University of Tennessee Conference Center
Downtown Knoxville, TN (USA)
June 3 through June 5, 2012

Dear colleague,

We would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming workshop on 
biological physics and systems biology entitled

"From Computational Biophysics to Systems Biology 2012 (CBSB12)"

which will take place at the University of Tennessee Conference Center 
in downtown Knoxville, TN (USA) June 3 through June 5, 2012.

There are opportunities for oral presentations and students/postdocs 
are eligible for travel fellowships. (See below for more details.)

CBSB12 is organized jointly by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, 
the University of Tennessee (Knoxville) and the University of Oklahoma, 
and will continue a series of successful workshops
that have been held previously since 2006 in both Germany and the USA.

As in previous years, the workshop aims to bring together expertise from 
physics, biology, and computer science to discuss current trends 
in computational biophysics and systems biology. Topics of CBSB12 will 
include folding and aggregation, protein-protein complexes, 
supramolecular assemblies, cellular environments and interaction networks.

A list of confirmed speakers includes as keynote speaker:

* Gregory Voth (University of Chicago)
* Ronald Levy (Rutgers University)

and as further invited speakers:

* Ioan Andricioaei (University of California, Irvine)
* Cecilia Clementi (Rice University)
* Jens Meller (Vanderbilt University)
* Julie Mitchell (University of Wisconsin, Madison)
* Celeste Sagui (North Carolina State University)
* John Straub (Boston University)
* Steven W. Rick (University of New Orleans)
* Collin Stulz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
* Doug Tobias (University of California, Irvine)

Further details about the workshop can be found at

We especially encourage participation by students and postdocs, and we 
are able to offer financial support for selected students and postdocs 
on a competitive basis.

5 students/postdocs will be selected to receive a

       "CBSB12 Young Researcher Award"

which includes a $450 travel fellowship, free registration, and 
the opportunity to give a featured oral presentation.

15 additional students/postdocs will receive a travel award of $250 
and free registration, and will compete for additional oral 
presentation slots. Another 20 students/postdocs will receive $100
to cover their registration fee.

All accepted applicants will be able to present their research in poster 

The *registration deadline is April 15* to be considered for an oral 
or poster presentation. Acceptance letters and notifications of 
fellowship awards will be send out by April 22, 2012.

The registration fee is $100 if paid by May 1st, and $150 after that.
