Date: 30 June - 3 July 2010 Location: Edinburgh, UK
This meeting will address formulation issues, numerical methods, and the implementation of algorithms for probing molecular models, especially multiscale simulation methods. We will bring together mathematicians and computer scientists with physical scientists, to accelerate the transfer of theoretical methodology mathematical ideas into applications.
Specific Themes

Note: it is anticipated that the meeting will be wider than these topics, but many of the invited presentations will be focussed on these issues.

Multiscale formulation of molecular problems, e.g. path sampling algorithms
Adaptive and parallel algorithms
Methods for finding reaction pathways, free energies and rates
Sampling methods based on dynamics and stochastic dynamics
Nonequilibrium methods
Applications to biomolecules

Date: 23-26 June 2010 Location: Trondheim, Norway
Computational physics is by now arguably a third branch of physics besides theoretical and experimental physics. The CCP Conference is a yearly conference dedicated to presenting an overview of computational physics as it evolves and expands. Every three years it is taking place in Europe: Granada in 1998, Aachen in 2001, Genoa in 2004 and Brussels in 2007 are among previous European locations. CCP2010 will take place in Trondheim, Norway from June 23rd till June 26th, 2010.

The conference will cover computational physics through a series of plenary talks which together will form a broad and accessible overview of the field. There will also be a series of parallel sessions, which each is meant to present as fully as possible a sub branch of computational physics.

Date: 30 May - 4 June 2010 Location: Gargnano Lago di Garda, Italy
Self-assembly and hierarchical structure formation spanning multiple length scales is a common property of biological materials. Also advanced enginee-ring materials exhibit a complex hierarchical microstructure from molecular to macroscopic length scales.
The underlying physics and chemistry linking structure formation processes across multiple length scales is largely unexplored. Often small changes on the molecular length scale cause dramatic effects on much larger length scales, as examples from biology show.
Further topics covered by the conference include self-healing and self-adaptive materials, biomaterials, multi-block copolymers forming spatially complex structures, the dynamics of structure formation and non-equilibrium phenomena, morphological description and properties of hierarchically structured materials.
The conference will bring together experts from different fields of polymer science and provide a forum for discussion of common physical principles causing hierarchical structure formation in polymeric materials.

Structure formation mechanisms and self-assembly
Physical properties and biological function
Medical and bioengineering applications
Structure and morphology characterization

Date: 6-31 July 2009 Location: Les Houches

The goal of the summer school is to present to students and researchers an integrated view of new trends and challenges in physical and mathematical aspects of biomechanics. Emphasis will be given on continuum theories and models for biological systems, essentially based on continuum mechanics, fluid or solid and their interaction. The school will be organized around 4 principal themes addressing both state-of-the-art theoretical (physics, theoretical mechanics, mathematics) aspects and applications. The main field of applications will be in the biology of the cell, plants and microbes, and in physiology.
