The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, is organizing an International Workshop on Biopolymers to be held in Trieste from 30 May to 3 June 2005.
The activity is directed by Somendra M. Bhattacharjee (Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar, India), Cristian Micheletti (SISSA, Trieste, Italy) and Andrzej Stasiak (University of Lausanne, Switzerland).
The purpose of the Workshop is to provide state-of-the-art perspectives on experimental, theoretical and computational approaches to this vital area and to foster discussions on the challenges and new strategies for understanding biopolymers.
Among others, the following problems will be discussed:
- Single-molecule experiments on DNA and proteins
- Determination and prediction of protein structure and function
- DNA-protein interactions
- DNA structure and topology
- Chromosome structure

Scientists from all countries that are members of the UN, UNESCO or IAEA can attend the Workshop. The main purpose of the Centre is to help researchers from developing countries within the framework of international cooperation. However, scientists from developed countries are most welcome to attend. As the Workshop will be conducted in English, participants must have an adequate working knowledge of that language.
As a rule, travel and subsistence expenses of the participants are borne by their home institutions. However, limited funds are available for a small number of applicants who are nationals of, and working in, developing countries. The Organizers will select participants, and allocate the financial aid, upon evaluation of the application forms. As scarcity of funds allows travel to be granted only in a few exceptional cases, every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fare from their home country. Such financial support is available only to those attending the entire Workshop. There is no registration fee to attend this activity.
CLOSING DATE: 21 JANUARY 2005 FOR RECEIPT OF APPLICATIONS.
Candidates should complete, sign and return the Application Form, downloadable from this WEB Page (see below).
The list of recent publications is necessary to evaluate the pertinence to the subject of the Workshop.
The Application form should be sent to:
