CASP: Early bird registration deadline for the CASP12 meeting is October 10th
A reminder that the deadline for early bird registration for the CASP12 meeting in Gaeta is now very close - next Monday October 10th.
The second planning meeting, in which the assessors present their preliminary findings to the organizers, was held a couple of weeks ago, and there is some pretty exciting stuff. In particular, looks like substantial improvement in average "new fold" model accuracy, probably due to the new co-evolution methods. The new "is the model as good as experiment for understanding function" category has a team of four assessors, led by Russ Altman, and should produce substantial insights. Very intriguing comparisons between SAXS data, experimental structures, and models. Again we have a collaboration with CAPRI for modeling assemblies, with a more substantial body of data than previously. And, of course, many interesting results in comparative modeling, refinement, and accuracy estimation.

12th CASP Meeting
December 10-13th 2016, Gaeta (Italy)
The meeting concludes the 12th international CASP (Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction) experiment. The goal of the meeting is to discuss the state of the art of methods for predicting protein structure, assembly, and function from sequence, reporting and discussing the results of a blind assessment.
Confirmed invited speakers:
Russ Altman - Stanford University - USA
Alexandre Bonvin - Utrecht University - NL
Guido Capitani - Paul Scherrer Institut - CH
Matteo Dal Peraro - Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne - CH
Edward H. Egelman - University of Virginia - USA
Francesco Gervasio - UCL - UK
Michael Levitt - Stanford University - USA
The meeting will be held at Hotel Serapo (www. http://www.hotelserapo.com/en/), on the slopes of the Natural Park of Monte Orlando in a beautiful and panoramic corner overlooking Serapo Beach, very close to the city center and the old town of Gaeta.
The city itself, the so-called Ulysses Riviera, is embedded in a fascinating area, full of surprises, natural beauties, history, art and culture. It is conveniently located between Rome and Naples. It overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. Its history as a resort dates back to Imperial Rome. Nearby sites include the first-century BC mausoleum of general Lucius Munatius Plancus. Its old town is mostly medieval, showcased by narrow alleys, the massive 13th-century castle and the 12th-century Cathedral of Assunta e Sant"Erasmo.

Кушелев: Я бы очень хотел, чтобы Виктория Соколик, богиня пикотехнологии (а теперь ещё и богиня вечной молодости!) сделала доклад на конференции CASP. Ведь после создания пикотехнологии нанотехнология безвозвратно устарела. Это значит, что все, кто сегодня вкладывают в устаревшую нанотехнологию, выбрасывают деньги на ветер, а могли бы вложить в современную пикотехнологию и поднять нашу цивилизацию на новую ступень развития.
