Software for molecular simulations and trajectory analysis
We are proud to introduce version 3 of CAMPARI. This is a big step from version 2 primarily due to the comprehensive OpenMP (threads parallelism) support and due to significant improvements in both usability and performance. We have also again added a number of new algorithms from the recent literature, and CAMPARI of course continues to support the ABSINTH force field paradigm and implicit solvation model. CAMPARI is a joint package for performing and analyzing molecular simulations, in particular of polymers of biological relevance. It focuses on a wide availability of algorithms for (advanced) sampling and is capable of combining Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics sampling in seamless fashion. CAMPARI offers the user a very high level of control over all implemented features. For more information and features, please refer to the project's homepage at http://campari.sourceforge.net. Version 2 is no longer actively maintained but the final version continues to be available.

Virtual Radiation Detection and Measurement Laboratory Software
Radiation detection and measurement education is necessary for a wide variety of people working with radiation. The equipment and laboratory setup needed for delivering this education are expensive and difficult to assemble due to the large variety of the type of experiments that are desirable to cover. For a basic education one needs to have gamma, beta, alpha and neutron sources, at least one detector to detect each type of radiation and other supplemental instrumentation to perform experiments. Although the radiation exposure due to these radioactive sources in an education laboratory is low, shielding and a private secured place is needed. Nearly two hundred thousand dollars is needed to construct such a basic laboratory described as above. In order to overcome these difficulties, a model of a basic Radiation Detection Laboratory has been created to provide a virtual environment for designing and simulating such experiments.
