Promoting Scientific Activities

General Chair, Scientific Chair

Together with J. Cortés (LAAS/CNRS, Toulouse), and C. Robert (IBPC/CNRS, Paris), we launched and have been organizing the Winter Schools series Algorithms in Structural Bio-informatics. These schools are meant to train PhD students and post-docs on advanced algorithmic techniques in structural biology. The 2017 Edition, which took place at the CNRS center in Cargese, focused on Protein design, see https://algosb2017.sciencesconf.org/. It attracted 40 participants from worldwide institutions.
