The Seventh Joint Sheffield Conference on Chemoinformatics

The Chemical Structure Association Trust and the Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society announce their Seventh Joint Sheffield Conference on Chemoinformatics. The conference will be held at the University of Sheffield, UK from 4th-6th July 2016.

The provisional programme is now available on the conference website.

Journal of Cheminformatics is sponsoring the event, and presenters are invited to submit a paper to be published as part of an article collection in the journal. Journal of Cheminformatics is pleased to offer a 20% discount to the article-processing charge for this article collection.

For more information, please contact John Holliday of the conference organising committee.

Aims and scope

Journal of Cheminformatics is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research in all aspects of cheminformatics and molecular modelling.

Coverage includes, but is not limited to:

  • chemical information systems, software and databases, and molecular modelling
  • chemical structure representations and their use in structure, substructure, and similarity searching of chemical substance and chemical reaction databases
  • computer and molecular graphics, computer-aided molecular design, expert systems, QSAR, and data mining techniques

Editors' Profiles

Christoph Steinbeck is the head of Chemoinformatics and Metabolism at the European Bioinformatics Institute in Hinxton, Cambridge, UK.

The Steinbeck group research focuses on metabolism, metabolomics, natural products and cheminformatics and bioinformatics applications and algorithms.

His group develops and contributes to the development of leading open source software and open chemistry databases, including: the Chemistry Development Kit (CDK); Bioclipse; OrChem; CDK-Taverna; ChEBI; IntEnz and Rhea.

David Wild is Associate Professor, Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing, leading the Cheminformatics & Chemogenomics Research Group.

His research focus is on the development of algorithms and tools for large scale integrative data mining of drug discovery, chemical and biological data in the emerging fields of chemogenomics and systems chemical biology.

Tools and algorithms created in his labs include: Chem2Bio2RDF; ChemBioSpace Association Search; WENDI; ChemoHub; PlotViz; ChemViz; PubChemSR; ICEP; and ChemBioGrid.
