I am posting details for the eCheminfo Community of Practice Drug
Discovery Design Methods & Applications Workshop Meeting in December
2008 in Hyderabad, India.  Please note that the deadline to apply for
the bursary is September 12, 2008.

Drug Discovery Design Methods & Applications Workshop
December 15-18, 2008
IIIT Hyderabad, Hyderabad, India

Please visit http://echeminfo.colayer.net/comty_hyderabadworkshop08

Virtual screening, structure-based drug design, lead optimisation and
predictive ADME/toxicology supporting decision making in drug
discovery
a Hands-on eCheminfo Workshop
This workshop precedes the “Latest Advances in Drug Discovery
Modelling & Informatics” eCheminfo Community of Practice InterAction
Meeting
December 19-20, 2008

Co-organised in Partnership by IIIT Hyderabad , JNU NewDelhi ,
Seascape Learning, and Douglas Connect
Facilitated by Barry Hardy

Work through in detail and discuss practical examples, methods and
emerging techniques with leading modelling experts!

Virtual Screening & Docking
Structure-based Drug Design
Ligand Optimisation & Library Design
Structure Search, Similarity and Property Estimation
Data Mining, Analysis & Visualisation
Pharmacophore Modelling for Lead Identification
Fragment-based Drug Design
Predictive ADME
QSAR-based Predictive Toxicology

These workshops are aimed to provide a set of stimulating workshops
using latest advanced modelling techniques of relevance to chemists,
life scientists and modellers working in drug discovery. Participants
should return to their labs with new ideas, best practices and
software experiences to maximise productivity in their own drug
discovery research activities.

Workshop groups will study problems with hands-on examples using
leading-edge software and discuss complex issues highlighted by
examples and case studies presented by instructors.

Software packages and an IT classroom will be used by instructors and
participants to work through drug discovery and optimisation problems.
Participants may propose problems and issues to the faculty ahead of
the workshop. Participants will also have ample opportunity to discuss
their perspectives and criticisms of the methods studied and should
take-away key nuggets of understanding from these intensive sessions.

Workshop Leaders
Johann Gasteiger (Molecular Networks, Germany), Jeff Wiseman (Locus
Pharmaceuticals, USA), Indira Ghosh (JNU, New Delhi, India), Paul
Hawkins (OpenEye, USA), Barry Hardy (Douglas Connect, Switzerland),
Peter Oledzki (BioSolveIT, Germany), Dhananjay Bhattacharyya (Saha
Institute of Nuclear Physics, India), Ismael Zamora (Pompeu Fabra
University and Lead Molecular Design, Spain), Wojciech Plonka (Fujitsu
Group, Japan), Madhavi Sastry (Schrodinger)

A Bursary Award will be used to support the attendance of one academic
participant at the workshop.
