On the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of SWISS-MODEL, this symposium will provide an overview of recent progress in the Computational Structural Biology field and highlight the key challenges for the coming years. SWISS-MODEL was the first fully automated Web-based server for protein structure modelling. A major driver behind its development has been to mask the complexity associated with protein modelling behind an intuitive user interface, thereby broadening the uses and applications of protein models. Today SWISS-MODEL processes over 1 million model requests per year and is one of the most widely used structure modelling servers worldwide.

The symposium will feature a full day of lectures and presentations by international experts. Leaders in their field will present their perspective on how break-through developments in computational structural biology have contributed to our understanding of biological processes and diseases. The event will be open for anybody interested in structural biology and computational methods in this area. We particularly encourage the participation of students and junior scientists, who will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with international leaders in the field, and expand their collaborative network.

Call for Oral Presentation Abstracts

We invite scientists and professionals working in the fields of life sciences to propose oral presentations about successful research projects, where SWISS-MODEL has been used and the models contributed to scientific outcome of the study. The presenting author of selected abstracts will be invited to give a talk at the SWISS-MODEL 25 Years Symposium, and will receive free registration to the Symposium, travel and accommodation.
