Scientific Program

The preliminary scientific program will be divided into six plenary sessions:

  • Cheminformatics
  • Structure-Activity and Structure-Property Prediction
  • Structure-Based Drug Design and Virtual Screening
  • Analysis of Large Chemistry Spaces
  • Integration of Chemical Information with other Resources
  • Dealing with Biological Complexity

Poster Session

An extended poster session will be part of the scientific program. Poster board dimensions are 100 cm high and 125 cm wide. To ensure your poster fits the board, we recommend that posters are printed to A0 in landscape orientation (84 cm high and 118.9 cm wide). You are free to choose either landscape or portrait orientation and any size as long as your poster fits within the dimension of the poster boards.


The CSA Trust Mike Lynch Award will tentatively be awarded on Sunday evening. That same evening the awardee will deliver the keynote address.


Information about the registration is available on the registration page.


An exhibition featuring both commercially available software and also software from research projects and Special Interest Group (SIG) sessions will form an integral part of the conference. There will be an Exhibition page with more details at a later date.

Special Issue of Journal of Cheminformatics

Traditionally, after the conference you are encouraged to submit your presentation/poster for publication in a special ICCS issue of the Journal of Cheminformatics (J Cheminform) scheduled to appear in early 2023. Currently the organizers are arranging a similar arrangement. We expect that papers can be submitted at any date up to December 1st, through the J Cheminform editorial management system. Authors submitting papers should mention in their cover letter that the manuscript is for the ICCS special issue and refer to the Contribution ID attached to their abstract. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed according to the J Cheminform submission guidelines.


The official conference language is English.

Dress Code

Dress code for the conference is business casual.
