ESPResSo Summer Schools

Each year at the end of the summer (typically mid-October), we organize a one-week summer school at the ICP at Stuttgart University, Germany. The schools are typically free of charge, and in some cases we may even be able to support people from abroad.

The schools are sponsored by CECAM and the SimTech Cluster of Excellence at Stuttgart University.

Upcoming Summer School

Our CECAM school ESPResSo and Python: Versatile Tools for Soft Matter Research will take place on October 5-9, 2020 at the Institute for Computational Physics, University of Stuttgart.

The school focuses on the introduction of particle-based coarse-grained Molecular Dynamics simulation techniques for Hard and Soft Matter systems with the freely available software package ESPResSo. A wide range of topics will be covered. These include colloids, polymers, magnetic fluids, and active matter. Lectures will provide an introduction to the physics and simulation model building as well as an overview of the necessary simulation algorithms such as electrostatics and hydrodynamics solvers. During the afternoon, students will practice running their own simulations in hands-on sessions.

Registration is now open on the CECAM page. Accommodation information and the detailed summer school program will be made available soon.
