The conference BIMac 2019: “Computational approach to polymers in biological and soft matter” is a follow-up of the longstanding series of Bratislava conferences organized by the Polymer Institute, Slovak Academy of Sciences dating back to 1968. It directly follows the conference BIMac 2016: “Polymers with Tailored Architecture and Properties”. The meeting will be focused on the computational modeling of biological and soft matter with large variety of applications to polymer physics, biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology and potentially to biotechnology, nanotechnology, or biomedicine. Computational modeling provides explanation of experimental findings, interpretation of observed phenomena and prediction of properties and behavior of systems that are not accessible to experimental measurements. Different length and time scales of computational approaches as well as various levels of approximations introduced into the computational methods and models will be presented. This conference is meant to emphasize the growing power and importance of the computer modelling in molecular science. In addition, this meeting is supposed to create an interdisciplinary environment fostering new cooperation and disseminating new knowledge.
