.: Aim of the conference

This conference aims at discussing the state of the art of computational methods as effective tools for drug discovery. Toward this end, we have integrated topics that are, and will remain, central to the field, such as structure-based drug discovery and molecular modeling and simulations for drug design, with the introduction of novel aspects that are nowadays among the hot topics in the field of drug discovery, such as binding kinetics, and methods for target identification/validation.
