Description: This short meeting will feature a collection of introductory talks addressing computational techniques for studying relaxation processes and molecular structure of glasses. PhD students are especially encouraged to attend. The meeting will be preceded by a sandwich lunch and coffee in the Mathematics Common Room (JCMB 5212) at 12:15. Registration is free for both the talks and lunch, but we ask you sign up using the form linked below so that we may keep track of numbers.
