The eCheminfo 2009 community of practice meeting on drug discovery
informatics will take place at Bryn Mawr College, Philadelphia 13-16
October 2009.

This annual community of practice meeting is taking place for the fifth
time and brings together a unique combination of pharmaceutical and
healthcare industry experts, principal investigators and researchers
from the academic and government sectors, and leaders from innovative
enterprises.  The smaller and more intimate meeting format pursued has
fostered the type of collaboration not always found at large conferences.

The preliminary program with abstracts received so far is now available
at http://echeminfo.com/COMTY_conferencesprog09 and will be updated as
remaining abstracts are received.

The topics addressed this year will include Structure-based Drug Design
Applications and Methods, Macromolecular Interactions and Networks, Data
Analysis and Visualisation, PDB Ligands, and Predictive Toxicology.

A pre-conference best practices workshop on Binding Energy prediction
will take place October 12, 2009.

This meeting will take place concurrently with the InnovationWell 2009
meeting addressing the topics of Collaboration in Discovery and
Development, Translational Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and
Biomarkers, Blood Brain Barrier modeling and Predictive Toxicology.

Below is a short summary of the eCheminfo program.
