Recent Advances in Modelling Rare Events

Recent Advances in Modelling Rare Events (RARE2017) Agra, India

Dates: December 07-10, 2017

Registration closed (on Oct.15)

RARE meetings are a series of International symposiums organised to discuss recent advances in modelling rare event sampling techniques for molecular simulations.  RARE2017 will take place in Jaypee Palace, Agra, India, from Dec. 07-10, 2017. First such meeting RARE2014 took place in Kerala, India, in 2014 and was hugely successful, attended by scientists and students from India, US and all over the world.

In order to develop new techniques to reliably predict thermodynamics and kinetics in molecular systems characterized by rare events, it is crucial that researchers working in this field meet and discuss the recent developments and the current challenges. In particular, significant and sustained activity in this field underscores the need for a periodic review of the recent progress in order to identify and target the key outstanding challenges. The RARE symposium will have an atmosphere that enables facile and fruitful discussions among people from different disciplines, including experts and young researchers. It will help form collaborations between scientists working on similar problems but in different domains of science and engineering.

We have invited leaders as well as upcoming scientists around the globe who are actively working on the development and applications of enhanced sampling methods, techniques for the computation of free energies of chemical reactions, statistical mechanics methods for equilibrium and non-equilibrium processes, reaction dynamics and energy flow, and machine learning techniques. Through oral and poster presentations, breakout and brainstorming sessions, this unique meeting will give an excellent opportunity for young researchers including PhD students and postdocs to interact freely with the experts.
