Dear Robert, 

Promising indications of FES convergence are multiple recrossing of 
no changes in the FES profile (relative energies) by  further extending the 
metadynamics sampling. 
and with WT-MTD the going to zero of the hills' height.
Should not be hard to find more in depth discussions on this topic in the
