Dear colleagues,

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 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.
