2nd notice - Abstract deadline May 1st 2015.

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to register and submit oral and poster abstracts for the Computational Chemical Biology Conference <mailto:http://www.zingconferences.com/conferences/computational-chemical-biology/#http://www.zingconferences.com/conferences/computational-chemical-biology/> (http://www.zingconferences.com/conferences/computational-chemical-biology/) <http://www.zingconferences.com/conferences/computational-chemical-biology/)> that myself and Prof. Ian Gould are chairing. The meeting will take place at the Pullman Cairns International Hotel from 6th – 9th August 2015.

Sponsored by Takeda, Dotmatics and OpenEye.
We have a number of exciting plenary and invited speakers lined up including a number of young and dynamic innovators from both academia and industry:

Prof. Darrin York (Rutgers)
Prof. Jonathan Essex (Southampton)
Prof. Qiang Cui (Wisconsin)
Dr. Felice Lightstone (LLNL)
Dr. Zoe Cournia (BRFA Athens)
Prof. Ron Dror (Stanford)
Prof. Carlos Simmerling (Stony Brook)
Dr. Andy Jennings (Takeda)
Prof. Patricia Jennings (UCSD)
Prof. Erik Lindahl (KTH Stockholm)
Prof. Knut Teigen (Bergen)
Prof. Steven Schwartz (Arizona)
Prof. Jeremy Tame (Yokohama)
Prof. Oscar Ces (Imperial College)
Dr. Daniel Ormsby (Dotmatics)
Prof. Laura Barter (Imperial College)
Prof. Dave Winkler (CSIRO)
Prof. Adrian Roitberg (UFL)
Prof. David Minh (IIT)
Prof. Thomas Cheatham (Utah)
Prof. Alexey Onufriev (Virginia Tech)
Prof. David Mobley (UCI)

The conference will focus on multidisciplinary research that leverages computer simulation to address key questions crossing the physical sciences-life sciences/biomedical interface. In particular, the conference will feature sessions focusing on the development and application of novel and state-of-the-art computational tools and technology for solving major problems in the life and biomedical sciences.

Topics will include advances in molecular dynamics simulation of enzymes; computational approaches to studying the interaction of drugs, drug transporters and signaling enzymes with lipid membranes; simulation of protein-protein interaction and multi-protein complex enzymatic systems; computational study of signaling pathways; new techniques in computational drug discovery as they apply to enzyme reactivity and dynamics; simulation of allosteric interactions; advances in multi-scale modeling; new techniques for direct simulation of reactivity in biological systems; and the impact of technological advances in computer hardware and software on the field of chemical biology.

The conference will feature lectures by established leaders in the fields, as well as a specific focus on encouraging young and talented researchers to present both challenging questions and new ideas for solving them. The aim is to encourage a collegial atmosphere to promote stimulating and insightful discussion while enjoying the beauty of tropical Cairns, Australia.

Deadlines for submissions is 1st May 2015 for Oral abstracts and 1st June 2015 for poster abstracts. For information on confirmed speakers, sponsors and how to register, please go to:
