This year the annual conference Discussions in Structural Molecular Biology in Nove Hrady is canceled because of the ongoing reconstruction of the Castle theater. The CIISB users meeting this Autumn (October most likely) will be connected with a Structural biology conference of this type. We hope that the Castle theater in Nove Hrady will be available for the 2018 conference. For the future we want to stick to the CIISB Users meeting being connected to the Discussions conference. The General assembly of the CSSB society must meet once a year. This year we want to do this at the Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting 2017. This conference has a promise of a very interesting program (held in Brno). The General assembly of CSSB is planned at this conference (May 25 2017, 17:30 – 18:00). We would like to ask all members of our society to register to this conference and participate in the Assembly.
