his 90th birthday later this year. Dr. Scheraga pioneered the use
of computers in chemistry and biology. His work inspired many of
the research areas that are the topic of this meeting, ranging from
biophysics to systems biology. In the spirit of Harold Scheraga's
work, we aim at bringing together researchers from physics, chemistry,
biology, and computer science to acquaint each other with current
trends in computational biophysics and systems biology,
to explore avenues of cooperation, and to establish together
a detailed understanding of cells at a molecular level.
This meeting is the fifth in a series of workshops of the same name
organized in both Germany and the USA. Its main focus will be on:
- Protein folding and aggregations
- Multi-protein complexes and supramolecular assemblies
- Cellular environments and interaction networks
- Models, Algorithms and Computers
CBSB11 will explore new approaches for connecting research at
these different levels of structure and complexity; and will
evaluate progress in computational methods, algorithms,
software and hardware in these target areas.
The workshop will act as a platform for in-depth discussion of cutting-edge
research results obtained by international scientists at all levels in their
careers. Invited talks will highlight recent algorithmic developments in and
successful applications of high-performance computing to life sciences.
A limited number of contributed talks and poster sessions
will allow participants at an early stage of their career to discuss
their ongoing research and to put it into the context of the workshop.
