We present here molecular dynamics simulations of deeply supercooled SPC/E water confined in a cylindrical pore of MCM-41 silica material By a layer analysis of the tag particle density. correlators, we are able to extract the a-relaxation time of the mobile portion of the confined water. This relaxation time is the same as what can be extracted from neutron scattering experiments. From examination of the temperature-dependent behavior of the relaxation time and the dynamic susceptibility, we locate a dynamic crossover at T = (215 +/- 5) K and a corresponding peak in the specific heat, in agreement with experimental findings in confined water and simulations. of the bulk water. Our study demonstrates that the recent results of the experiments on confined water are extremely relevant for the comprehension of low-temperature bulk properties of water.
