Dear Colleagues and Friends,

the main motivation for this interdisciplinary Workshop is to bring together experts from biochemistry, biophysical chemistry, experimental physics, and computational physics who work on the properties of biological macromolecules, such as peptides or proteins, and study their folding behaviour and sequence specificity in the presence of attractive subtrates.

The Workshop will take place in the afternoon of Thursday, 16 June 2005, at the Institute for Theoretical Physics.

If you plan to join this informal meeting, please use our WWW registration form. Details on locations and the Workshop schedule will be available from this WWW page.

Invited speakers:
Michael Bachmann (Inst. Theor. Phys., Leipzig)
Annette Beck-Sickinger (Inst. Biochemistry, Leipzig)
Bernd A. Berg (Dept. Phys., Tallahassee, Florida, USA, and Inst. Theor. Phys., Leipzig (LEIBNIZ-Prof.))
Karsten Goede (Inst. Exp. Phys. II, Leipzig)
Marius Grundmann (Inst. Exp. Phys. II, Leipzig)
