The Third Kazan Summer School on Chemoinformatics (KSSCI2017) was held in Kazan, Russia, from 5th to 7th July 2017.
Every 2 years, Kazan Summer School on Chemoinformatics welcomes young scientists from all over the world for learning basics of chemoinformatics and related disciplines, having tutorials on “gold standard” software, and discussing the scientific and industrial achievements.
The Chemoinformatics is a new and highly demanded multidisciplinary domain of modern chemistry, that is on the intersection of chemistry, biology, mathematics and informatics. The main aims of this domain are storing and management of chemical information and its applying to create compounds, reactions and materials having desired features.
Chemoinformatics is widely used to create new drugs for medical and veterinary purposes, as well as innovative materials, catalysts, reagents for chemical industry. Despite the large potential demand for specialists in Chemoinformatics, educational programs of this discipline in Russia are not yet quite developed. In 2012 in Kazan Federal University (KFU) the Master program of Chemoinformaitcs has been opened, which has now become the third active educational program of Chemoinformatics in the world. In Russia, similar programs were recently opened in ITMO University (Saint-Peterburg) and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Moscow).
This School is the Third Summer School on Chemoinformatics in Kazan, the first one took place in 2013 and united about 90 participants from 7 countries. 12 lectures, 4 tutorials and 10 oral reports were presented in the School. The Second Kazan Summer School on Chemoinformatics attracted more than 100 participants from 16 countries. 19 lectures, 4 tutorials and 4 oral reports were presented there.
KSSCI2017 aimed to create the conditions for training specialists of Chemoinformatics in Russia, as well as to create educational and scientific environment for scientists, pharmaceutical and chemical industry representatives, IT specialists and software developers.
