We are pleased to announce 3DSIG 2012 in Long Beach, California.

We congratulate Dr. Pooja Jain and Alessandro Pandini for sharing the 2011 Warren DeLano award

3Dsig 2011

Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biophysics

an ISMB satellite meeting

Vienna, 15-16 july 2011


This year's 3Dsig will take place in Vienna on July 15-16, the 2 days preceding ISMB 2011.


We are happy to announce that 3DSIG 2011 will take place the Austria Center Vienna (same venue as ISMB).

We are happy to announce the seventh 3Dsig meeting. Two very full days with a balance of invited talks, short oral presentations, two laptop/poster sessions, and critical, topic-focused discussions. A truly unique event bringing together in one place the structural computational biology community. 
3DSIG 2011 will present the second “Warren DeLano Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biophysics Award” in honour of Warren DeLano and the contributions he made to our community. The award sum of $1000 will be given for the best presentation on behalf of the DeLano foundation. Further prizes also available for best posters.

Relevant topics include:
Application of structure to systems biology.
Structure-based drug discovery including polypharmacology and network pharmacology.
Structure representation, classification and predication.
Macromolecular assembles.
Structural genomics.
3D databases and data mining.
Molecular visualization.
Relevant methods of structure determination, particularly hybrid methods.
Structure-based function prediction.
Evolution studied through structures.
Docking, analysis, prediction and simulation of biomolecular interactions such as protein-protein, protein-ligand and protein-nucleic-acid.
Prediction and analysis of protein domains.
Membrane protein structure analysis and prediction.
Protein dynamics and disorder.
The structural basis of immunology.

3Dsig 2011 is continuing the tradition established through the successful 3Dsig 2010 (Boston, USA), 3Dsig 2009 (Stockholm, Sweden), 3Dsig 2008 (Toronto, Canada), 3Dsig 2007 (Vienna, Austria), 3Dsig 2006 (Fortaleza, Brasil) and 3Dsig 2004 (Glasgow, United Kingdom). To better appreciate the wealth of leading topics and presenters, please explore the programs and proceedings from past meetings. The program will be built around talks from accepted abstracts and invited speakers. The scientific committee is looking for fresh, effective voices with new, high impact ideas. 

Accepted abstracts will fall into two categories: oral presentation and laptop/poster presentation. All participants with accepted abstracts have the choice of presenting their work either as a regular poster, a laptop presentation, or a combination thereof - even those selected for oral presentation. Those choosing to use a laptop to substitute or augment their poster presentation will have a stand or table and electric socket for a personal laptop (presenters must bring their own laptops). The aim of the poster/laptop session is to facilitate interactions between the presenter and the viewers. 

Key Dates: 

March 14, 2011 - Registration opens for 3Dsig and ISMB/ECCB. 
March 18, 2011 - Deadline to submit a poster for ISMB/ECCB - a necessary requirement to be eligible for a ISMB travel fellowship (details). 
April 15, 2011 - Deadline for travel fellowship application for the main ISMB/ECCB meeting by invitation only (details).
May 1, 2011 - Deadline for submitting an abstract to 3Dsig to be considered for oral presentation. 
May 18, 2011 - Late 3Dsig abstract submission deadline. Late submissions will not be considered for oral presentation. Late submission deadline for ISMB poster. Remember that submission of an ISMB poster is a requirement for the travel fellowship application but its deadline is on the 15.
June 3, 2011 - Early registration deadline to the main ISMB conference. Note: you may register only for 3Dsig. Tentative date for the announcement of the abstracts selected for oral presentation and laptop/poster session (full program and online abstracts will be posted soon afterwards).
July 15-16, 2011 - 3Dsig 2011 

We encourage all to apply for the ISMB travel fellowship. The deadline is April 18, 2011 and is available to those who submitted a poster to ISMB main even (the same poster can also be presented at 3Dsig).
