[MGMS-DS]: Molecular Modelling Workshop + Tim Clark Birthday Symposium: April 08-11, 2019 in Erlangen, Germany

We are very delighted to announce this year’s “33rd Molecular Modelling Workshop (MMWS)” (http://mmws2019.mgms-ds.de) that takes place on April, Monday 8th to Wednesday 10th, 2019, at the Friedrich-Alexander-University in Erlangen, Germany.

The MMWS has a long history of giving young scientists (especially graduate students) the opportunity to present their work and dive into discussions with each other and the “older experts” of the field to gain valuable feedback from academic as well as industrial colleagues. Oral and poster contributions are welcome from all areas of molecular modelling – from the life sciences, computational biology and chemistry, cheminformatics, to materials sciences.

Starting with the scientific program on Monday after lunch should allow to avoid travelling on weekend keeping the expenses at a minimum. A hearty workshop dinner and a traditional joint evening in Erlangen’s Steinbach-Bräu brewery complement the scientific program. The workshop is organised by the German Section of the Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society (MGMS-DS e.V.).

####### Satellite symposium in honour of Tim Clark’s 70th birthday ####### Directly after the MMWS, there will be a one-day symposium on Thursday April 11th, 2019 to celebrate the occasion of Tim Clark’s 70th birthday.
You are invited to attend this meeting and extend your stay in Erlangen by an extra day. There will be invited lectures only and no contributed talks. There is no registration, conference desk, or extra fee.
Nevertheless, we expect that you indicate your interest in attending on Thursday by checking the corresponding field during registration for the MMWS.
For further information about our Birthday Symposium, please refer to “Tim-Clark-Day” via https://mmws2019.mgms-ds.de/index.php?m=113

####### Pre-conference workshop #######
For the second time at our Molecular Modeling Workshop, Schrödinger is offering a pre-conference workshop entiteled “Structure-based Drug Design using the Schrödinger Suite”. If you are interested in participating at the software session, please checkmark the corresponding field upon filling the registration form.

####### Plenary Speakers #######
We are very happy to announce that four outstanding researchers accepted our invitation to present a plenary lecture at the Modeling workshop:

Matthias Bremer (Merck KGaA, Darmstadt)
“The Role of Quantum Chemistry in the Development of Liquid Crystals for Display Applications”

Ruth Brenk (University of Bergen)
“Structure-based design of riboswitch ligands and selective NMT inhibitors”

Bernd Meyer (University of Erlangen)
“Chemistry at the solid-liquid interface”

Rochus Schmid (Ruhr-University Bochum)
“Force fields for porous coordination polymers – a tricky business”

####### Poster and Lecture Awards ####### As in the past years, there will be two poster awards of EUR 100 each and three lecture awards for the best contributed oral presentations:

1st winner: Travel bursary to attend the Young Modeller’s Forum in London, UK, plus a speaker slot option at YMF (travel expenses are reimbursed up to EUR 500)

2nd winner: EUR 200 travel expenses reimbursement

3rd winner: EUR 100 travel expenses reimbursement

Only undergraduate and graduate research students qualify for the poster and lecture awards.

####### Registration and poster/talk submission ####### Submit talks and/or poster titles via the registration form accessible on the workshop website https://mmws2019.mgms-ds.de/index.php?m=register
The deadline for all submissions is February 22nd, 2019.

####### General information #######
Website http://mmws2019.mgms-ds.de will provide all necessary information about the meeting.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Erlangen!
