A one day meeting to discuss the use and development of dissipative particle dynamics DPD simulations. Although a variety of topics will be discussed, the main theme of the workshop is based around parameterisation to allow representation of real systems.

Invited speakers include:

Ignacio Pagonabarraga (University of Barcelona)

Martin Lisal (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic)

Andrea Ferrante (Novidec)

Patrick Warren/Massimo Noro (Unilever)
