Workshop on Computational Biophysics of Atomic Force Microscopy – A Lecture Course Approach on Sep. 19-21

Computational and Theoretical Methods Applied to Atomic Force Microscopy – A Lecture-based Workshop

Objectives

Held jointly online (zoom) and in person a ‘Workshop on Computational Biophysics of Atomic Force Microscopy – A Lecture Course Approach’ will take place from Sep. 19-21 of 2022 within the symposium hall of the WPI-Nano Life Science Institute at Kanazawa University. The aim of the workshop is to introduce a wide range of computational and theoretical methods applicable to both simulating and analyzing Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) experiments. The described simulation approaches will range from coarse grained mesoscopic through to quantum-level descriptions. The described analytical methods will range from conventional analysis to machine learning approaches. A range of expert speakers have been invited  and the talks are structured such that each speaker has been given a thematic  brief. The first half of each lecture is meant to cover the background and history of that lecture topic at a teaching level suitable for an advanced postgraduate course/professional scientist level. The second half of each talk will involve a presentation of the scientist’s own work within the context of the field covered. Approximately eight months after the event, each speaker will be asked to contribute a 3 to 10 page review article on the background subject of their lecture and these will be published within a Special Issue of the IUPAB journal ‘Biophysical Reviews’ under the thematic title of ‘IUPAB Workshop on Computational and Theoretical Methods Applied to Atomic Force Microscopy – A Lecture-based Workshop’. The aim is to provide a comprehensive coverage of the different theoretical and computational methods used to describe AFM in a cohesive and rational manner such that the Special Issue derived from the workshop is a true resource rather than just a random collection of articles.
