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 Simulating energy materials with ESPResSo and waLBerla will take place on October 9-13, 2023 as a hybrid event.

In this school, students learn to conduct simulations in the fields of statistical physics and charged soft matter using the software ESPResSo. After an introduction to particle-based and lattice-based simulations, we will focus on the electrostatics of ionic liquids in confined geometries, the acid-base titration of polyelectrolytes using Monte Carlo reaction methods, the lattice-Boltzmann method for hydrodynamic interactions, and diffusion-advection-reaction solvers for electrokinetics and catalysis. Lectures will provide an introduction to the physics and simulation model building as well as an overview of the necessary simulation algorithms. During the afternoon, students will practice running their own simulations in hands-on sessions using ESPResSo with the help of developers of the software.

Registration is now open on the CECAM page.
