CECAM Workshop – Challenges in modeling and simulations of nanoparticles in complex environments

May 29, 2019 to May 31, 2019


CECAM-IT_SIMUL, Italian Institute of Technology – Genoa, Italy


  • Zoe Cournia (Academy of Athens, Greece)
  • Adam Pecina (Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italy)
  • Marco De Vivo (Istituto Italiano di Technologia, Italy)



 Nanoscale Horizons


 Nanoscale Advances

and more.


Practical information: 

The deadline for registration is April 12th (with final answers given on April 30th)

Our workshop will host ~20 invited talks of 35 min (including Q&A). In addition to planned poster session, a few slots (~5) for short talks of ~25 min are available. If you would like to present your results, please mention your preferred format (contributed talk or poster) with your application.


This workshop will focus on the current challenges in computational simulations of nanoparticles, including their functionalization, from catalysis (nanozymes) to membrane interacting nanoparticles. In addition, the workshop will take advantage of several experimentalists working on nanoparticles interacting with materials and biological environment. Ultimately, we will discuss and debate on how computational methods can further evolve to build novel tools for a deeper understanding of nanostructures and nanomaterials.

Sessions will focus mainly on the methodological improvements for studying nanoparticles and their interaction with complex realistic environments, including protein membranes. We will discuss our models and approaches with experimentalists throughout the workshop’s sessions:

  1. Nanoparticles and membranes
  2. Functionalized Nanoparticles
  3. Experiments meet simulations for nanoscience
  4. Nanoparticles for health and technology
