FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WORKSHOP
HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING
GRAND CHALLENGES IN STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY

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
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
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.
