SAMSON School 2017 is dedicated to users and developers interested in SAMSON, a novel software platform for computational nanoscience. For its second edition, the SAMSON School takes place in Valpré Lyon, France, from 19 to 23 June 2017.

  • Date : 19/06/2017 to 23/06/2017
  • Place : Valpré Lyon, France
  • Organiser(s) : Stéphane Redon, chercheur Inria, Nano-D team leader ; Sophie Azzaro and Imma Presseguer, organization team

SAMSON software platform makes it possible to rapidly build nanometric structures (nanotubes, proteins, nanosystems) and run interactive simulations of chemical reactions, graphene sheets bending, proteins (un)folding.
Developed by the Nano-D research team, SAMSON is used in material science, life science, physics, electronics, chemistry, and even education.

SAMSON Connect is finding a growing interest amongst users and developers and has just crossed the 1,000 beta testers.

SAMSON School 2017 program is aimed at users and developers and is divided into two independent parts ; you may register to either part, or both:

  • Users program: from Monday 19 at 10:30 am to Wednesday 21 at 2pm
    • lectures and practicals: setting up SAMSON, core functionalities, current most popular modules, advanced modules for interactive simulation
  • Developers program: fom Wednesday 21 at 10:30 am to Friday 23 at 2pm
    • lectures and practicals: setting up the SAMSON Software Development Kit, developing your own modules, new apps, simulators, visual representations, property calculations, etc.
