Computational Electrostatics for Biological Applications - 2013

Geometry and function are interconnected in many complex physical and biological problems. CEBA'13 is intended to provide an international forum to discuss and explore different approaches to improve the electrostatics calculations in the Molecular Biology field by setting up a truly interdisciplinary context of researchers in Geometry Processing, Shape Modeling, Applied Mathematics, and Computational Biology and Chemistry. 

CEBA'13 is co-organized by the Drug Discovery and Development Unit of the Italina Institute of Technology and by the Shape Modeling Group of IMATI-CNR and it is co-located with SGP'13 to foster an interdisciplinary participation.

The scientific program will be based on different sessions, with plenary lectures, oral communications, and poster sessions. The first day will be mostly devoted to the model and numerical aspects of the Poisson-Boltzmann equation solution, the second day will focus on geometric approaches and discretization issues and the third will feature biological applications. The results of the meeting will be published as a book by Springer, with contributions invited and reviewed short after the workshop. The book is expected to give a broad overview of the state-of-the-art in the areas of Applied Mathematics, Geometry Processing, and Computational Biology and Chemistry which contribute to electrostatics calculations in the Molecular Biology.

The workshop is co-sponsored by CECAM, by the flagship CNR Project INTEROMICS and by the CNR-IMATI.
