Dear list subscribers,

we are very happy to announce next year’s “32nd Molecular Modelling 
Workshop (MMWS)” (http://mmws2018.mgms-ds.de) that takes place on March, 
Monday 12th to Wednesday 14th, 2018, at the 
Friedrich-Alexander-University in Erlangen.

The MMWS has a long history of giving young scientists (especially 
graduate students) the opportunity to present their work and dive into 
discussions with each other and the “older experts” of the field to gain 
valuable feedback from academic as well as industrial colleagues. Oral 
and poster contributions are welcome from all areas of molecular 
modelling – from the life sciences, computational biology and chemistry, 
cheminformatics, to materials sciences.

Starting with the scientific program on Monday after lunch should allow 
to avoid travelling on weekend keeping the expenses at a minimum. A 
hearty workshop dinner and a traditional joint evening in Erlangen’s 
Steinbach-Bräu brewery complement the scientific program. The workshop 
is organised by the German Section of the Molecular Graphics and 
Modelling Society (MGMS-DS e.V.).

####### Pre-conference workshop #######
For the first time at our Molecular Modeling Workshop, Schrödinger is 
offering a pre-conference workshop entiteled "Structure-based Drug 
Design using the Schrödinger Suite". If you are interested in 
participating at the software session, please checkmark the 
corresponding field upon filling the registration form.

####### Plenary Speakers #######
We are very happy to announce that four outstanding researchers accepted 
our invitation to present a plenary lecture at the workshop:

Bernd Engels (Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, 
University of Würzburg)
      "Towards the Rational Design of Covalent Inhibitors"

Pavel Hobza (Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the 
Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague)
      "Protein-Ligand Interactions and Drug Design"

Gerhard Wolber (Institute of Pharmacy, Free University of Berlin)
      "Exploring Protein - Ligand Binding Using 3D Pharmacophore Patterns"

Marc Hamm (Henkel AG & Co. KGaA)
      "Facets of Materials Modelling at Henkel"

####### Poster and Lecture Awards #######
As in the past years, there will be two poster awards of EUR 100 each 
and three lecture awards for the best contributed oral presentations:

1st winner: Travel bursary to attend the Young Modeller's Forum in 
London, UK, plus a speaker slot option at YMF (travel expenses are 
reimbursed up to EUR 500)

2nd winner: EUR 200 travel expenses reimbursement

3rd winner: EUR 100 travel expenses reimbursement

Only undergraduate and graduate research students qualify for the poster 
and lecture awards.

####### Registration and poster/talk submission #######
Submit talks and/or poster titles via the registration form accessible 
on the workshop website https://mmws2018.mgms-ds.de/index.php?m=register
The deadline for all submissions is February 16th, 2018.

####### General information #######
Website http://mmws2018.mgms-ds.de will provide all necessary 
information about the meeting.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Erlangen!
