=====================

CASP13 Dec. 1-4, 2018 Riviera Maya, Mexico

Come and join us at CASP13, the Critical Assessment of protein Structure Prediction
conference!

Established in 1994, CASP is the first of now several challenges in computational
and structural biology where new predictive methods are tested without an a priori
knowledge of the answers.

In the 2018 CASP13 experiment, over 57,000 predictions were collected on 90 protein
targets. The conference will feature prediction 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.

CASP13 will be held December 1-4, 2018, at the Iberostar Paraiso Maya 5* resort
(destination airport is Cancun - CUN).
