8th Annual CCPBioSim Conference - Frontiers in Biomolecular Simulation 2022

Event Date/s: From Monday 06 June 2022 -  12:00
To Wednesday 08 June 2022 - 13:00


The 8th annual meeting of CCP-BioSim will have the theme Machine Learning.


The conference will showcase the important advances in technology, theory, and methodology that are impacting on the power and significance of biomolecular simulation as a technique for addressing important biological problems. This will be placed within the wider landscape of the growing importance of machine learning on biomolecular simulation.


The conference will be taking place at the University of Edinburgh.

More details to follow.

The book of abstracts can be downloaded from here shortly.


CCPBioSim is an inclusive wide-ranging project, bringing together chemists, physicists and chemical engineers as well as researchers from all branches of ‘molecule-oriented’ biochemistry and biology. Our aim is to involve experimentalists and computational specialists, sharing the belief that the best science can be done when theory and experiment are closely integrated. CCPBioSim develops and provides training and tools to lower the barrier to non-experts becoming proficient and productive users of biomolecular simulation techniques. We also work to develop and apply advanced methods.



Accommodation is not provided for this conference and should be arranged separately by the attendee, a list of recommended hotels will soon be confirmed.
