Dear ESPResSo users,

you are cordially invited to this year's ESPResSo summer school. 
Please find the announcement below.

Regards, Rudolf Weeber

Learn to simulate soft matter systems using ESPResSo and Python

Summer School
Active, Charged, and Magnetic Soft Matter Simulations with ESPResSo 
Date: Oct 7-11, 2019
Location: Institute for Computational Physics, University of Stuttgart, Germany

In this school, you have the opportunity to learn to conduct simulations in the
fields of statistical physics as well as soft and active matter using the
software ESPResSo (  After an introduction to
particle-based simulations and the simulation software, a wide range of topics
will be covered. These include colloids, polymers, magnetic fluids, and active
matter. Lectures will provide an introduction to the physics and simulation
model building as well as an overview of the necessary simulation algorithms
such as electrostatics and hydrodynamics solvers. During the afternoon, you
will practice running your own simulations in hands-on sessions.  Many of the
lectures and hands-on sessions will be taught by developers of the software.
The school will also provide a platform for discussion between developers and
users about the future of the software. Also, users can get advice on their
specific simulation projects.  The final day of the school will be dedicated to
research talks on projects that have been conducted using ESPResSo.

Espresso 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 and magnetostatics, hydrodynamics,
electrokinetics, as well as algorithms for active matter, rigid bodies, and
chemical reactions.
ESPResSo consists of an MPI-parallelized simulation core written in C/C++ and a
scripting interface in Python. This allows for good interoperability with other
scientific and visualization tools for Python.

The preliminary program of the school is attached to this mail.
To register, please go to

Attendance to the summer school is free. Unfortunately, we cannot offer travel
stipends. We recommend that you book your accommodation early, since there is
a fair (Canstatter Volksfest) at the same time.  We have blocked a few
inexpensive rooms in Stuttgart. If you are interested, please contact Henriette
Patzelt (address@hidden).
