This second version of iCBSM will be held at the Centro de Bioinformática y Simulación Molecular (CBSM) which is associated to the School of Bioinformatics Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universidad de Talca, Chile. The conference aim is to maintain and strengthen the research collaborations already initiated with the research groups participating in the previous version of the congress (2015). In addition, it seeks to extend international cooperation networks with research groups located in North America and Europe, mostly in lines of research that are still weak in our group.
This conference is in large measure targeted at graduate and PhD students, bioinformatics engineers, researchers and scientists involved in areas related to Medicinal chemistry, Biophysics, Computational Materials chemistry and Biochemistry, Protein Engineering and Biotechnology and Bioinformatics/Genomics. Available spaces: 80-100 attendants.
Abstract preparation and submission
The program will be built around talks from accepted abstracts and international/national invited speakers. Abstracts will fall into two categories: oral and poster presentation. We kindly invite all interested graduate and PhD students, as well as postdocs and researchers, to submit your abstracts. The deadline for the abstract submission, either for oral presentation or poster format, is October 15, 2017. The Word template for the preparation of abstracts (in english) can be downloaded from the link: Abstract_iCBSM-2017.doc, and these must be submitted via the link [Submit New Abstract].
MOL2NET DOI Indexing and MDPI Journals Issues Publication
This year iCBSM is associated to MOL2NET International Conference Series on Multidisciplinary Sciences, MDPI Sciforum, Basel,Switzerland, UPV/EHU, Bilbao, Spain. In this sense, all the abstracts and video conferences of the iCBSM conference will be published on the Sciforum site in open access modality totally free of charge and indexed with a doi number.
In parallel, the authors are welcome to send full written versions of their papers or talks to some of the special issues edited by members of the MOL2NET committee for different journals of the editorial MDPI (http://www.mdpi.com/). Some of these special issues are now in call for papers, submissions are welcome a posteriori, in parallel, or totally independently from the conference. Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. In order to send a proposal of special issue contact the chairperson of the conference Prof. González-Díaz H.
