The CASP13 Meeting

Riviera Maya, Mexico

December 1-4, 2018

The meeting will be held at the Iberostar Paraiso Maya 5* all-inclusive resort on the Riviera Maya (close to Playa del Carmen), Mexico, December 1-4, 2018 (starting at 6pm on Dec. 1st and ending in the afternoon of the 4th).

In the CASP13 experiment, over 57,000 predictions were collected on 90 protein targets. The conference will feature assessment talks, reports from the best predictors, and keynote presentations. Detailed program of the meeting will be available in mid-November, 2018.

Assessment of predictions:

  • High accuracy models - Randy Read (Cambridge University, UK)
  • Model topology - Matteo Dal Peraro (EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland)
  • Contact prediction - Andras Fiser (Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, NY, USA)
  • Model refinement - Randy Read (Cambridge University, UK)
  • Assembly (quaternary structure and complexes) - Jose Duarte (RCSB, San Diego, CA, USA)
  • Model accuracy estimation - Chaok Seok (Seoul National University, South Korea)
  • Data assisted models - Gaetano Montelione (Rutgers, USA), Susan Tsutakawa /Greg Hura (LBL, Berkeley, CA, USA), and Andras Fiser (Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, USA)
  • Biological Relevance of models - Rosalba Lepore, University of Basel, Switzerland

The keynote speakers represent two current areas of special interest in CASP, machine learning /deep learning in structural biology and cryo-EM driven modeling:

  • David Koes (U Pittsburgh), is a pioneer in the application of convolutional neural networks to molecular docking
  • Wah Chiu (Stanford), is a leader in cryo-electron microscopy.
Please share this information with your colleagues.

The meeting cost is $1400 per person in a separate room and $1200 in a shared room (double occupancy). This includes registration fee, hotel accommodation and all meals in all-inclusive resort. Special rates are available for extra nights and for accompanying persons. For details and registration please access the UC Davis Conference Services registration site (link below).

Please follow the registration guidelines closely. We reserve the right to cancel any registration, even when the system completes the registration and accepts payment.
