Les Houches-TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop, June 7-12, 2020

I am one of the organizers of the Les Houches - TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop. We cordially invite applications to participate in the fourth Les Houches – TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop that will be held from June 7 – Jun 12, 2020 in Les Houches, close to Chamonix in the French Alps. This workshop is a forum for presenting, teaching and discussing results from the application of state-of-the-art experimental methods (including, but not limited to, optical spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, XFELs, cryo electron microscopy and atomic-force microscopy and scattering methods), and theoretical and computational approaches to studying protein dynamics. 

About 30 invited speakers will give oral presentations comprising a pedagogic introduction to the methodology employed, followed by applications from their own work. Each 30-minute presentation will be followed by 15 minutes of discussion. In addition to the 30 invited speakers, there will be space for 30 student/postdoctoral participants that can present posters as well as short presentations of their work. 


The meeting will take place at the Ecole de Physique des Houches. The site, which has been in operation at its present location in the shadow of the French Alps since 1951, has a long tradition of hosting relatively small (< 100 attendees), focused workshops and schools in a secluded setting that stimulates intense discussion during formal presentations and promotes fruitful, informal interactions between all participants, including senior investigators, young investigators, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. The Ecole de Physique des Houches can be conveniently reached from Geneva Airport by shuttle-bus service within 80 minutes.

We have finalized the list of speakers, which you can find on our website www.tinyurl.com/protdyn2020. You may also find details about the place, venue etc on our web site and on the site of the Les Houches Physics School https://www.houches-school-physics.com/practical-information/access/

I am contacting you today to ask if you could help to announce the meeting by forwarding the text below and/or the attached poster, or printing and displaying the poster in your institute, or talking to colleagues and students about our workshop.
