Every four years, an extended community of researchers, interested in coiled coils, collagen and other fibrous proteins, meets at the Böglerhof in Alpbach, a lovely mountain village in Austrian Tyrol. The next conference will be on September 4 – 9, 2022.
In recent years, the meeting has shifted its original focus from muscle, intermediate filaments and the extracellular matrix to take a broader view of fibrous and other repeat proteins, including aspects of engineering and design. The format of the meetings is very informal, with talks in the morning and in the evening. The afternoons are free for interactions, hiking and relaxation (see the programs of the past meetings). The wonderful setting of the Böglerhof makes the meetings both scientifically engaging and very pleasant.
