2nd Conference on MODELING OF PROTEIN INTERACTIONS IN GENOMES
June 27-30, 2003, Stony Brook, NY

*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***

The conference focuses on computational procedures for reconstruction
and study of the network of connections between proteins in genomes.

The sponsors are: National Science Foundation and State University of

Vajda (Boston University).

PROGRAM topics:

PROTEIN-PROTEIN DOCKING
(structure prediction and binding simulation)
ENERGETICS AND PROTEIN STRUCTURE-FUNCTION RELATIONSHIPS
(energy landscapes, stability of complexes, functional assignment of
protein structures, binding site prediction)

IDENTIFICATION OF INTERACTIONS AND PATHWAYS
DISCUSSION: New directions at CAPRI and further developments

PARTICIPATION

The number of participants is limited to 100. In selecting
participants,
the preference will be given to those who would have a presentation
on
the subject of the conference. If you would like to attend the
conference, please submit a request as soon as possible, by e-mail
only,
to Ilya Vakser (vakser at ams.stonybrook.edu) or Sandor Vajda
(vajda at enga.bu.edu). Include a brief (a few sentences) description of
your research, your full affiliation, position (faculty, postdoc,
student, etc.), address (email and regular), and the day-time phone
number. If you would like to give a talk or present a poster, please
include a half-page abstract. We will start contacting prospective
participants after April 27 to let them know whether their
application
is accepted. If your application is accepted, we will communicate
with
you regarding the details of registration, accommodation, and travel.

The early registration fee for the participants of the conference
will
be $250 ($150 for postdocs and students). Limited funds are available
to
support the participation of postdocs and students. The postdocs and
students, who wish to be considered for the financial assistance,
should
indicate this in their application. The assistance will be provided
in
the form of reimbursement of travel expenses, after the conference.

The details of the conference will be posted at the conference web
site,
http://reco3.ams.stonybrook.edu/conference2003, which will be
regularly
updated.
