CECAM workshop on Electrostatics in Concentrated Electrolytes
B. Rotenberg and S. Perkin, together with with A. Lee and P. Madden, are co-organising a CECAM workshop on Electrostatics in Concentrated Electrolytes. Ideas and results from NANOTRANS will be disseminated to participants (from 13 countries) at the workshop.

First UCI-ICS Workshop and Training Mini-Course on Computational Soft Matter, La Havana
Under the support of the III Scientic Conference of the University of Informatics Sciences (UCI) and of ICS at Forschungszentrum Jülich, the first UCI-ICS workshop was organized in La Havana. NANOTRANS ESR Aitor Martín-Gómez and PI Roland G. Winkler had the opportunity to present several mini-courses on Soft Matter as invited lecturers. Aitor presented the Implementation of the Multiparticle Collision Dynamics Approach, in which he outlined the multiparticle collision dynamics method, a particle-based mesoscopic simulation approach to account for hydrodynamic interactions. This highly-efficient method is useful to describe a fluid in combination with, in particular, molecular dynamics simulations of polymers.
