We invite contributed papers from members of academic, government research and commercial 
organizations on areas of new research and innovation involving drug discovery research 
informatics. The work presented should involve innovative new method development or 
application to drug discovery problems and involving methods from computational chemistry, 
computational biology, cheminformatics or bioinformatics. Studies including experimental 
work in medicinal chemistry, screening, experimental toxicology, pre-clinical evaluation, 
lead optimisation and translational medicine are welcome.  Please visit website for more 

Bursary Awards 
Bursary Awards will be used to support the attendance of a selection of academic young 
investigators at the meeting. Applicants can be working in any area of research related 
to drug discovery at the postdoctoral, graduate student and senior undergraduate levels.
