upon your preferences. TSRC also offers excellent hotel rooms through Camel's Garden Hotel and Ice House, with daily maid-service and other hotel style amenities.

If you wish to share a condo with one or more other TSRC participants, you should work this out in advance of registering. In particular, one person should be designated as the head roommate. The person chosen head
roommate must register first as the head roommate. Then the other roommates register, indicating the name of the head roommate. If you need email addresses of the other invited participants, contact your workshop organizer.
