Summary: CALL FOR PAPERS
Molecular Dynamics Simulations: Methods and Applications
The 6th ASME International Conference on
Multibody Systems, Nonlinear Dynamics and Control
September 4-7, 2007
Las Vegas, NV, USA
The Technical Program Committee is sponsoring a symposium on Molecular Dynamics Simulations:
Methods and Applications at the 6th ASME International Conference on Multibody Systems,
Nonlinear Dynamics and Control, as part of the ASME International Design Engineering Technical
Conferences (IDETC 2007) in Las Vegas, NV.
The goal of this symposium is to present an overview of applications of molecular dynamics
simulations in biomolecular and materials modeling as well as recent methodological developments.
These methods may include, but may not limited to, multi-scale modeling, normal mode analysis,
reduced order modeling using rigid or flexible body representations, articulated multibody methods
and low order algorithms applied to molecular dynamics simulations, efficient force calculation
methods, efficient methods for calculating functional and structural properties, applications of these
methods or traditional molecular dynamics to novel biomolecular and materials modeling, reviews
of notable works in molecular dynamics, discussions on modeling challenges, software development
for molecular dynamics simulations etc. Papers are invited in these and other related topics.
