COLLOQUIUM ON COMPUTATIONAL BIOMOLECULAR SCIENCE
11-13 September 1997
Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering
We are pleased to invite you to attend the NAS "Colloquium on Computational
Biomolecular Science," to be held in Irvine, California, September 11-13, 1997.
The Colloquium is intended to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion across the
areas of biomolecular structure, function, and evolution, and to point to ways
in which computation can help to explore the interfaces among these areas.
Attendance will be limited to about 200 participants. A diverse group of
speakers will provide points of departure for the discussion, but ample time
will be allowed for general and informal elaboration. The speakers will include
Peer Bork (EMBL, Heidelberg) Wen-Hsiung Li (Univ. Texas, Houston)
Douglas Brutlag (Stanford) Alexey Murzin (MRC, Cambridge)
William Eaton (NIH) Jose Onuchic (UCSD)
Ron Elber (Hebrew Univ) Gregory Petsko (Brandeis)
Hans Frauenfelder (Los Alamos) Robert Sauer (MIT)
Elizabeth Getzoff (Scripps Research Harold Scheraga (Cornell)
Institute) Klaus Schulten (Illinois)
Philip Green (Univ. Washington) Rebecca Wade (EMBL, Heidelberg)
Angela Gronenborn (NIH) Arieh Warshel (USC)
Michael Levitt (Stanford)
The meeting is planned to extend from the late afternoon of September 11
(registration and a light dinner/reception), through September 13, so that
participants can depart early on September 14. The meeting will be held at
the Academy's conference center in Irvine.
