Subject: 15.07.06 Kazan Summer School in Chemoinformatics, Kazan, Russia
We are pleased to inform you that the Second Kazan Summer School 
in Chemoinformatics (KSSCI-2015 ) will be held in Kazan, Russia, 
6 - 9 July, 2015.
Summer School on Chemoinformatics is a regular event, aiming to create 
the conditions for training specialists of Chemoinformatics, as well 
as to create educational and scientific network of scientists, 
pharmaceutical and chemical industry representatives, IT specialists 
and software developers. In this school special attention will be paid 
to material design and new applications of chemoinformatics.
Notice that the First Summer School on Chemoinformatics in Kazan in 
2013 united about 90 participants from 7 countries. 12 lectures, 4 
tutorials and 10 oral reports were presented in the School.
The main topics of the School are:
-Basics of chemoinformatics and QSAR approaches,
-Sources of chemical information, its storage and retrieval,
-SAR/QSAR/QSPR modeling,
-Structure-based drug design.
The program of the School includes:
-  Lectures by leading scientists devoted to different aspects of 
Chemoinformatics and computer-aided materials and drug design
-  Key-note research lectures 
-  Oral presentations of the School participants
-  Tutorials with modern software and on-line resources (LigandScout, 
LeadIT, SciFinder, etc.)
-  Poster session
-  Contest for young scientists for the best poster and oral 

Tutorials will cover the following areas: chemical databases, QSAR, 
pharmacophores and docking.
