Upcoming Special Issues

Call for papers: Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Chemical Structures

The 11th International Conference on Chemical Structures (ICCS 2018) will be held on May 27-31, 2018. Building on past successes of this well-known conference series, the 2018 event will offer a strong scientific program covering all aspects of cheminformatics, molecular modeling and computer-aided drug design. For this international event, the organizers are seeking oral and poster presentations of novel research and emerging technologies for the plenary sessions on the topics Cheminformatics Methods, Structure-Activity and Structure-Property Prediction, Structure-Based Drug Design and Virtual Screening, Analysis of Large Chemical Data Sets, Integration of Chemical Information, and Dealing with Biological Complexity.

Journal of Cheminformatics announces a special article collection titled “Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Chemical Structures”. We invite authors whose papers were accepted for ICCS 2018 to submit an extended version to this special article collection. Please note that submissions must fall within the scope of the journal, and be conform the journal’s expectations of Open Science. If in doubt about acceptable use proprietary components, please send a presubmission inquiry.

Papers will be continuously peer-reviewed according to Journal of Cheminformatics author guidelines and published to a specific collection page on the journal, as well as in the regular volume. Copyright for the publications remains with the authors under a Creative Commons licence, unless a public domain licence (e.g. US Government) is required. Please note that journal guidelines differ slightly from the ICCS meeting guidelines. Authors are referred to the Journal author guidelines for details.

The deadline for submission is October 1st, 2018. Please submit manuscripts using the online system, and select the special article collection “Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Chemical Structures” and mention the ICCS contribution title on which the manuscript is based. Please note that review papers will not be considered for this article collection. This special article collection for Journal of Cheminformatics is Guest Edited by Gerard van Westen (Leiden University, The Netherlands) and Markus Wagener (Grünenthal, Germany).

Journal of Cheminformatics levies an article-processing charge (APC) for each article accepted for publication. For assistance with the APC for authors who do not have access to APC funding, please visit our OA Funding Support Service page, or get in touch with Editorial at the email below.

Call for papers: Novel applications of machine learning in cheminformatics

There has been a renewed interest in novel machine learning techniques in cheminformatics during the last years. This has been driven both by new methods, access to larger and imbalanced datasets as well as progress in high-performance and cloud computing. For example, methods such as conformal prediction, deep learning and matrix factorization have already made a significant impact and are part of making the drug discovery process more data-driven and efficient.

The Journal of Cheminformatics announces a special article collection titled “Novel applications of machine learning in cheminformatics”. We welcome submissions on all types of cheminformatics-related research involving applications or methods of machine learning with a novel direction. Note that we will not consider publications that simply apply traditional machine learning models to a new dataset or reanalyzing an old dataset with a different method. Novel directions might include (but are not limited to):

  • New ways of applying machine learning methods
  • Applications to new areas not traditionally covered by machine learning
  • Confidence/probabilistic predictors
  • Large-scale applications using modern e-infrastructure
  • Novel ways of modeling particularly complex or problematic datasets

The 6th Symposium on Conformal and Probabilistic Prediction with Applications (COPA 2017) was held at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden on June 14-16, 2017. We invite authors whose papers were accepted to this conference (see Proceedings of Machine Learning Research, Volume 60) in the special section on cheminformatics to submit an extended version to this special article collection.

Papers will be continuously peer-reviewed according to Journal of Cheminformatics author guidelines and published in the collection, but the deadline for submission is March 20th, 2018. Please submit manuscripts using the online system, and select the special article collection “Novel applications of machine learning in cheminformatics”. Please note that review papers will not be considered for this article collection. This special article collection for Journal of Cheminformatics is Guest Edited by Ola Spjuth, Uppsala University, Sweden. 

Journal of Cheminformatics levies an article-processing charge (APC) for each article accepted for publication. For assistance with the APC for authors who do not have access to APC finding, please visit our OA Funding Support Service page, or get in touch with Editorial at the email below.
