From 23 to 27 March 2015 the IAS School on "Computational Trends in Solvation and Transport in Liquids" will take place at JSC. This event is part of a series of Schools in Computational Science, which have been regularly organized at Jülich since 2000. More than 20 renowned scientists from seven countries will present lectures on modern methods and algorithms for treating solvents most efficiently on different time and length scales. The school is part of the activities of the Jülich CECAM node and is co-supported by the Cluster of Excellence RESOLV at Ruhr University Bochum.

"Solvation Science" is increasingly recognized as an important research field addressing a variety of different computational and simulation methods which were designed for scale bridging investigations of complex systems. Solvation and transport problems arise in many fields of application, ranging from fundamental problems in chemistry or soft matter physics to industrial processes. The IAS School 2015 will focus on computational trends, multimethod approaches and modelling in this interdisciplinary field. The full range from large-scale modelling on a coarse grain level down to fully quantum-mechanical simulations of liquids at the level of electrons and nuclei will be addressed. Not only bulk liquids and homogeneous solutions will be discussed, but also heterogeneous systems such as liquid/solid interfaces and solvated (bio)molecules.

The IAS School is intended for PhD students and PostDocs. Applications for participation can be sent until end of January 2015. Based on the required application documents, about 50 participants will be selected by the organizers. Details can be found at http://www.fz-juelich.de/stl-2015.
