=============== CALL FOR PARTICIPATION AND CONTRIBUTION ==================

Computational Electrostatics for Biological Applications<>
        Geometric and numerical approaches to the description
    of electrostatic interaction between biological macromolecules
  Italian Institute of Technology, Genova – 1-3 July 2013

=============== ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MAY 6TH ================

Geometry and function are interconnected in many complex physical and biological problems. CEBA'13 is intended to provide an international forum to discuss and explore different approaches to improve the electrostatics calculations in the Molecular Biology field by setting up a truly interdisciplinary context of researchers in Geometry Processing, Shape Modeling, Applied Mathematics, and Computational Biology and Chemistry.

CEBA'13 is co-organized by the Drug Discovery and Development Unit of the Italian Institute of Technology and by the Shape Modeling Group of IMATI-CNR and, to foster an interdisciplinary participation, it is co-located with the EG Eurographics Symposium on Geometry Processing 2013<>, (3-5 July 2013), a premier venue for exchanging research results on a wide range of topics related to the creation of mathematical foundations and practical algorithms for the processing of complex geometric data sets and models.

The scope of the meeting is quite broad. However, a special focus on theoretical, numerical and modeling aspects of the Poisson-Boltzmann equation and its applications to the NanoBiotechnology field will be given.

The scientific program will be based on different sessions, with plenary lectures, oral communications, and poster sessions. The first day will be mostly devoted to the model and numerical aspects of the Poisson-Boltzmann equation solution, the second day will focus on geometric approaches and discretization issues and the third will feature biological applications. A special “hands on DelPhi” session is envisioned, allowing young researchers interested in how to exploit the functionalities of the DelPhi Poisson-Boltzmann solver to walk through worked examples and ask questions on specific issues.

Details on the registration, accommodation and submission of abstracts can be found on the website:
as well as a provisional speaker list:

The results of the meeting will be published as a book by Springer, with contributions invited and reviewed short after the workshop. The book is expected to give a broad overview of the state-of-the-art in the areas of Applied Mathematics, Geometry Processing, and Computational Biology and Chemistry which contribute to electrostatics calculations in the Molecular Biology.

The workshop is co-sponsored by CECAM, by the flagship CNR Project INTEROMICS and by the CNR-IMATI.
