AlgoSB schools in general

The Algorithms in Structural Bioinformatics school, now in its 7th edition, focuses on novel or recent theoretical approaches in structural bioinformatics in the largest sense. Leading researchers from institutes around the world are invited to provide lectures together with hands-on practical courses. A fundamental goal of the school is to facilitate an algorithmic view of these ideas in order to identify new directions for exploration.

AlgoSB schools last approximately 1 week and are aimed at bringing together scientists from different disciplines (computer science, biophysics, biochemistry, mathematics, …) in a pleasant setting amenable to learning new approaches and creating synergies for future work.

This year's edition

The focus of AlgoSB 2020 is Intrinsic Disorder in Proteins, which encompasses conformational diversity, fuzzy binding, and condensation phenomena in the cell. It will be held from 23 - 27 Nov 2017 at the Institute of Scientific Studies by the village of Cargèse on the island of Corsica, France, perched on a rocky cliff above the deep, blue Mediterranean sea.
