Call for Papers

The members of the scientific committee are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry and to invite each researcher working in that exciting field of science to share his/her recent results with his/her colleagues around the world.

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 comprises:

  • Animal experimentation
  • Assay development
  • Biomarkers
  • Biomolecules
  • Biosensors
  • Biotechnology
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Clinical studies and side effects reports
  • Combinatorial chemistry
  • Drug delivery (including bioconjugates 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 3rd International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry is absolutely free of charge for contributors and visitors. Researchers are invited to provide a short abstract on line at http://www.sciforum.net/login from now until 15 October 2017. Acceptance will be notified within a week after 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). Posters, realized following the template provided online, will also be considered. All accepted submissions will be displayed online, at www.sciforum.net/conference/ecmc-3, on 1-30 November 2017.

After the conference, proceedings will be published free of charge thanks to the sponsoring 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 or at a discounted price, 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 to the Pharmaceuticals editorial office at ecmc@mdpi.com.

We thank you in advance for your attendance of this conference and look forward to a stimulating exchange.
