The Symposium will take place at ACV - Austria Center Vienna (Bruno-Kreisky-Platz 1 - 1220 Vienna)
The EFMC-ISMC 2008 Symposium is organized by the Austrian Chemical Society on behalf of the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC).
This symposium is recognized worldwide as one of the leading Medicinal Chemistry meetings, as proven by its large international attendance, which varies between 1200 and 1500 participants from all over Europe, but also from the United States and Asia.
The Symposium will focus on important new scientific and technological developments in the drug discovery process; particularly those relevant to medicinal chemistry. The meeting will create an environment for in-depth, informed discussions highlighting the importance of medicinal chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry, academia and drug research. It will also provide opportunities to re-emphasise the crucial position of medicinal chemistry in the drug discovery process and its pivotal role in linking and exploiting the associated biological sciences. Therefore, ISMC-2008 intends to create a forum for all scientists interested in medicinal chemistry and related fields.
