Call for Papers

The members of the scientific committee are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry, and to invite each researcher working in that exciting field of science to share their recent results with their colleagues.

The conference will cover a wide range of aspects involved in drug discovery and development. A non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered follows:

  • Animal experimentation
  • Assay development
  • Biomarkers
  • Biomolecules
  • Biosensors
  • Biotechnology
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Clinical studies and side effects reports
  • Combinatorial chemistry
  • Drug delivery (including bioconjuguates and prodrugs)
  • High throughput screening
  • Hit identification
  • Imaging techniques
  • In silico experiments
  • In vitro studies
  • Lead optimization
  • Omics
  • Pharmaceutical analysis
  • Scale-up
  • Structure-activity relationships
  • Target selection

Participation at the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry is absolutely free of charge for contributors and visitors. Researchers are invited to provide a short abstract online at http://www.sciforum.net/login from now until 10 October 2016. Acceptance will be determined within a week of submission of the abstract. Then, the author(s) will be asked to present their work (in English) in the form of a slide show (or a video) using the template provided by the conference (see Instructions for Authors). All accepted submissions will be displayed on the Internet, at www.sciforum.net/conference/ecmc-2, from 1–30 November 2016.

After the conference, proceedings will be edited, free of charge, thanks to the sponsorship of the journal Pharmaceuticals, in a meeting report. Authors of the most outstanding contributions, as selected by the Scientific Committee, will be invited to publish their work as a research article, free of charge, in a Special Issue of the journal Pharmaceuticals.

The Scientific Committee looks forward to receiving contributions in response to this call, and will be glad to provide any further information to interested parties. Questions may be addressed to the chairman via e-mail at Jean-Jacques.VANDENEYNDE@ex.umons.ac.be or the conference secretary at ecmc@mdpi.com.

We thank you in advance for your presence at this conference and your contribution to its success.
