About the conference ...
The Asian continent has a rapidly growing community of researchers interested in molecular simulation techniques. Responding to the change, in 2016 ICMS is being expanded into a major international conference following three successful meetings previously held in Japan. The organizing committee of ICMS 2106 consists of experts from Japan, Korea, Singapore, Australia, China Taiwan, and China and the advisors of ICMS 2106 are from some of the best research institutes in the world. ICMS-2016 aims to bring together the international community to share ideas and facilitate collaborations amongst researchers in diverse fields. The conference accepts abstracts under six major themes: (1) theory and method development, (2) soft matter, (3) solid-state materials, (4) biomedical and pharmaceutical systems, (5) nanomaterials and (6) industrial applications. ICMS-2016 will be held in Shanghai, China, from from October 23rd to 26th, 2016.
Special issue of Molecular Simulation for ICMS 2016
We hereby announce that a Special Issue of Molecular Simulation: The 4th International Conference on Molecular Simulation will be published for ICMS 2016. Prof. Huai Sun from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, chair of organising committee of ICMS 2016, will serves as guest editor for the special issue. The tentative deadline for manuscript submission is February 1, 2017.
All conference attendees are encouraged to submit studies for publication in this special issue. The details of Molecular Simulation can be found on the journal webpage.
More information about the Special Issue of Molecular Simulation for ICMS 2016 will be announced later.
Best Poster Awards
The organizing committee has decided that student participants in the poster session will be eligible to receive a financial award. In recognition of novel and excellent research work, awards will be given to twenty student participants. Each award comes with an honorarium of CNY 1,500.
Workshop on ReaxFF -- Methods, Applications and Challenges
Shanghai Jiao Tong university will organize a workshop focused on ReaxFF on Oct 27th, 2016 for ICMS 2016 participants in order to promote the application and development of molecular simulation and force-field method in the related fields such as chemistry, engineering and material science. Reactive Molecular Dynamics is an advanced simulation technique for atomistic-level modelling chemical reactions. The workshop will discuss the theoretical background and methods of ReaxFF and further cover the topics of reactive force-field parametrization, simulation data analysis and enhanced sampling methods.
Visa application for entering China
Attendees who are not Chinese citizens need to apply for a visa to enter China. Please contact the Chinese Embassies or consulates in your country for more information regarding a visa application.
The ICMS organization committee will help you for preparing materials for visa application. Once registration information is complete and the conference fee has been paid, a visa letter will be available for download with an official seal will be issued from ICMS 2016 and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
