This year’s meeting is kindly supported by BioExcel, the European Center of Excellence for Computational Biomolecular Research ( KTH is a coordinator of the center with SciLifeLab as a partner member.

The centre works on 1) improving the performance and scalability of major applications for biomolecular simulations – GROMACS, HADDOCK and CPMD; 2) developing user-friendly and automated workflow solutions for computation and data handling based on platforms such as CWL, Galaxy, KNIME, OpenPHACTS, Taverna and COMPSs, 3) providing advanced support to the user communities.

The centre organizes a number of activities which would be of interest to biomolecular researchers. These include hands-on training on supported software, tailored customization of code, popular webinar series, seasonal schools and support forums.

In support of the communities, BioExcel is awarding two prizes for best poster and best presentation. The center also sponsors the social event after the main program.
