9th International Symposium on Computational Methods in Toxicology and Pharmacology Integrating Internet Resources

Dear Colleagues

It is our great pleasure to announce that 9th International Symposium on Computational Methods in Toxicology and Pharmacology Integrating Internet Resources (CMTPI-2017) will be held at Bogmallo Beach Resort in Goa, India from October 27-30, 2017. In continuation of previous CMPTI-2001 (Bordeaux , France), CMTPI-2003 (Thessaloniki , Greece), CMTPI-2005 (Shanghai , China), CMTPI-2007 (Moscow, Russia ), CMTPI-2009 (Istanbul, Turkey), CMTPI-2011 (Maribor, Slovenia), CMTPI-2013 (Seoul, Korea) and CMTPI-2015 (Chios-Greece),the CMTPI-2017 will provide an International forum for bringing together leading scientists, students and young innovative minds from different parts of the globe to share a single platform to discuss the latest developments in the emerging and interdisciplinary field of Computational Methods in Toxicology and Pharmacology including the Internet resources. It would also help to develop collaborative relationships between private and public initiatives of organizations, working in areas pertaining to the theme of the conference. The poster/oral sessions of the conference will encourage the young students to present outcome of their research works. We look forward towards your active support through participation and also by sending the participants which would go a long way in making the event a success. The Symposium will feature plenary lectures, oral talks and poster presenting sessions broadly covering the following fields:

  • Internet and databases.

  • SAR, QSPR and Molecular Modelling in Drug Discovery.

  • SAR and QSPR in Environmental Chemistry.

  • “OMIC”- Sciences and bioinformatics applications in pharmacology and toxicology.

  • Commercial and non-commercial computational tools and databases in the Internet.

  • Computational pharmacology and toxicology.

Besides the scientific aspects of the program, you will have the opportunity to visit Goa, which is a dream city situated on the sea side. We are looking forward to welcome you in Goa for the CMTPI-2017 conference.

5th CDDD Meeting

Computationally Driven Drug Discovery

November 16-17, 2017 IFOM, Milan – Italy

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.


Dear Colleagues and Friends,

A year on from the 21st edition of our EuroQSAR symposium in Verona, we are pleased to announce the incorporation of the new QSAR, Chemoinformatics, and Modeling Society (QCMS). The process took longer than expected because of the bureaucracy required for the incorporation, and the difficulties in transferring the domain from the US to Italy. However, everything is now set up and we are ready for this new adventure. I would like to thank Professors Cruciani and Costantino for their exceptional support throughout the incorporation process. I am also grateful to the members of the International Steering Committee for giving me this opportunity to launch the new Society.

One of the major strengths of QCMS is its interdisciplinary character, which includes QSAR, chemoinformatics, computational chemistry, and biology. It thus covers the many aspects of in silico drug discovery, predictive toxicology, and environmental chemistry. I’m honoured to lead QCMS and will do my best to promote computational activities throughout Europe, the US, and worldwide. The first official meeting of the new Society will be held during the 22nd EuroQSAR Symposium in Thessaloniki. I hope to meet you all there, and to discuss strategies to promote theoretical and in silico activities. I would like the new Society to be an active forum for discussions about innovative software, novel hardware architectures, and their potential impact on one of our main objectives: improving in silico predictions to make experimental activities faster, cheaper, and more effective.

I very much hope for your active participation in our Society, and I look forward to meeting you all again soon.

Yours sincerely,

Andrea Cavalli – QCMS Chair
