“3DSIG is the largest international gathering on structural computational biology with renowned speakers including Nobel prize winners.

“When organizing a conference, it can feel like there are one million and one things to keep track of, from managing conference registrations to keeping track of special diets, to controlling abstract submissions, to having a clean interface where you can promote your conference. Fourwaves provides an efficient platform where all of this can be taken care of in one place, with a user-friendly interface that anyone can quickly learn how to use.
