Invitation to the ESPResSo Summer School 2017

Our summer school  “Simulating Soft Matter with ESPResSo, ESPResSo++ and VOTCA” will take place on October 9-13, 2017 at the Institute for Computational Physics, University of Stuttgart.

The school consists of lectures and hands-on sessions, both for beginners and experienced users and developers of ESPResSo, ESPResSo++ and VOTCA. Furthermore, there will be a poster session, where participants have the opportunity to discuss their projects with the other participants and the speakers, and a number of scientific talks where scientists will present recent research projects that were done with any of the software packages.

With regards to ESPResSo, special emphasis will be put on the new Python interface, simulating systems with hydrodynamic and electrostatic interactions and active matter.

For details, and for registration, please see:
