The Rhine-Knee Regional Meeting on X-ray Crystallography of Biomacromolecules ("Regio Meeting") was initiated in 1987 by Profs. J.N. Jansonius, G.E. Schulz and D. Moras as an informal event to allow young scientists to discuss their research results in an international context. Although the informal character was maintained over the past 25 years, the Regio Meeting has evolved into a platform for presenting new macromolecular structures and innovative crystallography methods at a high level. The 25th Rhine-Knee Regio Meeting is organized by two groups at the Paul Scherrer Institut, Biomolecular Research (head Prof. G. Schertler) and Macromolecular Crystallography at the Swiss Light Source (head Dr. M. Wang). The meeting will take place between the 28th and 30th of September 2011 at Campus Sursee, Switzerland. Abstracts can be submitted on-line (after having registered) until the 13th of September and should emphasize techniques, methods and encountered problems. Two keynote lectures will be delivered by Drs. K. Diederichs (Universität Konstanz) and C. Schulze-Briese (Dectris Ltd.). The meeting is open to everybody but is limited to 80 participants and preference will be given to young scientists from the extended Rhine-Knee region.
