Uni Wien

Systems Chemistry Winter School 2016

4 – 8 November 2016 in Vienna, Austria

The COST action CM1304 — Emergence and Evolution of Complex Chemical Systems — invites for their international winter school on computational systems chemistry taking place in Vienna, Austria, from 4 – 8 November 2016 under the auspice of University of Vienna, the COST action CM1304, and the new KLI.


The Systems Chemistry School offers an intensive 5 days introduction to modern computational systems chemistry for experimentally working scientists from all levels. It will provide theoretical background and hands-on experience that will help to setup a theoretical and computational foundation for experimental work in the area of systems chemistry.

Targeted Audience

Experimentally working scientists from all levels (Phd students, postdoctoral and senior researchers, etc.).
If you are from a formal background and would like to study the exciting methods listed below in more detail, you are welcome as well.


The program consists of seven courses, each providing the theoretical background and two sets of practical exercises using selected tools. The teaching will consist of a mix of lectures and hands on exercises with a strong focus on educating the participants on how to apply the learned modelling approaches and software tools to concrete example problems. A wide range of modeling techniques ranging from discrete to continuous and from deterministic to stochastic approaches will be covered by the summer school program.

The planned topics are (subject to change):

Optional topic: Self-assembly and rule-based modeling (kapa, BioNetGen, SR-Sim): Students learn how to setup and simulate a rule-based model and how to simulate self-assembly processes with it in 3D space.
