Room I.23, University of Science, 227 Nguyen Van Cu, Dist. 5
are cordially invited to
Workshop on Recent Advances in Computational and Experimental Molecular
will be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, April 14th, 2017.
the International Conference on “Multiscale simulations in complex biomolecular
systems: linking computations to experimental validation”, on April 10th–12th,
2017, in Hanoi, this workshop is organized to strengthen the ties between
Vietnamese and international colleagues, and, at the same time, to foster a
number of concrete research collaborations.
meeting will allow researchers from all over the world to discuss cutting edge
research in biomolecular simulation and molecular medicine. The
discussion will foster new collaborations with Vietnamese scientists from Ho Chi Minh City
and will allow students to interact with highly distinguished scientists.
talks of the scientists are tailored so as to be understood by a
non-specialized audience, so that everybody attending the meeting will be able
to understand the major advances in science presented at the conference.
workshop will be hosted by the University of Science, a member of Vietnam
National University – Ho Chi Minh City (VNUHCM-University of Science).
