  • Track 2: Rational Drug Design
  • Track 3: Drug Development
  • Track 4: Structure Prediction
  • Track 5: Systems Biology
  • Track 6: Computational Biology
  • Track 7: Structural Bioinformatics
  • Track 8: Sequence Analysis
  • Track 9: Data Mining & Data Analysis
The response to International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Aided Drug Design & QSAR was huge and was attended by about 100 delegates representing 25 countries from different corners of the world.

The conference was initiated with a series of invited lectures delivered by both Honorable Guests and members of the keynote forum. The list included Dr. Wei Deng (David), ChemAxon, USA; Dr. Steven M. Muskal, Eidogen-Sertanty, Inc. USA; Dr. Umesh R. Desai, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA; Dr. Tatsuya Takagi, Osaka University, Japan; Dr. Li Xing, Pfizer, USA; Dr. Ronan Bureau, University of Caen Basse-Normandie, France and Dr. Giulio Tarro, Temple University, USA.

All the above mentioned Honorable Guests and keynote speakers gave their energetic and fruitful contributions at CADD -2012.

All accepted abstracts have been indexed in OMICS Group’s Drug Designing: Open Access as a special issue. The theme of this Conference was on “In-Silico Approaches on Computational Studies & Drug Discovery". Based on this, speaker's discussions included many recommendations.

We are also obliged to various outside experts, company representatives and other eminent personalities who supported the conference by facilitating the discussion forums. Our sincere thanks to the Organizing Committee Members for their gracious presence, support and assistance towards CADD-2012. With their unique feedback and due to the significant response from the experts in Medicinal Chemistry for CADD from all over the world, we have included the topic along with CADD.
