Welcome from the Chairs

Cancellation of the 1st International Electronic Conference on Oral Drug Delivery

Dear Colleagues,

Due to a limited number of high quality submissions, we have unfortunately had to cancel this e-conference. However, we still want to offer contributing authors the chance to present their work. As such, we invite you to submit a full paper to Pharmaceutics free of charge.

The Organizing Committee wants to thank you very much for your interest and support.

Kind regards,

Welcome Message from the Chair of the 1st International Electronic Conference on Oral Drug Delivery

I take great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st International Electronic Conference on Oral Drug Delivery (ECODD-1). The conference is intended to provide lateral and inter disciplinary programme to cover recent developments in oral drug delivery with a focus on material properties, dosage form design and biopharmaceutics. It aspires to bring together people working on both basic, as well as applied/translational interface of pharmaceutical sciences, thereby providing a platform to develop discussions and collaborations. We hope ECODD-1 would bring debates on oral delivery and consequently generate new ideas of research.

This event aims to focus on studies and strategies that cover the following topics:

The virtual conference would be held at: https://sciforum.net/conference/ECODD-2016, a platform developed by MDPI to organize electronic conferences and discussion groups. The participation is free of any charge. Accepted abstracts will be published in a meeting report. Full papers, if submitted to Pharmaceutics (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/pharmaceutics) for publication after the event, will be processed with priority and no processing fees.

We look forward to receiving your contributions in this unique event!
