Are there licensing issues with NAMD2 ?

Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.

NAMD is free for non-commercial use, but it is licensed. As with other licensed software, we ask our users to read through the license agreement that exists between the University of Illinois and HPCVL, and to sign a statement that they agree to abide by the terms of the license. The main issue in the NAMD case is that usage has to non-commercial.

Once we have received the signed statement (FAX to (613) 533-2015 is OK), we will enter the user to a Unix group namd which enables access to the software.
