EPJ B Topical Issue: Recent progress and emerging trends in Molecular Dynamics

Submissions are invited for a Topical Issue of EPJ B dedicated to the theme of Recent progress and emerging trends in Molecular Dynamics.

EPJB is proud to announce the future publication of a Topical Issue devoted to “Molecular Dynamics”. Molecular Dynamics was first described in a celebrated article by Alder and Wainright published in 1957, and, ever since then, its use has been growing rapidly; it is now a commonly used tool across many branches of science, including physics and chemistry as well as biology and geology. The Guest Editors feel that a topical issue devoted to Molecular Dynamics is now timely and appropriate. On the one hand, it is a way of celebrating such a widely used (and useful) technique; on the other, it is also a good opportunity to present current trends, outstanding issues, and possible future directions.

Aspects to be covered in this special issue include (but are not limited to) machine learning, rare events, non-equilibrium methods, adiabatic separation, numerical algorithms, quantum dynamics and complex phenomena. The aim is that papers in this special issue provide a comprehensive perspective of current uses as well as limitations of Molecular Dynamics, highlighting also possible avenues for future developments.

Prospective authors are warmly encouraged to consider submitting their work on Molecular Dynamics for this Topical Issue. We invite interested authors to communicate their intention to submit manuscripts for this Topical Issue to the Guest Editors as soon as possible, providing a tentative title and a short abstract of their contribution. The full manuscripts should be submitted before the deadline directly to the EPJB Editorial Office at https://articlestatus.edpsciences.org/is/epjb.

Deadline for submission: March 31, 2021

Submissions should be clearly identified as intended for the Topical Issue "Recent progress and emerging trends in Molecular Dynamics". Papers will be published continuously and will appear (as soon as accepted) on the journal website. The electronic version of the Topical Issue will contain all accepted papers in the order of publication. All submitted papers will be refereed according to the usual high standards of the journal. More general information about EPJB including instructions for authors is available at http://epjb.epj.org/.
