We are pleased to announce our annual summer molecular dynamics training event:

  Molecular Dynamics for Modern Materials with LAMMPS,

is an intense 4-day tutorial for using the LAMMPS molecular dynamics
software. The tutorial is to be held at Temple University main campus in
Philadelphia, PA on August 15-18 2016 and is now open for registration.
(this the week *before* the fall 2016 meeting of the American Chemical
Society, also in Philadelphia).

The tutorial provides an in-depth introduction to basic functionality
and features of LAMMPS and standard simulation protocols for a wide
variety of MD applications with a focus on modeling materials properties
for fundamental research and engineering applications. No previous
knowledge of LAMMPS is required, but some familiarity with concepts of
MD and statistical mechanics are expected. The tutorial is divided into
a series of lectures by LAMMPS and MD experts in the mornings and
hands-on sessions supervised by experienced LAMMPS users in the

Lecturers include LAMMPS core developers Steve Plimpton and Axel
Kohlmeyer, and MD simulation experts Giacomo Fiorin and Chris MacDermaid
from Temple's Institute for Computational Molecular Science. For a full
list of the tutorial faculty, please see the tutorial homepage at:

Please note that there is NO FEE to attend this tutorial, there is
no travel support, there will be no meals provided. Space is limited
to about 70 participants. Registration is required and includes a
short questionnaire to help select participants, should there be
more applications than available seats. The registration deadline
is June 1st, 2016.

For any questions regarding participating in the tutorial,
please contact Chris MacDermaid at

The tutorial is followed by a 1-day symposium

Molecular dynamics of materials from assembly to fracture

on Friday, August 19th, 2016 from 9am to 5pm in Temple University's
Science Education and Research Center (SERC), also on the main
campus in Philadelphia, PA. This symposium is sponsored by the
Temple Materials Institute with a program of invited speakers and
a poster session.

Registration for this symposium and to present posters is forthcoming,
but accepted participants of the tutorial are pre-registered and will
be given the opportunity to present a poster during the symposium's
poster session.

We hope to see you there!
