July 15-16, 2017

Location

Mount Snow
West Dover, VT Site Information

Organizers

Chairs:
Julian E. Fuchs & Andrea Volkamer

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 17, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by April 15, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Computer Aided Drug Design is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The aim of this GRS is to allow the participants to acquire a broader picture of the exciting new developments in the field and to identify new unmet needs. The format supports the participants to informally get to know the other people in the field who are at a similar scientific stage and provides a platform for discussion including directives for their career paths.

This GRS will focus on the latest developments in computer-aided drug design, covering a diverse range of methods from cheminformatics to molecular simulations. Data-driven as well as physics-based approaches are welcome focusing on individual molecular interactions as well as holistic tasks to predict pharmaceutically relevant endpoints, i.e. novel therapeutic targets and pockets, ligand binding, polypharmacology, or toxicity. Special attention will also be put on open source code and data bases or web services.

Instruction for applications: All talks slots are reserved for young scientists. All participants are expected to apply for a talk, with those not selected for giving a talk being expected to present a poster.

Application Instructions

The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 15, 2017. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
