XXX Symposium on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery will be held online on September 16-18, 2024. The number of participants is limited to 420 due to the technical constraints.
XXX Symposium on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery continues traditions of the Symposia started in 1995 at the initiative of the Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Archakov. Alexander Archakov and Vladimir Poroikov co-chaired the first one, held in the framework of the Second Russian National Congress “Man and Drugs” (Moscow, 12-15 April 1995). The subsequent Symposia were being organized annually by the Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Nikolai Zefirov and Professor Vladimir Poroikov. Since 2018 Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vladimir Poroikov and Professor Roman Efremov are the Symposium’s Co-Chairs.
Starting from 2021, because of the COVID-2019 pandemic, the Symposiums on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery were held online using the cloud video conferencing platform. Programs, presentations, videos, and other materials of a previous Symposiums are available on the 2021, 2022, 2023 Symposium’s websites.
Considering the urgent need for international cooperation to overcome the emerging challenges, we continue to hold the Symposium as an International event, where all lectures, oral talks, and brief communications will be presented in English.
To extend the possibilities of communication and discussions, the poster session will be held in the framework of the Symposium.
Posters of young scientists will be evaluated by the International Scientific Committee. Twelve young scientists will be selected for flash presentations at the Young Scientists’ Contest, and Diplomas will award the winners.
The Symposia on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery are arranged by scientists for scientists; neither commercial entity is involved in preparing the meeting nor registration fee is requested.
We look forward to seeing you at the XXX Symposium on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery!
