Arrival Instructions

Make sure you arrive with sufficient time left before the start of the program, as some of you have accommodation in a certain distance from the Conference venue.

For the main meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) we must split into two groups. Your name tag will have a mark (a sticker or similar) which means that you dine downstairs in the restaurant of the Castle. No sticker – you dine on the main floor.

We ask speakers to copy their presentation on the conference room computer well BEFORE the session and the chair persons to help speakers test their presentations. There will be strict timing of the lectures, unless marked otherwise in the program, you have 15 minutes to speak and 5 minutes for discussion.

The poster session in the Blue saloon (just in front of the entrance) will be held on Friday evening. The posters should be put up after Friday lunch and taken down after the poster session or on Saturday morning. Some poster boards will use pins, some glue tag (zvykacka), these will be provided.

Student competition

The Czech Society for Structural Biology invites all student presentations at the XIX Discussions in Structural Molecular Biology and the 6th User Meeting of CIISB to compete in two categories:
– Prize of the Czech Society for Structural Biology for an outstanding student poster
– Prize of the Czech Society for Structural Biology for an outstanding student presentation

The competing author must be a student (undergraduate or post-graduate studies) or a fresh PhD (less than one year from the defense of PhD thesis) at the time of the Discussions.

A maximum of three prizes will be awarded in each category at the end of the Conference. Each prize includes one book related to structural biology or molecular biology selected by the winner.

The event is organized by the Czech Society for Structural Biology, the Czech Infrastructure for Integrative Structural Biology, and the Institute of Biotechnology of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

We thank our sponsors for making this event possible:

Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization IX – Course is postponed

The development of Coronavirus pandemic is rapid and spread all over the World. The Czech government introduced very strong restrictions in quite early stage and our border is completely closed now. It is similar in many other countries. Predictions and models show quite a long-time development that will probably last for months.

Thus, organizing the Course in May 2020 is unfortunately not possible. We still believe we are allowed to organize the course this year, probably in August, or October. Please bookmark and visit our webpage frequently to learn the new date. Registered applicants will be notified by email.
The registration deadline is currently extended until June 7.
