Subject: 16.05.28 Second Polish-Korean Conference on "Protein Folding: Theoretical and Experimental Approaches"
The Second Polish-Korean Conference on "Protein Folding: Theoretical and Experimental Approaches" Conference web page: http://pkc2016.ug.edu.pl/ Time: May 28 (Sat ) - June 1 (Wed), 2016 Place: Lezno Palace near Gdansk, Poland Investigating the folding and misfolding of proteins and other biological molecules is of utmost importance in the post-Genome era because of its role in the functioning of the living cells. Protein misfolding can lead to cancer and hereditary diseases; designing effective therapies and drugs against such diseases is one of the long-term goals of the research on protein folding. This research requires extensive collaboration between biochemists, biophysicists, chemical and theoretical physicists, theoretical chemists, and bioniformaticians. The researchers from the University of Gdansk, Poland, and Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS), Republic of Korea are very active in protein-folding research and the two institutions have a long-time history of collaboration in the field. This collaboration prompted the idea of organizing a series of conferences held in Seoul and in Gdansk, on an alternating basis, to promote scientific collaboration and exchange between the scientists of the Republic of Korea and Poland, as well as other countries in Asia and Europe, on protein folding and related fields. The first conference of the series was held from May 24 to May 28 in Seoul (http://lee.kias.re.kr/insilico/workshop/1st_KIAS_Gdansk/main.html). Topics Covered: Protein folding, thermodynamics & kinetics of folding, physical principles of folding, protein structure and function, structure prediction, protein misfolding, aggregation & diseases, protein evolution, protein networks, protein-protein interactions, protein-ligand interactions, sequence design, protein modeling and simulation, including all-atom and coarse-grained force fields and algorithms. Invited Speakers: Philippe Derreumaux (Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique CNRS, Paris, France) Yi He (Cornell U, USA) Changbong Hyeon (KIAS, Rep. of Korea) Keehyoung Joo (KIAS, Rep. of Korea) Andrzej Kolinski (U of Warsaw, Poland) Maciej Kozak (Adam Mickiewicz U, Poland) Igor Konieczny (U of Gdansk and Medical U of Gdansk, Poland) Kunihiro Kuwajima (U of Tokyo, Japan/KIAS, Rep. of Korea) In-Ho Lee (KRISS/KIAS, Rep. of Korea) Jooyoung Lee (KIAS, Rep. of Korea) Weontae Lee (Yonsei U, Rep. of Korea) Haiguang Liu (Beijing Computational Science Research Center, P.R. China) Victor Munoz (Centro de Investigaciones Biologicas, Madrid, Spain) Antti Niemi (Uppsala U, Sweden) Stanislaw Oldziej (U of Gdansk and Medical U of Gdansk, Poland) Sylwia Rodziewicz-Motowidlo (U of Gdansk, Poland) Masaki Sasai (Nagoya U, Japan) Chaok Seok (Seoul National U, Rep. of Korea) Adam Sieradzan (U of Gdansk, Poland) Joanna Sulkowska (U. of Warsaw, Poland) Magdalena Slusarz (U of Gdansk, Poland) Martin Zacharias (Munich Technical U, Germany) Organizing Committee: Cezary Czaplewski (U of Gdansk) Jooyoung Lee (KIAS) Adam Liwo (U of Gdansk) Artur GieÅdoÅ (U. of Gdansk) - conference secretary Mariusz Makowski (U. of Gdansk) Language: The official language of the conference will be English.
