Les Houches - TSRC Workshop on Protein Dynamics - 27 May - 01 June 2018 - Les Houches, France

This international workshop is a forum for presenting and discussing results from state-of-the-art experimental approaches (including optical spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, XFELs, electron microscopy, atomic-force microscopy and scattering methods), and theoretical and computational methods for studying protein dynamics.

In Les Houches, about 30 invited speakers gave oral presentations that comprise a pedagogic introduction to the methodology employed, followed by applications from their own work. Each 30-minute presentation was followed by 15 minutes of discussion. In addition to the 30 invited speakers, there was space for 30 student/postdoctoral participants to present posters. The interdisciplinarity and format with a small number of participants (60), as well as the venue created an excellent atmosphere of exchange of ideas and knowledge sharing, which was enthusiastically welcomed by speakers, researchers and students from 5 continents.

The Les Houches – TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop complements the long-standing TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop, held every other year in the odd calendar years at the Telluride Science Research Center in Telluride, Colorado. The workshop will be organized in Les Houches again in 2020. To know more, please consult the Workshop webpage
