Fall meeting

eScience Solutions and Opportunities in the Netherlands

November 29th 2017


Venue: Boothzaal, University Library De Uithof, Utrecht


The Netherlands Society on Biomolecular Modelling (NSBM) is an independent society that brings people together in The Netherlands that work on three dimensional structures of biomolecules and biomolecular simulations. Generally twice per year, meetings are hosted by the NSBM that are open to anyone interested, regardless of the affiliation, from within or outside the Netherlands. The NSBM cordially invites you to participate in its 2017 fall meeting in Utrecht. During the meeting, the floor will be given to PhD students and post-docs who study protein structure and/or structural bioinformatics or related topics.
