Virtual Meeting

Online programme

A stimulating programme will showcase the best and most exciting developments in the Dutch chemical community. By maximizing opportunities for interaction and scientific exchange we expect to continue to build the chemical community, including junior and senior scientists in academia and industry.

We are now in the process of researching our options in order to present the participants with an exciting and inviting online programme. This means that we also have to think about a different programme for the digital CHAINS experience. For instance: though CHAINS will still be 2 days, you can expect the programme to be shorter than normal. As we do not want you sitting behind a screen all day, we will include plenty of breaks. We are also thinking about a social programme part that you can join optionally. We will inform you of our plans soon and hope you will all be excited to participate! We expect registration to open in September.

Ideas for the online programme?

If you have ideas that can help us create an unforgettable online CHAINS 2020. Please contact us via  .

Co-create the Chains 2020 programme by submitting abstracts for oral presentations in the parallel sessions or a poster! Please find more information and guidelines below.

Online Event

The Medicinal Chemistry Division (DCF) of Italian Chemical Society (SCI) is glad to invite you to the first “Trends in Medicinal Chemistry Online Symposia” (TIMCOS).

This series of symposia brings together experts in medicinal chemistry synthesis, computational methods in drug design, analytical methods in drug discovery and novel technology platforms. The internationally-renowned speakers will describe how their research journey has developed in response to contemporary challenges: inspirational and innovative lessons in drug research. The symposia will be interactive with questions and answers at the end of each talk.

We strongly believe in the importance of consolidating the interactions of our Community in science and beyond and for this reason the participation is OPENED to all the members of DCF and all the members of scientific societies affiliated to EFMC and it is FREE.

This meeting remains unique with respect to the breadth of participants and focus on new approaches to discovering drugs. 

The first symposium will take place online on the 10th of December 2020 and will be focused on new strategies in medicinal chemistry synthesis.

We are glad to announce the final program of the first symposium:

  • 3.00 p.m. (CET) Opening
  • 3.10 p.m. (CET) Photocatalysis: Paolo Melchiorre (ICIQ, Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia-ES)
  • 3.55 p.m. (CET) Flow Chemistry: Antimo Gioiello (University of Perugia - IT)
  • 4.40 p.m. (CET) Electrochemistry: Kevin Lam (University of Geenwich - UK)

On behalf of organizing and scientific committees we invite you to join us during this first edition of TIMCOS and we look forward to see you at the meeting.

Virtual Meeting

The Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) of the Royal Society of Chemistry will be hosting its fourteenth postgraduate symposium for PhD students and postdoctoral workers researching in biological or medicinal chemistry and related areas. The event will be held online on Friday 11th December 2020. Researchers working in these areas are invited to participate. The meeting will be run online from 10 am – 3.30 pm and the day will consist of 10 oral presentations delivered live (8 student and 2 keynote). Each 15 minute student talk will be followed by 5 minutes for questions. In each session there will be a 20 minute keynote talk from an industrial or academic chemist

In addition, the meeting’s popular poster session will also transfer online. Posters will be hosted on the conference website in the run-up to the meeting and there will be an opportunity to interact with the poster presenters through Twitter or email throughout the week

The BMCS judges will be awarding prizes to participants. There will be prizes of £500 for the best oral presentation and of £250 for the best poster. These will be announced at the end of the day. If you are interested in presenting your relevant PhD or post-doctoral work as a talk or poster please submit a full-page abstract by 5th October 2020 in addition to registering.

For more information and to submitt your abstract please contact: maggi@maggichurchouseevents.co.uk
