Hybrid/Integrative Methods Task Force
The wwPDB established a wwPDB Hybrid Methods Task Force composed of experts in the various experimental fields that are contributing to these hybrid studies, experts in hybrid modeling, and experts in archiving. The first meeting was held October 6-7, 2014 at EMBL-EBI (Hinxton, UK) to discuss the many issues involved in archiving models determined by hybrid methods.
The white paper from this meeting has been published: Outcome of the First wwPDB Hybrid/Integrative Methods Task Force

In 2019, a Workshop was held as a Biophysical Society (BPS) Satellite Meeting to assess progress regarding the implementation of Task Force recommendations and to discuss further requirements for archiving integrative structures. The primary goal of the Workshop was to build consensus for addressing the challenges involved in creating common data standards, building methods for federated data exchange, and developing mechanisms for validating integrative structures. The workshop was attended by experts in various experimental methods, integrative modelers and wwPDB members.
The summary of the workshop and the recommendations that emerged have been published in a white paper: Structure 27: 1745-1759 doi: 10.1016/j.str.2019.11.002
