The idea of the session looks good context-wise, but I am confused by the
I see new algorithms above but not new problems.
What are the new problems ? At least for macromolecules, all 'new' problems
I can see are 'technical' and concern speed and efficiency. No doubt there
is need for new algorithms but mostly for old problems.(?)

I attach a DRAFT  list of macromolecular SIG proposals I received from Keith
a while ago, in case it is of any use:
