GCT hosted A Summer School on Advanced Molecular Dynamics Simulation

Green Club of Thoughts(GCT) along with the Department of Physics, Kathmandu University and Department of Chemistry, IISER Pune, India has organized a two-week long summer school on advanced molecular dynamics simulation starting from July 5th to July 16th. The top experts of the field have provided both the concepts and application of molecular dynamics simulation through specialized classes, hands-on tutorial sessions and guest lectures. One hundred and fifty six early career faculties, PostDocs, graduate students and young researchers from 12 different countries and more than 30 different institutions including Kathmandu University Nepal, Indian Institute of Technology India, University of Casablanca Morocco, University of Technology MARA Malaysia, Sogang University South Korea, High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) Japan and United Arab Emirates University UAE have participated. 

Thirteen eminent professors of the field including Prof. Narayan Adikari from Nepal, Prof. Alexander D. MacKerell Jr. from USA, Prof. Arnab Mukherjee from India and Prof. Nolan Kane from University of Colorado, Boulder, USA have provided specialized classes. Similarly, fifteen teaching assistants from Raman Research Institute, IIT Bombay, CUSAT, Kathmandu University,ICTP Italy and other organizations have facilitated hands-on sessions.


Welcoming the participants Prof. Mukherjee enlightened the importance of the school on the field of molecular dynamics, and its impacts for early career researchers.The school has offered access to HPC facilities (both CPU and GPU) for the following month to familiarize and train with the concepts taught in the school.
