The OpenMM team invites you to join them at an OpenMM JamboreeIntroduction to OpenMM
OpenMM is open-source software that enables molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to be accelerated on high performance computer architectures. It has demonstrated speed ups for both implicit solvent and explicit solvent simulations on graphics processing units (GPUs) (see benchmarks).
OpenMM has an application layer that allows non-programmers to easily and quickly run MD simulations and develop custom algorithms on GPUs. It is also a software library, enabling programmers to integrate OpenMM into their own programs.Jamboree
The OpenMM Jamboree is a unique event where participants have the opportunity to engage deeply with OpenMM experts and developers on their particular OpenMM project for two solid days. Focused goals for the two days may include (but are not limited to):
The stimulating environment and access to OpenMM experts enable you to accelerate the progress on your project.Schedule
The workshop will be held August 22-23, 2013. The majority of the time will be open working time, with scheduled presentations from the participants at the beginning of the event and a brief update on OpenMM plans at the end of the event. Breakout lectures on common topics of interest will be given depending on participant needs and interests. See the tentative agenda for more details.
The workshop will be held at Stanford University and is free to attend. However, registration is required and spaces are limited.
Preparing for the WorkshopsFor the workshop, attendees are expected to bring their own laptops with OpenMM and any other software needed for their project already installed.
