    My Idea of such meeting is of speakers which will talk about their 
work, and then will give a brief tutorial of how he did things.  Also 
few lab hours, for people which will want to learn and try things, 
which will be given by the speakers.  There should be session about 
proteins in ligands, membrane and in-membrane protein, protein's 
conformation and etc.
    Regarding the place I prefer Israel (as you can expect), but if 
other place is chosen I think the issue is mostly the cost.  Hence I 
guess Brazil is not the place, although I wish to visit there.
