               Florida State University, 24-27 January 1992
                         Tallahassee, Florida

  

Sponsors:

  Presentations will be  given by the following computer companies that are 

designing massively parallel computers with Teraflop capabilities : 


    Cray Research                Kendall Square Research 

    IBM                          Thinking  Machines 

    Intel


  Presentations will be given also by the following agencies on their 

role and policies regarding the new High Performance Computing Initiative:

            NSF   NIH   DOE    


  The aim of the workshop is to bring together the leading scientists 

from academia, industry, and government agencies to discuss the role of 

large-scale parallel computing in Theoretical Structural Biology.


  The scientific focus of the workshop will be on structure/function 

relations in  biological macromolecules such as proteins and nucleic
  
acids and will include:  

(1) structure determination and the protein folding problem

(2) molecular recognition / drug design, and
  
(3) catalysis, i.e. enzyme reaction mechanisms and electron/proton

    transfer processes.      



ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

  The number of participants is limited to 150-200.  The registration fee is 

$250.00 which will cover: (a)  welcoming  reception, (b) 3 breakfasts, 

(c) 3 lunches, and (d) one  dinner. The workshop will be held over a weekend 

so that airfares  will be quite reasonable, $350.00 - $500.00 for 21 days 

advance purchase. The hotel rate is $54 (single or double occupancy) per night.

  The organizers would like to encourage participation of graduate students 

and post-doctoral fellows. We hope to be able to provide some financial 

support to a selected number of individuals of this group.

  There will be at least one poster session during the workshop. Please 

indicate below if you would like to give a poster.
