par Secretaire - 12 juin 2017

WINTER SCHOOL, ALGORITHMS IN STRUCTURAL BIOINFORMATICS : COMPUTATIONAL PROTEIN DESIGN

26 NOVEMBER - 1 DECEMBER 2017 INSTITUTE FOR SCIENTIFIC STUDY, CARGESE (CORSICA), FRANCE https://algosb2017.sciencesconf.org/


We are pleased to announce the 5th edition of the Algorithms in Structural Bioinformatics (AlgoSB) winter school. The aim of AlgoSB is to introduce advanced methods in Structural Bioinformatics in the largest sense, giving special attention to interdisciplinary approaches. This year’s focus will be on Computational Protein Design. The school will take place at Cargèse on the French island of Corsica in the Mediterranean sea, from November 26 to December 1, 2017.

PROGRAM Each day’s course consists of a lecture in the morning followed by a practical session on the participants’ computers in the afternoon. The topics of the classes are the following (details at https://algosb2017.sciencesconf.org/) :

I Introduction to computational protein design and accurate energy models Thomas Simonson (Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France) II Advanced combinatorial optimization methods for protein design Thomas Schiex (INRA, Toulouse, France) III Flexible backbone protein design Tanja Kortemme (UCSF, San Francisco, USA) IV Evolutionary design of functional proteins Yang Zhang (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA) V Exploration and characterization of energy landscapes to assess protein design strategies Juan Cortés (LAAS-CNRS, Toulouse, France) Frédéric Cazals (INRIA, Sophia-Antipolis, France) Charles Robert (LBT, IBPC, Paris, France)

VENUE The Algorithms in Structural Bioinformatics school will take place on the beautiful French island of Corsica in the Mediterranean sea, at the Institute for Scientific Study of Cargèse (IESC) on the coast north of Ajaccio.

AUDIENCE The AlgoSB school is targeted towards PhD students, postdocs, and junior researchers from public research institutions and industry, both in France and internationally. This school is limited to 30 participants. It is expected that all will participate for the duration of the school.

APPLICATION A one-page application (pdf format) should be sent by e-mail to algosb-coordinators@laas.fr with the Subject "AlgoSB application”. The application should provide a mini-vitae or a pointer to the full vitae, a brief presentation of the applicant’s research interests, and a description of how the offered courses can benefit their work. Details may be found at https://algosb2017.sciencesconf.org... Application deadline : September 22, 2017
