Computer simulations play a major role in science nowadays. Together with Theory and Experiments it allows a better comprehension of natural phenomena by giving informations otherwise unreachable. Indeed, computer simulations are applied in almost every branch of science, from physics, chemistry and biology to the study of complex multidisciplinary problems, such as in material science.

Today Brazil has a large community of researchers who use computer simulations in the development of their research projects. In this context, the Brazilian Meeting on Simulational Physics has been held since 1997, agglomerating researchers from Brazil and abroad, working in the most diverse branches of physics. The first BMSP took place in Belo Horizonte in 1997, two years later the second BMSP was also held in Belo Horizonte. The third, fourth and fifth editions of the event were held in Ouro Preto in 2003, 2005 and 2007. In 2011, the sixth edition of the ? BMSP was held in Cuiabá, followed by the seventh in João Pessoa in 2013 and the eighth in Florianópolis in 2015. The ninth edition celebrated the 20th anniversary of the event in 2017 in Natal.

In this tenth edition the event returns to Minas Gerais and will be held in Belo Horizonte (opening)  and  Ouro Preto as a Satellite Meeting of the 27th International Conference on Statistical Physics, StatPhys 27, of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) that will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from July 8th through 12th, 2019. The X-BMSP will gather scientists specialized in simulation in the most diverse areas of physics, chemistry, biology and materials science, to present the latest advances in methodology and techniques applied to the study of problems through computer simulations. The event will also promote interaction among scientists working in this area, with the goal of advancing the methods and techniques available today. This topic covers the interests of researchers who traditionally have different experiences and belong to communities that share similar interests but have little communication with each other. Finally, this workshop will be an opportunity for the community working in this area in Brazil to interact directly with scientists of similar interests, coming from Brazil and abroad. In view of the wide variety of techniques covered, the event will promote pedagogical lectures given by two invited professors in the form of mini courses for students of various levels, as well as oral communications and panels to be presented by all invited participants and collaborators.

Informations for participants

As the meeting is approaching we would like to keep you up to date with the last arrangements. 

Contributed talks will de 15 minutes long with additional 5 minutes for questions and speaker exchange. Of course the program is still subject to modifications. 

We expect to have some cultural activities in the evenings that will be advised as soon as we can confirm them. 

We got a bus to make the transfer from Belo Horizonte to Ouro Preto on Monday afternoon (about 3:30 PM) and the return on Friday afternoon (about 2:00 PM). However, we have more registered participants than places in the bus, in such a way that we’ll have to allocate people in the bus in a first-come first-served basis. Preference will be given to invited and foreign participants. So, if you want to use this transfer, please complete the form available at (https://forms.gle/fTckWPsSSiv4RPM18) as soon as possible. If, for any reason, you fill up the form and give up take the bus, please contact us as soon as possible at xbmsp@fisica.ufmg.br. As soon as all places are filled a confirmation e-mail will be sent.

In Belo Horizonte the opening session will be at the Auditorio 3 of the Instituto de Ciências Exatas (ICEx) of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG). In order to help you find the meeting room we’ll put signs on the walls indicating how to get there from the main entrance. You can get directions to ICEx from the following link https://goo.gl/maps/gKbjjy1UKxBT3zr57.  

In Ouro Preto the event will take place in the Auditorio of the Historic building of the Escola de Minas (https://goo.gl/maps/cw1ky34azqmEj9cj6).
