CCL: Conference Announcement: Molecular Modeling Workshop, Feb 17-19, 2020 in Erlangen, Germany



 Sent to CCL by: Harald Lanig [harald.lanig-#-fau.de]
 Dear list subscribers,
 we are very delighted to announce this year’s
 “34th Molecular Modelling Workshop (MMWS)” (http://mmws2020.mgms-ds.de)
 that takes place on Monday 17th to Wednesday 19th February 2020
 at the Friedrich-Alexander-University in Erlangen, Germany.
 The MMWS has a long history of giving young scientists (especially
 graduate students) the opportunity to present their work and dive into
 discussions with each other and the "older experts" of the field to
 gain
 valuable feedback from academic as well as industrial colleagues. Oral
 and poster contributions are welcome from all areas of molecular
 modelling – from the life sciences, computational biology and chemistry,
 cheminformatics, to materials sciences.
 Starting with the scientific program on Monday after lunch should allow
 to avoid travelling on weekend keeping the expenses at a minimum. Once
 again the location changed - back to the roots we are now back again
 in the Organic Chemistry building at Henkestrasse 42.
 A hearty workshop dinner and a traditional joint evening in Erlangen’s
 Steinbach-Bräu brewery complement the scientific program. The workshop
 is organised by the German Section of the Molecular Graphics and
 Modelling Society (MGMS-DS e.V.).
 ####### Pre-conference Schrödinger workshop #######
 For the third time at our Molecular Modeling Workshop, Schrödinger is
 offering a pre-conference workshop entiteled "Structure-based Drug
 Design using the Schrödinger Suite". If you are interested in
 participating at the software session, please checkmark the
 corresponding field upon filling the registration form. Please note that
 this event is taking place at the CCC in Naegelsbachstrasse 25.
 ####### Plenary Speakers #######
 We are very happy to announce that five outstanding researchers accepted
 our invitation to present a plenary lecture at the Modeling workshop:
 Petra Imhof, Berlin
 “Recognition and specificity in protein-DNA interactions - insight from
 molecular simulations”
 Pavel Jungwirth, Prague
 "Electrons in Liquid Ammonia and in Water: From Blue Electrolytes to
 Bronze Colored Metallic Solutions"
 Barbara Kirchner, Bonn
 "Insights into ionic and molecular liquids and their interfaces from
 computational chemistry"
 Charles Laughton, Nottingham
 "Enhancing conformational sampling with machine learning"
 Birgit Strodel, Jülich
 "Modelling peptide aggregation influenced by in vivo conditions"
 ####### Poster and Lecture Awards #######
 As in the past years, there will be two poster awards of EUR 100 each
 and three lecture awards for the best contributed oral presentations:
 1st winner: Travel bursary to attend the Young Modeller's Forum in
 London, UK, plus a speaker slot option at YMF (travel expenses are
 reimbursed up to EUR 500)
 2nd winner: EUR 200 travel expenses reimbursement
 3rd winner: EUR 100 travel expenses reimbursement
 Only undergraduate and graduate research students qualify for the poster
 and lecture awards.
 ####### Registration and poster/talk submission #######
 Submit talks and/or poster titles via the registration form accessible
 on the workshop website https://mmws2020.mgms-ds.de/index.php?m=register
 The deadline for all submissions is January 24th, 2020.
 ####### General information #######
 Website http://mmws2020.mgms-ds.de will provide all necessary
 information about the meeting.
 We are looking forward to meeting you in Erlangen!
