Travel Award 2019 (800 CHF)
We are inviting applications for the Computation Interdisciplinary Travel Award for postdoctoral fellows/researchers, for outstanding interdisciplinary research in one of the sections covered by Computation (Computational Biology, Computational Chemistry, or Computational Engineering). The award supports travel to attend an international conference of the winner’s choice in 2019. The nominations and applications will be assessed by an Evaluation Committee consisting of senior scholars in the field.
Prof. Dr. Rainer Breitling
–– Postdoctoral fellows/researchers (up to 5 years after obtaining their PhD) whose research involves interdisciplinary research in one of the Sections of Computation (Computational Biology, Computational Chemistry, Computational Engineering).

Travel Award 2017
As the section Editor-in-Chief of Computation, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Computation Travel Award:
Vladas Oleinikovas, Ph.D. student at the University College London, whose research focuses on application of atomistic simulation and enhanced sampling techniques to identify cryptic binding pockets in target proteins of pharmaceutical interest. Vladas is planning to present his work “Understanding cryptic pocket formation in protein targets by enhanced sampling simulations” at the Gordon Research Conference on Computer Aided Drug Design. The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs towards attending this conference.
It was a difficult decision, given the exceptional quality of applications for the award, and on behalf of the award committee, I wish to thank all applicants and to congratulate Mr. Vladas Oleinikovas for his accomplishments.
