Computational Structural Bioinformatics Workshop 2020

In conjunction with ACM-BCB, Sept. 21 - 24, Atlanta GA (virtual)

Full length papers (8 pages) and 2-page poster abstracts are being accepted. This year we are also accepting works in progress (8 pages) in modeling the structure, function, and mutations of the covid-19 proteome. Accepted manuscripts will be published in the conference proceedings via the ACM Digital Library. Selected manuscripts will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a journal special issue. Please note that accepted manuscripts will need to be shortened from 8 pages to 6 pages for the camera-ready version, per the publication requirement for the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Thanks to generous NSF support, funding has been received to reimburse full workshop and conference registration fees for 15 student authors.

The annual workshop brings together researchers and their students with interets in structural bioinformatics.

Topics of interest, but not limited to, include the following:

  • Structure representations, prediction, and refinement
  • Molecular simulation
  • Biomolecular graphics
  • Coarse grained modeling
  • Structure comparision and alignment
  • Molecular interaction and docking
  • Data mining
  • Structural genomics
  • Applications of high performance computing to structural problems
  • Applications of graph theory and optimization to structural problems
  • Structure-based drug design and QSAR
