Neither Snow, Nor Ice, Nor Flight Cancellations... Could keep nearly 7,000 biophysicists from attending the BPS Annual Meeting in San Francisco, February 15-19

Thematic Meetings 2014 Modeling of Biomolecular Systems Interactions, Dynamics, and Allostery September 10–14, 2014 Istanbul, Turkey May 5 Abstract Submission June 16 Early Registration Significance of Knotted Structures for Function of Proteins and Nucleic Acids September 17–21, 2014 Warsaw, Poland May 12 Abstract Submission June 23 Early Registration Disordered Motifs and Domains in Cell Control October 11–15, 2014 Dublin, Ireland June 2 Abstract Submission July 11 Early Registration

It was another great meeting where re- searchers came to bridge the sciences to explore, understand, and solve biological problems and create new collaborations and research communities.

During heavy snowstorms in the Eastern US, San Francisco welcomed researchers from over 46 countries with blue skies and unseasonably warm and sunny weather. With over 850 poster presentations each

day, poster sessions never stopped buzz- ing. The speaker presentations in the more than 24 sympo- sia and workshops and

63 platform sessions added to the palpably electric atmosphere. Twelve subgroup pro- grams on the Saturday before the meeting's official start saw standing room only attendance.
