Subject: 15.05.17 From Computational Biophysics to Systems Biology (CBSB2015), Oklahoma City, OK, USA 17-19 May 2015
Dear colleague,

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

"From Computational Biophysics to Systems Biology 2015 (CBSB2015)" 

which will take place at the SAMIS Education Center of the University 
of Oklahoma Health Science Center in Oklahoma City, OK (USA) on May 17-19, 2015.

*        There are opportunities for oral presentations, and                   *
*        students/postdocs are eligible for travel fellowships.                *
*        More details can be found below or at                                       *
*                                    *

CBSB2015 is organized in conjunction with the  University of Oklahoma and the
University of Central Oklahoma, and will continue a series of successful workshops 
that have been held since 2006 in both Europe 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 CBSB2015 will include folding and 
aggregation, protein-protein complexes, supra-molecular assemblies, cellular 
environments and interaction networks  A special session will be devoted to 
cancer related research..  

A list of confirmed speakers includes as keynote speakers:     

* Philip Bourne (National Institutes of Health)
* Ken Dill (Stony Brook University)
* Jose Onuchic (Rice University)

and as further invited speakers:

* Pradipta Bandyopadhyay (Jawaharlal Nehru University) 
* Robert B. Best (National Institutes of Health)
* Carlos Camacho (University of Pittsburgh)
* Alemayehu Gorfe (University of Texas Health Sciences Houston)
* Daisuke Kihara (Purdue University)
* Maria Kurnikova (Carnegie Mellon University
* Ruth Nussinov (National Institutes of Health)
* Wei Wang (Nanjing University)
* Guanhong Wei (Fudan University)
* Sichun Yang (Case Western University)

We especially encourage participation by students and postdocs, and we expect 
to offer financial support for selected students and postdocs on a competitive 
basis.  Five junior scientists (students and  postdocs) will be selected to 
receive a 

        "CBSB2015 Young Researcher Award"

which we expect to include a $400 travel fellowship and the opportunity to 
give a featured oral presentation.  Awardees will also be exempt from the 
registration fee.  Contingent on availability of funds, 10 additional 
junior scientists will receive travel awards of $200 each and free 
registration,  and will compete for  additional oral presentation slots. 

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

The registration deadline is April 15 to be considered for an oral or poster 
presentation. Acceptance letters and notifications of  fellowship awards 
will be sent out by April 22, 2015.

The registration fee is  $100 and has to be paid on site. 

Please circulate this announcement among your colleagues, students, and 
postdocs; and contact us with any questions you might have by sending 
email  to  cbsb15^-^
