The event was conceived as an initiative of young researchers from South America to push forward a growing community in the area of protein folding, structure and dynamics in that region of the world.
Its main objective is to bring together computational and experimental researchers, undergraduate and graduate students from different areas of Structural Biology, Bioinformatics, Biochemistry and Biophysics in order to unify the different visions in the study of the field.
The main goal is to privilege instances of discussion and collaboration, which means short talks and more room for questions.
The general program consists on a set of mini-courses and lectures focused on discussing ongoing researches and emergent ideas on fundamental and applied aspects, which are further enriched by outstanding keynotes.
This year, we pretend to innovate by adding an Elevator Pitch session and a Chalk Talk. The best nine elevator speeches will be ask to present at the Young Scientists session.
