I’m excited to be chairing the International Conference on Chemical Structures along with Markus Wagener of MSD. This is the leading conference focusing on the handling of chemical structures in computer systems, specifically research and development in chemical structure processing, storage, retrieval, and use. The conference fosters cooperation among organizations and researchers involved in the merging fields of cheminformatics and bioinformatics and has a reputation of providing in-depth technical presentations with ample opportunities for one-on-one discussions with the presenters.
This year, the conference will be held June 5-9, 2011 at the beautiful Leeuwenhorst Congress Center in Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands. The call for papers was issued last month, and we’re seeking papers on topics in cheminformatics, structure-activity and structure-property prediction, structure-based drug design and virtual screening, analysis of large chemistry spaces, integrated chemical information, and dealing with biological complexity. Abstracts are due January 31, 2011.
