Call for Proposals for 2024 Molecular Science Software Workshops!

The Molecular Sciences Software Institute is now accepting proposals for its 2024 Software Workshops. Proposed events should focus on software-related challenges relevant to the broad field of computational molecular sciences, including biomolecular and macromolecular simulation, quantum chemistry, and materials science. MolSSI workshops typically last 2-3 days and receive logistical and financial support from the Institute. Workshops may be held at locations convenient to the target audience, or we can provide assistance in identifying a venue or host the workshop at our headquarters in Blacksburg, Virginia.

We encourage participation from a diverse audience and representatives from academic institutions, industry, national laboratories, and the cyberinfrastructure community. MolSSI Software Workshop proposals will be reviewed promptly by the MolSSI Board of Directors using selection criteria based on (1) the relevance of the proposed workshop topic to the Institute’s goals; (2) the breadth of the impact across the molecular sciences; and (3) the strength and diversity of the participant list.

Proposal Requirements:

A complete MolSSI Software Workshop Proposal must include:

  • A workshop description, including motivation and relevance to the computational molecular sciences (maximum of two pages);
  • A list of potential speakers and participants that is broadly inclusive;
  • A proposed venue and anticipated budget.

The deadline for submitting your proposal is February 1st, 2024.
