If you are one of the people that will be at Super Computing 99 in
Portland, OR next week, we urge you to stop by the National
Coordination Office booth and take a look at the interactive molecular
dynamics that we are doing using our Visual Molecular Dynamics software
program, VMD, our molecular dynamics simulation engine, NAMD, and
BioCoRE, our collaboratory for structural biology.

Our demonstration will consist of the following:

- A component of BioCoRE will be accessed via the web to start a
molecular dynamics NAMD simulation running on the computers in

- VMD will then connect to this component and "attach" to one of these
running simulations.

- Next, the haptic device will be used to interactively "steer" the
simulation.  We plan to try and let attendees "steer the sodium ion!"

The National Coordination Booth is booth number R102 and is located
just south of the NCSA booth.  We look forward to seeing you there!
