Molecular Simulations Workshop

We are pleased to announce the fourth edition of our annual Molecular Simulation Workshops, which will take place on May 30, 2023 at the Agile Strategy Lab at NJIT.

Building on the success of our previous three workshops held in 2018, 2019, and 2022, we are excited to bring together a diverse group of researchers who are actively engaged in molecular and atomistic modeling. We started to organize this workshop in 2018 for only NJIT students, later extending it to Rutgers. This year, we would like to welcome researchers from other universities in the region. We are delighted to see new faces and engage in meaningful discussions that will contribute to the advancement of this field.

The workshop has lined up four keynote presentations by invited speakers who are experts in the field. In addition to the keynote presentations, we will have two electronic poster sessions that are open to all participants. Posters will be displayed on LCD Displays (do not need to print anything, we are environmentally friendly). Before each poster section, we provide a short time for presenters to give a pitch to introduce their research and invite other attendees to view their poster.

We encourage all interested researchers and students to register for the workshop and join us for a day of learning, sharing, and networking. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our invited speakers this year are:
Prof. Jerelle A. Joseph, Princeton University
Prof. Nav Nidhi Rajput, Stony Brook University
Prof. Robert Riggleman, University of Pennsylvania
Prof. Peter Ravikovitch, ExxonMobil
