Welcome to the QSAR, Chemoinformatics and Modeling Society (QCMS) website!
Membership of QCMS is open to scientists involved in QSAR, cheminformatics, and modeling for medicinal, agricultural, or environmental chemistry. We encourage and invite all scientists working in these fields to join our Society.
QCMS hosts the European Symposia on Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships (EuroQSAR). The 24th EuroQSAR will take place in Barcelona in September 2024 and will be chaired by Prof. Jordi Mestres (University of Girona, Spain).
QCMS awards the Hansch and Fujita Awards biennially and the awardees deliver Award Lectures at the EuroQSAR symposia.
The International QSAR Society was founded in 1989 at the QSAR Gordon Conference in Tilton, New Hampshire, USA.
At the 1995 QSAR Gordon Conference, the Society was renamed as “The QSAR and Modelling Society”.
In spring 2007, the Board renamed the Society to “The Cheminformatics and QSAR Society”.
During the 21st EuroQSAR meeting in 2016, the Board decided to draw together all the computational activities covered by our Society since 1989, creating a new Society chaired by Andrea Cavalli called:
QSAR, Cheminformatics and Modeling Society (QCMS).
This change reflected the strong worldwide support for cheminformatics, modeling, and computational activities, as well as the Society’s history and the interest of its current members in furthering these fields.
During the 23rd EuroQSAR meeting in 2022, Rebecca Wade, Andrea Cavalli and Giovanni Bottegoni were elected to the Board of Directors of QCMS and charged with adapting the organizational structure of the society to its activities.
