The 8th International Conference on Chemical Structures is seeking presentations of
novel research and emerging technologies for the following plenary sessions:

   o  Cheminformatics
         >  molecular similarity and diversity
         >  library analysis and profiling
         >  chemical information visualization
         >  representation and searching of conformationally flexible compounds

   o  Structure-Activity and Structure-Property Prediction
         >  data fusion, consensus modeling and multi-property optimization
         >  prediction of ADME/Tox properties
         >  industrialized and large-scale QSAR/QSPR model building

   o  Structure-Based Drug Design and Virtual Screening
         >  protein flexibility in docking
         >  improved chemical models and scoring functions
         >  integration of virtual and high-throughput screening

   o  Analysis of Large Data Sets 
         >  data mining of HTS data
         >  analysis of large chemistry spaces
         >  machine learning

   o  Informatics for Bridging Between Chemistry and Biology
         >  integrative discovery informatics
         >  virtual pharmacology
         >  target family based approaches to drug discovery

   o  Virtual Chemistry
         >  structure- and ligand-based de-novo design
         >  synthesis planning and design
         >  mining electronic lab journals
         >  reaction networks, reaction databases and reaction retrieval

We encourage the submission of papers on both applications and case studies as well
as on method development and algorithmic work. The final program will be a balance
of these two aspects.

Posters can be submitted for any of the above and related areas, but we also welcome
contributions in any aspect of the computer handling of chemical structure
information, such as:

   o  representation and manipulation of organic and inorganic compounds,
      biomacromolecules and polymers

   o  new algorithms for searching and managing chemical structures and reactions

   o  3D databases and pharmacophore modeling

   o  (automatic) structure elucidation

   o  combinatorial chemistry, diversity analysis

   o  web technology and its effect on chemical information

   o  electronic publishing

   o  searching/dealing with patent spaces

   o  MM or QM/MM simulations

   o  practical free energy calculations

   o  material sciences

The conference will feature a new product review session for commercial presentations.

Visit the conference website at for more
information, including details on procedures for online abstract submission and
conference registration.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 15 February 2008.

We hope to see you in Noordwijkerhout.
