The Center for Multiscale Theory and
Simulation, an NSF-funded Phase I Center for Chemical Innovation, is
pleased to announce that five $1000 travel fellowships are available for
under-represented minority undergraduate or graduate students to attend the
"Symposium on Coarse-graining and Multiscale Modeling in Complex Chemical
Systems". This Symposium will be held in Indianapolis from September 8-11, as
part of the National ACS meeting.
The Symposium aims to investigate the properties of complex fluids, important in many applications in biology and engineering, their development over a large range of length- and time- scales. This symposium focuses on both fundamental theoretical approaches that bridge different length- and time-scales in complex systems, as well as on novel computational approaches developed to speed up simulations through coarse-graining and multiscale modelling. Fundamental theories for the structure and dynamics of complex systems have a long and illustrious history. Recent years have witnessed the development of numerous coarse-graining approaches to simulate both synthetic and biological systems. Theory is guiding the choice of the variables to coarse-grain and the methodology of coarse-graining. The goal of this symposium is to showcase the state-of-the-art progress in this rapidly evolving field, and to encourage discussion among the scientists working on theoretical approaches that bridge the length- and time-scales important for describing the structure and dynamics of complex macromolecular systems, as well as coarse-graining methods and their applications. To apply for the student fellowship, please complete the application form, available here. Undergraduates must also send copies of their transcripts to Candice Lewis, firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline is June 15, 2013.
