Barcelona 2017–2018 | Upcoming Conferences Organized by MDPI

We are glad to announce that, on Friday 8 September 2017, the 1st Molecules Medicinal Chemistry Symposium will be taking place in Barcelona at the School of Pharmacy and Food Sciences of the University of Barcelona, Spain.

Our open-access journal Molecules is the sponsor of this one-day monographic symposium that will address the topic of Emerging Drug Discovery Approaches against Infectious Diseases. In this sense, our intention is to provide a forum for discussion from novel biological targets and resistance mechanisms to the design and synthesis of new structural classes or the implementation of innovative therapeutic approaches against bacterial, protozoan, viral, and fungal infections. The event will gather together over 70 experts in the field of medicinal chemistry from more than 15 countries and 3 continents, mostly from academia but also from pharmaceutical industry and product development partnerships, therefore offering a very interesting platform for international networking in this field.

Following this event, Barcelona will also be hosting two more MDPI Conferences this year:

  • The 5th International Symposium on Sensor Science will be held on 2729 September 2017 at the AXA Convention Centre in Barcelona, Spain.
    This event, sponsored by our journal Sensors, will address the recent developments made in the field of sensor technology. To properly do so, the event will be split into 5 different sessions, each one of them focussing on the following different aspects of the field: chemosensors, bio-inspired and bio-based strategies for sensing and fluidics, biosensors, sensors for structures, and sensors for applications.
    The registration to attend the event is open until 7 September 2017.

  • The First International Conference on Symmetry will be held on 16–18 October 2017 at the Parc Cientific de Barcelona (PCB), Barcelona, Spain.
    This conference, sponsored by our journal Symmetry, is an excellent opportunity to attend an event where cutting-edge ideas and knowledge on symmetry will be presented and shared. During the three days of the conference, a variety of subjects ranging from fields such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science and biology will be brought together under the fundamental scientific phenomenon that is symmetry.
    The registration to attend the event is open until 25 September 2017.
