Under the auspices of the Division of Medicinal Chemistry of the SCI.

Following the previous editions held in L’Aquila in 2011, in Genova (2013), in Verona (2014) and in Rome (2015), the convention aims to gather together researchers who make use of techniques such as computational chemistry, chemoinformatics, QSAR, property prediction to direct their effort towards integrated drug discovery programs.

Researchers from both academia and industry are cordially invited to attend and to contribute to set up the state of the art of the discipline in Italy.

Topics

The sessions will be focused on topical issues among which Molecular Dynamics of complex models, Biophysics and Computational, Computational approaches for DNA and RNA
