Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

Following the great success of the previous editions organized under the excellent chairmanship of Dr. Jean Jacques Vanden Eynde, we are pleased to cordially invite you to join us at 8th International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry, sponsored by the MDPI open access journal Pharmaceuticals. This platform seeks to provide a discussion forum for scientists from all over the world for recent developments and innovative ideas in Medicinal Chemistry. This will give students, researchers, and experts the opportunity to share their latest theories, results, models, and applications in this multidisciplinary area of knowledge. This is an entirely on-line conference that will be held during the month of November at https://ecmc2022.sciforum.net/. No registration fee is charged to participants, and there is the added advantage that there is no cost of flights, hotels, etc.

The conference will be organized around the aims and scope of the journal Pharmaceuticals, which include the following general topics:

Small molecules as drug candidates

Biomolecules, natural products, phages, and cells as therapeutic tools

Biological targets and biomarkers

Radiopharmaceutical sciences, radiochemistry, (hybrid) imaging, and nuclear medicine

Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics

Pharmaceutical preparations and drug delivery

The format of the conference is as follows. Researchers are invited to provide a short abstract (250 words maximum without figures and without references) online at https://sciforum.net/user/submission from now until 21 September 2022. Each participant can submit only one abstract as a presenting author and a maximum of three submissions per research group. All authors will be notified by 1 October 2022 with regard to the acceptance status of their abstract, at which point they will be asked to present their work (in English) in the form of a poster, a slideshow, or a video using the templates provided by the conference (see Instructions for Authors). All accepted submissions will be displayed online, open for discussion, comments, and questions, during the entire conference, at https://ecmc2022.sciforum.net/, on 1–30 November 2022.

All participants will be invited to submit a full paper describing their work, which would be peer reviewed and, upon acceptance, published in a Special Issue covering the event in Pharmaceuticals, ISSN 1424-8247) sponsor of the conference. A 20% discount on the Article Processing Charge will be applied.

The most outstanding works, as selected by the scientific committee, will be rewarded with grants offered by the sponsoring journal Pharmaceuticals.

We look forward to engaging in exciting discussions and hearing new ideas and perspectives from experts in the field. All participants are welcome to join the online conference.

Kind regards,

Dr. Alfredo Berzal-Herranz

Prof. Dr. Maria Emília Sousa

  • Based on the submitted abstract, the conference committee will conduct a pre-evaluation of whether a contribution from the authors of the abstract will be welcome for 8th International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry. All authors will be notified by 1 October 2022 with regard to the acceptance status of their abstract.
  • If the abstract is accepted for this conference, the author will be invited to prepare a full description of their work in the form of a poster, slideshow, or video at their best convenience, until the submission deadline of 12 October 2022.
  • Posters must be uploaded as a PDF file using the Poster_template.pptx file available at the end of this section.
  • Slideshows must be uploaded as a PDF file using the PPT_template.pptx file available at the end of this section.
  • Flash communications (5 minutes) and communications (10-20 minutes) must be uploaded as an mp4 file (video) using the PPT_template.pptx file available at the end of this section.

This must be uploaded before 12 October 2022, for a final check and approval. Each work will be directed to the appropriate panel (posters, slideshows, flash communications, communications) by the Conference Office.

Contributions will be displayed on the website using Sciforum.net’s proprietary slides viewer and will be accessible at https://ecmc2022.sciforum.net/ at the time of the conference. They can be prepared in exactly the same way as for any traditional conference where research results can be presented. Contributions must be converted to PDF format before submission, so that they can be easily and automatically converted to be displayed online.
The organization of posters is left completely up to the authors, provided that they use the conference’s template.

The accepted contributions will probably be published as one dedicated volume in the MDPI Medical Sciences Forum journal. Publication of proceedings paper is free of charge.

Note: Before publication, Medical Sciences Forum journal will review accepted papers using the powerful text comparison tool: iThenticate. This procedure aims to prevent scholarly and professional plagiarism.
Submissions with a high repetition rate and lack of novelty will not be published in the conference proceedings.

We recommend the following organization for your slideshow or video, using the Conference’s template:

  • Length of the presentation: no more than 30 slides
  • Slide 1 (strictly one slide): Title, authors’ names, affiliation(s), email address of corresponding author, logos of the laboratory and/or institution (not mandatory).
  • Slide 2 (strictly one slide): Graphical abstract; repeat the title of the presentation but avoid other text as far as possible.
  • Slide 3 (strictly one slide): Abstract (max. 250 words) and 3–5 keywords, separated by semicolons.
  • Slide 4 and following slides: These should contain (in the given sequence) Introduction, Results and Discussion, Conclusions.
  • Last slide: Acknowledgments, and logos of sponsors (not mandatory).
