The school “Particle-based Simulations for Hard and Soft Matter” will take place at the Institute for Computational Physics at the University of Stuttgart October 10th-14th, 2016. The school covers particle-based simulation and visualization software developed in the “SFB 716” research cluster of the German Science Foundation, namely
* Espresso (http://www.espressomd.org)
* Imd (http://imd.itap.physik.uni-
* Pasimodo (http://www.itm.uni-stuttgart.
* Megamol (http://www.vis.uni-stuttgart.
There will be both, lectures and hands-on tutorials. Regarding Espresso, the school is a great opportunity to get started with the software, learn about the underlying principles, and discuss development projects with other developers. Beginning with the next release of Espresso, Python will be the default interface language.
Therefore, this year’s Espresso-related lectures and tutorials will be based entirely on the Python interface of Espresso, so the school is also a good opportunity to get to know the new interface.
