CALL FOR PAPERS IWBBIO 2015, Special Session: Advances in Drug Discovery


2015 International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering

(IWBBIO 2015)

15-17 April, 2015. Granada (SPAIN).

It is our great pleasure to announce the 2nd International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO 2015), which will take place in Granada (Spain) in April, 2015. Details and instructions for the conference can be found at the conference web site ( The conference will be devoted to current researches in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Bioengineering, and we are looking for papers falling into the following Special Session (SS12):


Advances in Drug Discovery

We welcome papers, not submitted elsewhere for review, with a focus in topics of interest ranging from but not limited to:

• Target identification and validation.

• Chemoinformatics & Computational Chemistry: Methodological basis and applications to drug discovery of: QSAR, Docking, CoMFA-like methods, Quantum Chemistry & Molecular Mechanics (QM/MM), High-performance Computing (HPC), Cloud Computing, Biostatistics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Bio-inspired Algorithms like Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Genetic Algorithms, or Swarm Intelligence.

• Bioinformatics & Biosystems: Methodological basis and applications to drug design, target or biomarkers discovery of: Alignment tools, Pathway analysis, Complex Networks, Non-linear methods, Microarray analysis, Software and Web servers.

• High Throughput Screening (HTS) of drugs; Fragment Based Drug Discovery; Combinatorial chemistry and synthesis.

We encourage you to submit paper focused on interesting, relevant and original works that are related to this Special Session (SS12). We also admit the submission of short abstracts, which must be extended to full paper in case of being accepted.
