Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Biomolecules: Biomacromolecules and the Modern World Challenges (IECBM2022). The conference is organized by the MDPI open-access journal Biomolecules (Impact Factor 6.064), and will be held online from 1-15 November 2022.

This conference will provide leading scientists working in the field with an online platform on which to share their latest research and engage in exciting discussions. The main topics and sessions of the conference are:

Biomacromolecules: Proteins;
Biomacromolecules: Carbohydrates;
Biomacromolecules: Nucleic Acids;
Biomolecules: Lipids.

This online event will bring together researchers from all over the world with no concerns of travel or other related expenditures. Participation and “attendance” to the IECBM2022 are FREE of charge.

The conference invites submissions for abstracts that will be reviewed by the conference committee. The authors of accepted contributions will be invited to submit a conference paper along with a slide or poster presentation of their work. All participants will have the opportunity to examine, explore, and critically engage with research findings published in Sciforum during the conference.

After the conference, all accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of this e-conference within a dedicated issue of the MDPI journal Biology and Life Sciences Forum. In addition, all participants will be encouraged to submit a full paper to one dedicated Special Issue in Biomolecules with a 20% discount on the article processing charges (APC).

We hope that you will join this e-conference to exchange ideas, start fruitful collaborations, and make this edition a success.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Vladimir N. Uversky, PhD, DSc, FRSB, FRSC

Event Chair

Department of Molecular Medicine, University of South Florida, USA

Vladimir Uversky is Professor at the College of Molecular Medicine, University of South Florida. He is a biophysicist and obtained his PhD and Doctor of Science (DSc) in Physics and Mathematics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (1991) and at the Institute Experimental and Theoretical Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences (1998), respectively. He spent his early career investigating protein folding at the Institute of Protein Research and the Institute for Biological Instrumentation (Russia). In 1998, he moved to the University of California Santa Cruz to work on protein folding, misfolding, and protein intrinsic disorder. In 2004, he joined the Indiana School of Medicine and, in 2010, the University of South Florida, where he has since been continuing his studies on protein folding, misfolding, and intrinsically disordered proteins. Prof. Vladimir Uversky has authored over 980 scientific publications, edited numerous books, and is also serves as the editor of several scientific journals. He was included in Thomson Reuters list of Highly Cited Researchers in 2014-2020.
