2015 marked the 40th anniversary of the Australian Society for Biophysics. In recognition of this occasion, the 2015 ASB meeting was held in Armidale, NSW, the location of the 1st annual meeting of the society. For our 40th Birthday, we have organised a special program that includes a symposium on Protein Structure and Dynamics, jointly held by the Australian Society for Biophysics and the Biophysics Society of Japan.
