When: August 23-28, 2020. The workshop starts on Sunday, August 23 at 8 pm (welcome reception), first lecture on Monday, August 24 at 9 am, and finishes on Friday, August 28 at 1 pm.


  • Lectures about background, philosophy and theory of coarse-grained models in general but mostly specifically about the Martini coarse-grained model.
  • Hands-on sessions where one can experience the aspects of the model, get practical experience with setting-up, running and developing new or refined Martini models. Experienced users are available for guidance and discussion.

Who: Anyone interested! However, we assume that you have a working knowledge of the Linux operating system and some experience on running MD simulations. The idea is that everyone, from beginner to experienced modeller will be able to work and progress on their own. Keep in mind that you will gain more from the workshop if you invest time in some modelling tools before the workshop starts. All hands-on exercises use a recent GROMACS version. We advise you to get some practice with GROMACS before the workshop, in this way you will spend more time on learning coarse-graining than on learning GROMACS.

Costs: The registration fee is 250 €. For this amount of money you will get coffee/tea during breaks (lunches are not included), drinks and snacks during the poster session, a workshop dinner, printed material and expert input during lectures and hands-on sessions. Travel and accommodation are your own responsibility. We have arranged special offers if you book your hotel early: www.martinihotel.nl . The hotel room will cost you at least 52 € per person per night (this is for a room shared by 2 persons, with breakfast, and incl. tourist tax).
