Despite progress with experimental high-throughput techniques for the analysis of protein-protein interactions, bioinformatics, molecular modeling and simulation can play important roles in determining the stability and the structure of protein complexes, in identifying weak transient interactions, in understanding the role of non-functional interactions in a crowed molecular environment and in analyzing dynamic protein interaction networks.

Molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, bioinformatics and molecular simulation all have important roles to play in understanding the complex protein networks that populate living matter. These networks in turn rely on protein-protein interactions that are characterized by structures, stabilities and lifetimes that vary over wide ranges and take place in a complex, heterogeneous and crowed environment.

The aim of the meeting is to provide an overview of protein-protein interactions, covering a range of scales: from physico-chemical analysis to prediction, from binary complexes to large assemblies, from cellular organization to the comparison of different organisms and from function to dysfunction and potential therapies.


Submissions for oral presentations and laptop session are closed.

The laptop session is an alternative to the classical poster session where
participants come with their laptop and present a short slide-show (2-3 slides) and eventually a linked demonstration of their work.

This is an opportunity to communicate scientific results in a more lively and interactive way.
