A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

3rd CCPN/EU conference "NMR: Solids, Solutions and Samples"

Event Date: 
Wed, 2011-09-28 13:00 - Fri, 2011-09-30 14:45


ITQB in Oerias, near Lisbon, Portugal.

CCPN and ITQB,  jointly with the WeNMR project and partly supported by BioNMR. 

Practical aspects of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, with sessions on Solution NMR, Solid state NMR, and sample preparation.
There are satellite courses on CcpNmr Analysis (introduction and solid state), and a CcpNmr Analysis development workshop on solid state NMR.
The meeting is particularly aimed at PhD students and postdocs

Registration and accomodation:
The meeting is subsidized. Registration is 60€ (30€ for poster presenters), which includes hotel accomodation and meals.


  • Applications in Solution
  • Applications in Solids
  • Protein Expression
  • Afternoon walk on the coast.

The meeting is now over. The talks given at the meeting can be found here.
