The international symposium addressed a broad range of modern research topics in the field of computers and chemistry. The focus was on recent developments and trends in the fields of Chemoinformatics and Drug Discovery, Chemical Information, Patents and Databases, Molecular Modeling, Computational Material Science and Nanotechnology. In addition, other contributions from the field of Computational Chemistry were welcome.
The conference was opened traditionally with a "Free-Software-Session" on Sunday afternoon right before the official conference opening at 5 pm including three talks about the Open Source projects Bingo, Dingo and OrChem. In parallel the "Chemoinformatics Market Place" took place including software tutorials by Chemical Computing Group, Hemlholtz-Center Munich and the Cambridge Crystallograhic Data Center.
The scientific program was opened by an evening talk giving an overview on the field of Systems Chemistry (Günter von Kiedrowski). In addition, the program included six plenary lectures (Eberhard Voit (USA), Knut Baumann (Germany), Thomas Kostka (Germany), Anthony J. Williams (USA), Kalr-Heinz Baringhaus (Germany), Christoph Sotriffer (Germany)], 17 general lectures as well as 54 poster presentations.
