Free Energy Calculations from Molecular Simulation: Applications in Life and Medical Sciences

31 May 2017, UCL, London UK

We would like to invite you to participate in our upcoming one-day CompBioMed/BioExcel meeting on Free Energy Calculations from Molecular Simulation on Wednesday 31st May 2017. This event is free to attend (the deadline for registrations is Friday March 31st 2017).

Call for Papers: in addition, we invite submissions for talks or posters to be presented at the meeting. Please follow the link below and send your forms to The deadline for submissions is Friday March 31st 2017.

In recent years, it has become possible to calculate free energies of various binding processes between compounds and proteins with high levels of accuracy and precision, as well as speed and reliability. This meeting will assess the state of the art, through the participation of leading practitioners from academia and industry who will discuss methods, applications and experimental validation.

Peter Coveney (UCL, London, UK)
Gianni De Fabritiis (UPF, Barcelona, Spain)
Bert de Groot (MPI, Goettingen, Germany)
Berk Hess (KTH, Stockholm, Sweden)
Erik Lindahl (KTH, Stockholm, Sweden)
