Dear Colleague,

We are happy to announce 3Dsig 2011: Structural Bioinformatics &
Computational Biophysics, the main annual event of the field to occur 15-16
July in Vienna, Austria.
Abstract submission deadline is May 1st 2011.
Please spread the word about 3Dsig by posting the 3Dsig ad

3Dsig is the largest satellite meeting of ISMB and includes two full days of
invited keynotes, talks selected from submitted abstracts, discussions and
poster-laptop sessions.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:
* Janet M. Thornton, EBI, UK, After dinner keynote

* Torsten Schwede, SBI, U. of Basel, Switzerland
* Manfred J. Sippl, U. of Salzburg, Austria
* Rebecca C. Wade, EMBL, Germany

Relevant topics include:
* Application of structure to systems biology

* Structure representation, classification and prediction
* Macromolecular assemblies
* Structure genomics
* Molecular visualization
* Relevant method of structure determination, particularly hybrid methods
* Structure-based function prediction
* Evolution studied through structures
* Docking, analysis, prediction and simulation of biomolecular interactions
