The Institute of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, the Committee of Physics of Polish Academy of Sciences and the Pro Physica Foundation are organizing a 6th edition of the conference on Biomolecules and Nanostructures.
Our goal is to provide an informal, creative atmosphere and highly interactive nature of this meeting. Previous editions of this conference have gained the enthusiastic feedback from participants. Now, we expect again over 100 participants and hope to meet you in Podlesice, in the picturesque Polish Jurassic Upland.
Key topics of the conference cover current subjects on the crossroads of molecular biology, physics and chemistry, including biomolecules, nanostructures, nanomachines, biosensors.
The specific topics of the “Biomolecules and Nanostructures 6” conference in 2017 will include:
- protein folding, aggregation and disorder,
- single-molecule manipulation
- biomolecular complexes and their interactions
- nucleic acids
- phenomena at bio-nano interfaces
and other subjects in molecular biophysics and biochemistry, in a balance between experimental and theoretical subjects.
The Conference is organized under the auspices of the Division of Physics in Life Science of the European Physical Society. This is the sixth conference in a series. The previous editions took place in Bedlewo near Poznan in Greater Poland, in Pultusk near Warsaw in Mazovia, and in Jaroszowice near Krakow in Lesser Poland.
The oncoming event will take place in a small village of Podlesice near Kroczyce in the Krakow-Czestochowa Upland (Polish Jura). The venue is a three star hotel Ostaniec (The Outlier). The place houses up to 106 participants. It offers all necessary facilities, and nearby picturesque limestone hills, outliers and caves. Several excursions e.g. to Ogrodzieniec Castle or Krakow, are available on request after the conference (please, contact directly the hotel reception desk).
The dates are May 10 (Wednesday) - May 14 (Sunday) 2017.
Registration is open. Please register online.
Abstract submission is open untill March 3rd, 2017. A few short talks (15 min.) will be selected from the abstracts. The abstracts book will be issued within the Europhysics Conference Abstracts series published by the European Physical Society.
Two best-presentation awards of 350 euro each will be funded to young participants by Europhysics Letters - a journal exploring the frontiers of physics.
European Physical Society has sponsored one poster prize of an amount of 200 EUR for a poster prepared by a PhD student.
Polish Biochemical Society has sponsored two travel grants for graduate students participating in the conference. The grant is in the amount of 1800 PLN each to cover the full conference fee. If you intend to apply, please contact the organizers.
European Physical Society has sponsored three travel grants for young researchers studying or working at a European institution, who received their PhD less than six years prior to the application and present a contribution during the conference.
If you are interested in getting one of the above mentioned travel grants, please send a letter of application to the conference organizers.
