Abstract Submission Deadline: 30 April 2023
Early Bird Payment deadline: 7 May 2023.
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 8th edition of the interdisciplinary conference "Biomolecules and Nanostructures", to be held in hotel Forest in Krakow, starting on June 14th 2023 in the evening and ending on June 18th in the morning (Wednesday to Sunday). The conference is dedicated to the memory of Professor Marek Cieplak. The conference is organized by the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.
The key topics of the conference cover current subjects at the crossroads of molecular biology, physics, and chemistry, including biomolecules, nanostructures, nanomachines, and biosensors. The specific topics of "Biomolecules and Nanostructures 8" will include:
- single-molecule manipulation
- liquid–liquid phase separation
- bio-nano interfaces
- proteins in viral capsids
- all-atom and coarse-grained molecular models
- intrinsically disordered proteins
- assembly of protein complexes
- interactions between nucleic acids and proteins
and other issues related to molecular biophysics and biochemistry, both experimental and theoretical.
Many distinguished scientists have agreed to give invited talks, as listed at: http://www.nanofun.edu.pl/bionano8/#speakers
The list of the oral presentations is not final. In particular, a few short talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts.
"Biomolecules and Nanostructures 8" in Krakow is the eighth conference in a series of almost 20-year tradition. The previous editions took place in Bedlewo near Poznan in Greater Poland, Pultusk near Warsaw in Mazovia, Jaroszowice near Krakow in Lesser Poland, Podlesice in Polish Jura, and in the Kashubian village of Pomlewo. An overview of the scope and plenary speakers of the previous conferences (2004, 2006, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019) is available at
The conference will take place in the beautiful historic city of Krakow in hotel Forest, located near the Przegorzaly Castle and Tower on the Castle Hill. The Przegorzały Castle, known as the "Bastion", was built by the Polish art historian Adolf Szyszko-Bohusz as his own residence in the 1920s. Przegorzaly is a town in the Zwierzyniec district of Krakow, located 6.5 km west of the city center at the edge of the Wolski Woods, east of Bielany and west of the Kościuszko Mound, overlooking the Vistula river. It is home to several nature reserves and has retained a semi-rural character.
The driving distance from the airport in Krakow is about 11 km and from the Krakow Glowny railway station about 10 km.
The number of participants is limited to 150. The registration will be on the first-come first-served basis.
