4th Protein Biophysics at the end of the world
1-4th October 2019 | Montevideo | Uruguay
Save the date! The registration to this event is free for all attendees. There are fellowships available.
The event was conceived as an initiative of young researchers from South America to push forward a growing community in the area of protein folding, structure and dynamics in that region of the world. Its main objective is to bring together computational and experimental researchers, undergraduate and graduate students from different areas of Structural Biology, Bioinformatics, Biochemistry and Biophysics in order to unify the different visions in the study of the field. The main goal is to privilege instances of discussion and collaboration, which means short talks and more room for questions.
This is not our first meeting, indeed there is now a reach tradition of successful editions. The impressive success of this event is denoted by the number of attendees and the increasing financial support from international (PABMB, The Protein Society, Biophysical Society, ICGEB, UNU-BIOLAC) and local sponsors. Remarkable scientists from the other hemisphere as Jose Onuchic and Charles R. Sanders have joined previous editions of the event.
Welcome to Montevideo, Uruguay 2019!
What's in the menu?
The general program consists on a set of mini-courses and lectures focused on discussing ongoing researches and emergent ideas on fundamental and applied aspects, which are further enriched by outstanding keynotes. This year, we pretend to innovate by adding an Elevator Pitch session and a Chalk Talk. The best ten elevator speeches will be ask to present at the Young Scientists session.

PeerJ Award to Best Talk
Open access journal publisher PeerJ will award the Best Oral Presentation by a student or early career researcher at the Young Scientists session. The winner will receive a voucher for a free PeerJ paper (upon submission and acceptance through our normal peer review system – a $1095 value) and an interview on the PeerJ site about their research. The award aims to support rigorous scientific effort by early career researchers as well as to bring continued awareness to the benefits that open access and open communication have in furthering scientific progress.
