Conferences & Meetings
For information on upcoming conferences and meetings that are relavent to physics of living systems research, see the items below.
"PoLS Conference" -- Maryland, July 2015
More information on this conference will be posted soon.
" "Hands-on" Workshop on Computational Biophysics" -- Atlanta, GA, November 3-7, 2014
Join fellow scientists at this "Hands-on" workshop in Computational Biophysics! This workshop will explore physical models and computational approaches used for the simulation of biological systems and the investigation of their function at an atomic level. Topics covered include: using VMD and NAMD, applications of VMD and NAMD in modern research, force fields and parameterizing new molecules, simulating membrane proteins and ion channels, free energy calculations, and the use of Molecular Dynamics Flexible Fitting (MDFF) for modeling biomolecular structures based on cryo-EM density maps. Lectures in the morning will by followed by hands-on tutorials.
This will be in the IBB - Suddath room

" Atlanta Biophysics Symposium" -- Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013 at Emory University
We would like to announce the upcoming "Atlanta Area Molecular and Cellular Biophysics Symposium", to be held on Saturday, Dec. 7 at Emory University. We have a distinguished lineup of speakers from local universities and also will have a poster session for postdocs and grad students (with prizes!). A full schedule along with the registration page can be found here: http://bit.ly/ATLBPS . We kindly ask that you bring this to the attention of your colleagues and students working in these areas.
If there are any questions, please feel free to let us know!
