Welcome to the European Alchemical Free Energy Workshop on 27-28 May 2019.

If you are involved in drug design or biotech research, you may be familiar with the biennial Alchemical Free Energy workshops in the US. Based on the positive feedback from the workshop we co-organised in 2017, from this year, BioExcel, the leading European Centre of Excellence for Computational Biomolecular Research, follows up with a dedicated event with a high-level lineup of speakers from both academia and industry. The current event is hosted and organized by the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen.

Over the two days, the event will gather free energy calculation practitioners and method developers, both from academia and industry. In the spirit of similar previous workshops (2014, 2016, 2017, 2018), we are interested in hearing about use cases, pitfalls and their solutions, as well as challenges and possible paths forward for improvement.
