Computer networking and molecular eyes

The opening talk will bring us into the micro- and nanoworld, where things like viruses or bacteria are extremely huge objects. It will be shown how these objects may recognize other objects, especially human cells. To be able to influence these nanoworld processes, e.g., to design new antiviral and antibacterial drugs, one has to be able to understand them on molecular and atomic level. Computer simulations and modeling may help substantially within this direction. However, coresponding calculations are usually very intensive and using a grid of computers via networking is a big plus.
