8th Visegrad Symposium on Structural Systems Biology is the continuation of previous successful conferences organized by four Visegrad countries. The aim of the organizers of the symposium is to follow the tradition of previously organized meetings in the field of computational simulations and spectroscopy of biologically relevant systems.

There will be 30 min invited lectures covering recent advances in the topics of the Symposium. Other contributions will be presented in one poster session. This poster session provides the main forum for the presentation of new work and for the discussion of recent progress. A few of the contributions will be selected for oral presentation (20 min lectures).
