Energy Landscapes: From Single Molecules to Soft Matter
Welcome to the web pages of the 2014 Energy Landscapes symposium and workshop.
The meeting will take place at Durham University in North East England (UK) and is the latest in a series previously held in Obergurgl (Austria), Chemnitz (Germany) and Telluride (Colorado, USA). This year, the meeting will be launched with an afternoon symposium, hosted by the Durham Centre for Soft Matter, before proceeding with the traditional informal workshop. Participants are encouraged to attend both the symposium and the workshop.
The meeting will cover the latest advances in energy landscape methodology and their application to soft matter, clusters, biomolecules and glasses. Energy landscape methods compute dynamic and thermodynamic properties based on a knowledge of the stationary points of the potential energy function. This approach has the ability to circumvent some persistent limitations of conventional simulations, making energy landscapes a powerful tool with a wide range of applications.
Social events will include a day-trip to the tidal island of Lindisfarne, a guided tour of Durham cathedral and castle, and the conference banquet at the College of St Hild and St Bede.
Wireless internet is available at the conference venue and at college accommodation in the University. Participants from universities that support Eduroam can connect using their own account and guest accounts will be provided for those who need them. Instructions on configuring your computer are available here.
