The TSRC Workshop on Protein Dynamics is a small focussed meeting that nonetheless spans the full range of experimental and theoretical biophysical methods for elucidating the contribution of protein dynamics to function. A hallmark of the meeting is the interdisciplinary connections that are forged between the different subdisciplines.

Workshop dates. The workshop will begin at 8:30 am on Monday, August 1, 2011 and end 12:00 pm on Friday, August 5, 2011. TSRC prides itself in not being a drop-in/drop-out meeting. Generally, all participants are speakers and everyone is expected to stay the duration of the meeting. Participants should arrive on Sunday and depart on Saturday. Lodgings in Telluride offer 5-7 night stays at the same rate, so staying six nights costs the same as staying five nights.

Venue. The workshop will be held at the Telluride Intermediate School. Maps showing the location of the Intermediate School, the town of Telluride, and the region are located here.

Sunday gathering. If you are arriving in Telluride on Sunday, July 31, 2009, and would like to meet colleagues from this workshop, an informal get-together will be held starting at approximately 6 pm. The location and other details for the gathering will be provided closer to the meeting.

Families. Bringing spouses and families can make these 6-7 night stays particularly enjoyable. Families are welcomed to the picnic free of charge! Many family friendly activities are available in the resort town of Telluride. Visit these TSRC webpages for more information:
