17th German Conference on Cheminformatics and EuroSAMPL Satellite Workshop

May 8 -12, 2022 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen/Germany


The division "Computers in Chemistry" (CIC) of the German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker e.V.) cordially invites you to participate in the

17th German Conference on Cheminformatics and EuroSAMPL Satellite Workshop

GCC 2022  May 8 - 10, 2022 and
EuroSAMPL May 11 - 12, 2022 
in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany

Aims of the joint conference

The GCC reflects and highlights the important role of Cheminformatics, which connects the modern information and data-driven world with computational modelling of molecular systems. It spans a wide range of subjects related to the use of computers in chemistry, pharmacy, materials science and biology; from informatics and data science to atomistic modelling, and from fundamental academic research to industrial applications. The scientific programme will include plenary and contributed lectures, research telegrams (PhD students only), posters and software presentations.

The EuroSAMPL satellite workshop continues the series of events supporting discussions between participants and contributors to the SAMPL challenges (Statistical Assessment of the Modeling of Proteins and Ligands). These were established in 2008 as community-wide blind challenges aimed at advancing computational techniques in rational drug design, covering problems ranging from host-guest and protein-ligand complexes to small molecule physicochemical properties. The SAMPL challenge series has attracted widespread interest from scientists engaged in the field of computer-aided drug design around the world.  EuroSAMPL will encompass lectures, contributions, and posters from participants during the recent SAMPL challenges, covering also aspects of industry-academia data exchange.

We hope to attract both theoreticians and experimentalists to bring together communities for advancing both data generation/curation and model development.

We will also celebrate the 40th anniversary of the division CIC, stay tuned for a special event!

The conference language is English.
