OxDNA users and developers workshop
We are planning to hold an oxDNA users and developers workshop in Oxford from September 2-5 2019. The aim of the workshop is to bring together both developers and users of the oxDNA and oxRNA models not only to share current research projects, but also to set the agenda for the future development of the oxDNA and oxRNA models, code and infrastructure, as well as to identify (and begin to address) current shortcomings. Particular foci are likely to be inter-operability of DNA design and simulation tools, user-friendly tools to improve oxDNA accessibility for non-expert users.
All attendees are welcome to give a short research presentation as part of the workshop.
Monday, Tuesday am: Short research presentations from all/most attendees. These will help to highlight the range of work for which oxDNA is being used, tools that have been developed, and wish lists for future development.
Tuesday pm: Discussion-based sessions to define the agenda for future development and to identify key targets and outline plans for implementation.
Wednesday, Thursday: "Hackathon": Begin to address the simpler targets (e.g. improve documentation of newer features, incorporation of existing external utilities into oxDNA infrastructure, develop and test simpler utilities). Make detailed plans for future development and collaborations. Users to get help in utilizing more advanced code features.
The programme is now available here
There are no registration fees. There will be a workshop dinner on Tuesday 3 September at Jesus College, and a wine-tasting event led by Domen Prešern on Wednesday 4 September at 8pm at Ard's home. There will also be the possibility to go on a Tolkien tour of Oxford led by Megan Engel.
A number of rooms (not en suite) have been reserved at The Queen's College on their main site. These would cost £57.60 per night. These rooms can be booked here. To access these rooms the code DOYE2019 needs to be entered before selecting the dates.
Bed and breakfast rooms at other colleges can be booked here.
We are grateful for support from the John Fell Fund.
