You are cordially invited to the CECAM Flagship School "Simulating the
dynamics of soft matter with ESPResSo, PyStencils and LbmPy", taking
place in Stuttgart, Germany, from October 10-14, 2022.
In this school, students learn to conduct simulations in the fields of
statistical physics, soft matter and active matter using the software
ESPResSo. It is an open-source particle-based simulation package with a
focus on coarse-grained molecular dynamics models. In addition, it
offers a wide range of schemes for solving electrostatics,
magnetostatics, hydrodynamics and electrokinetics, as well as algorithms
for active matter and chemical reactions.
After an introduction to particle-based simulations and the software
interface, we will focus on the dynamics of soft matter. We will explore
topics such as electrophoretic mobility of colloids, diffusion of
polymers, and studying rheology using Lees-Edwards boundary conditions.
In addition to particle-based approaches, we will cover the
lattice-Boltzmann method for hydrodynamic interactions and a
diffusion-advection-reaction solver for modelling electrokinetics and
catalysis. Lectures will provide an introduction to the physics and
simulation model building as well as an overview of the necessary
simulation algorithms. During the afternoon, students will practice
running their own simulations in hands-on sessions.
Many of the lectures and hands-on sessions will be taught by developers
of the software. Hence, the school will also provide a platform for
discussion between developers and users about the future of the
software. Moreover, users can get advice on their specific simulation
projects. Time will also be dedicated to research talks, which
illustrate how the simulation software is applied, and which provide
further background in the field of soft matter dynamics.
Attendance to the summer school is free of charge. To register, go to
https://www.cecam.org/workshop-details/1146 and write a short motivation
and CV. This school is predominantly planned as an onsite event, with
lectures and talks streamed live on Zoom for participants who cannot be
physically present. If you select online attendance, please mention in
your application whether you are interested in participating to the
online hands-on sessions.
