It is planned to publish the Proceedings of the MSSMBS'08 by the Universities Press (I) Pvt. Ltd. Hyderabad, INDIA. The participants are encouraged to email us or to bring the contributed papers in the LaTeX-format and "eps" figures (of approximately up to 10-15 pages).

Deadline: 10 December 2008

Date and Place:

September 10-12, 2008, Dubna, (Moscow Region, Russia)

Organizing committee:

Kholmirzo Kholmurodov   (chair),
Gennady Timoshenko, Mikhail Altaisky, Victor Krylov, Olga Mashkova, Valentina Novikova, Andrey Zorin, Guzel Aru

Organized by:

Laboratory of Radiation Biology of Joint Institute for Nuclear Research

Topics covered:

  • Protein modelling
  • Drug design
  • Simulation of liquids
  • Liquid crystals, polymer systems
  • Simulation of radiation-induced damages and mutations
  • Quantum biophysics, electronic structure of macromolecules
  • Parallel computing for the chemical physics and biomolecular studies

The principal aims:

To provide a platform for computer molecular simulation communities and scientists working in the material and biological areas to meet and share thoughts on latest trends. Main objective is to focus on the molecular dynamics simulations of the chemical physics and biophysical systems. Contributions are from the leading research groups of Japan and Russia. Broad discussion of the radiobiological experimental studies and achievements of the JINR basic facilities to be presented. Sightseeing of the major JINR experimental facilities and Dubna historical sites will be provided.
