As an attachment I enclose an advance announcement of a school to be held
in Lisbon in March that may be of interest to the users of this network.

\documentstyle{article} \begin{document} \centerline{\bf SPRING SCHOOL} \centerline{on} \centerline{\bf PHYSICS OF BIOSYSTEMS:} \centerline{\bf SELF-ASSEMBLY AND EVOLUTION} \vspace{2.0cm} \centerline{\bf LISBOA, PORTUGAL} \centerline{\bf MARCH 9 TO 20, 1998} \newpage This spring school is part of a program on `Spatio-temporal coherence in the solid state and in living matter' promoted by the Institute for Scientific and Technological Advanced Studies - Portugal (ISTAS-Portugal). \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Scope} \vspace{0.4cm} Biological systems exhibit complex equilibrium and dynamical behaviour as a result of different levels of self-organization: molecular, macromolecular (polymers and membranes) and self-replicating structures (RNA). The latter are at the frontier of darwinian dynamics characterised by the development of structures of increasing complexity, by self-replication those that take better advantadge of the external conditions. In statistical mechanics powerful methods were developed, combined with the construction of effective models, in order to solve problems characterised by spatial and/or temporal coherence. At present, some of these techniques are ripe for applications to selected biological problems. In this school the application of statistical mechanical techniques to problems of self-assembly and evolution are discussed. The level of presentation is appropriate for young post-docs and advanced PhD students, with a sound knowledge of basic statistical mechanics. \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Topics} \begin{itemize} \item From micelles to membranes \item Vesicles and biological membranes \item Dynamics of self-assembling systems \item RNA folding \item Models of evolution \item Population dynamics \item Microtubule assembly \end{itemize} \centerline{\bf Invited Lecturers} \vspace{0.4cm} Henrik Flyvbjerg, Risoe National Laboratory\\ Gerhard Gompper, MPI Kolloid und Grenzflaechenforschung\\ Luca Peliti, Universita Frederico II, Napoli\\ Brian Robinson, University of East Anglia \\ Peter Schuster, Universitaet Wien \\ Karl Sigmund, Universitaet Wien \\ Reinhard Strey, Universitaet Koeln \\ Michael Wortis, University of British Columbia\\ \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Organising Committee} \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{Margarida Telo da Gama} \centerline{Departamento de F\'\i sica e} \centerline{Centro de F\'\i sica da Mat\'eria Condensada da Universidade de Lisboa,} \centerline{Av.

We have kept the number of lecturers rather low in order to allow them to take their time to explain their ideas, concepts and techniques in detail. Three hours of lectures plus one or two research seminars and/or informal discussions are scheduled every day, with a long break in the early afternoon. \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Deadlines} \begin{center} Application for grants --- December 10, 1997 \\ School registration --- January 30, 1998\\ Abstract submission --- February 10, 1998 \end{center} \centerline{\bf Grants} \vspace{0.4cm} A number of grants will be available for participants from EU countries. These grants will be given preferentially to young participants (graduate students, post-docs, etc.) Applications including a short C.V. (with a list of publications) should be sent to the address given above. The deadline for grant application is December 10, 1997. The applicants will be notified before January 30, 1998 by E-mail or fax whether their applications were successful. \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Registration} \vspace{0.4cm} Please complete the enclosed registration form and return it to the School secretariat before January 30, 1998. Please follow the payment instructions given on the form. The registration fees for the School are as follows: \begin{center} Before January 30, 1998 US dollars 300\\ After January 30, 1998 US dollars 400 \end{center} \centerline{\bf Submission of Abstracts} \vspace{0.4cm} Contributions on the topics of the School will be accepted as short talks but a few longer talks are also envisaged. Authors should submit an abstract to the organising committee before February 10, 1998. They will be notified by February 25, 1998 whether their abstracts have been accepted. \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Social Program} \vspace{0.4cm} A School dinner will be offered to participants and accompanying persons. Lisbon and its surroundings are worth visiting and we have no doubt that participants will find something to do over the weekend when the School is off. The conference secretariat offers help in organising local sightseeing excursions if requested. \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Hotel Accomodation} \vspace{0.4cm} Tentative advance reservations have been made by the organising committee. Participants should complete the corresponding information in the registration form. \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Site} \vspace{0.4cm} The scientific activities will take place at the Complexo Interdisciplinar da Universidade de Lisboa. The registration desk and School secretariat are located there for the duration of the School. Participants have access to terminal rooms where they can log-in to their home accounts. If justified, a local computer account may also be obtained. A couple of rooms are reserved and may be used for work and/or informal discussions. Quiet work may also be carried out in the library, which is located next to the lecture theatre. There is restaurant and bar (with a terrace) in the building where coffee breaks, and hopefully lunch, will be taken, so that contacts among participants and lecturers are optimised. \vspace{0.4cm} \centerline{\bf Sponsors} \vspace{0.4cm} This School is financed by the European Commission through the TMR programme and ISTAS-Portugal and co-sponsered by: \begin{itemize} \item Minist\'erio da Ci\^encia e Tecnologia \item Complexo Interdisciplinar da Universidade de Lisboa \item Centro de F\'\i sica da Mat\'eria Condensada \end{itemize} \end{document}
