Scientific Program

The main scientific program will be divided into six plenary sessions:

  • Cheminformatics
  • Structure-Activity and Structure-Property Prediction
  • Structure-Based Drug Design and Virtual Screening
  • Analysis of Large Chemistry Spaces
  • Integration of Chemical Information with other Resources
  • Dealing with Biological Complexity

Poster Session

An extended poster session will be part of the scientific program. Poster board dimensions are 100 cm high and 125 cm wide. To ensure your poster fits the board, we recommend that posters are printed to A0 in landscape orientation (84 cm high and 118.9 cm wide). You are free to choose either landscape or portrait orientation and any size as long as your poster fits within the dimension of the poster boards.


Dr Rudy Potenzone will be awarded the CSA Trust Mike Lynch Award. On Sunday evening Dr Potenzone will deliver the keynote address with the title From Teletype Structure Input to a Biology and Chemistry Intelligent Knowledge Graphs: My 45 Years in Cheminformatics


Information about the registration is available on the registration page.


An exhibition featuring both commercially available software and also software from research projects and Special Interest Group (SIG) sessions will form an integral part of the conference. There will be an Exhibition page with more details at a later date.
