The course is organized in a way to alternate lectures (typically in the morning) and practical sessions (typically in the afternoon).

Both lectures and practical sessions will be held in English. The lectures are public. 

The practical sessions will give participants the opportunity to learn practical molecular modeling tools and test them in concrete cases.

Access to the practical sessions is reserved to official School participants. Participants will have to bring their own laptops, though upon request we can loan computers for the sessions.

The School Team will support participants to prepare the computers for the practical activities.
