Dear NSBM members and enthusiasts,

After a forced pause in our activities, we are very glad to announce that we will organize a next meeting. This year, the meeting will be organized together with our Belgian colleagues, in particular Prof Wim Vranken, of the ELIXIR Belgium node on the 27th of October 2022 and will be hosted in beautiful Brussels.

The current tentative programme is as follows:


Meeting Title: Structural bioinformatics beyond AlphaFold2

location: U-residence aan de Vrije Universiteit Brussel, VUB (Pleinlaan 2, B-1050 Brussels, Belgium)

We will host 3 sessions:


Session 1: 'Structural bioinformatics in the age of AlphaFold2' - Gert Vriend, Radboud University, the Netherlands

Session 2: ‘Large scale AlphaFold2 analyses’ - Christine Orengo, University College London, United Kingdom

Session 3: ‘Probabilistic approaches and representing conformational variability’ - Max Bonomi, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

Session 4: ‘Proteomics & protein structure’ - Ron Heeren, M4I, Maastricht University, the Netherlands



Opening: 10:00 a.m.


Abstracts can be sent in via:

In line with the goals of the NSBM, we wish to provide a stage for Master students, PhD students, postdoctoral students and established researchers in any field of research connected to structural bioinformatics. There will be possibilities for oral and poster presentations, based on abstract selection by the organizing committee.


To enable a realistic planning of the meeting we ask participants to register via:


This meeting is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors:




The day will be informally closed by a beer&fries reception
