CECAM-Lorentz call

CECAM and the Lorentz Center annually organize a call to attract scientists who want to organize a computational science workshop. Every other year the workshop will be held at the Lorentz Center in Leiden or at CECAM HQ in Lausanne.

The CECAM-Lorentz program plans to host a leading-edge workshop in computational simulation and modeling and its application in molecular simulations and related areas. Otherwise, the topic is open. 

What we seek
• an innovative scientific program, that takes us beyond our current boundaries
• an open and interactive format, with few lectures

What we offer
• a 5-day workshop for up to 25 people 
• travel and accommodation reimbursements and other organizational costs
• a professional support organization

The next call will be open in October 2024.
