About the conference

Atomistic simulations of biological molecules are cutting-edge tools of contemporary research. Such simulations are being used in drug design, material sciences, nanotechnology and other applicative fields as well as in basic science disciplines.

The meeting will highlight state-of-the-art advances (including coarse-graining, QM/MM, and knowledge-driven molecular dynamics) and their applications to the study of biological processes and bio-machines at the molecular level. This interdisciplinary meeting aims to bring together scientists from fields as diverse as structural biology, biochemistry, physics and biomedical engineering and to facilitate mutual exchange of ideas, sharing of resources, and student education.
