The Second Kazan Summer School in Chemoinformatics (KSSCI-2015) has been held in Kazan, Russia, from 6th to 9th July 2015.
This School was organized in the framework of the project 14-43-00024 funded by Russian Scientific Foundation.
Chemoinformatics is a new and highly demanded multidisciplinary domain of modern chemistry in the intersection of chemistry, biology, mathematics and informatics. The main objectives of this domain are storing and management of chemical information and its use to create compounds, reactions and materials possessing desired features. Chemoinformatics is widely used to create new drugs for medicinal 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 is now the third active educational program of Chemoinformatics in the world. Similar programs are opened in Moscow State University (MSU) and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT).
This School is the second Summer School on Chemoinformatics in Kazan, the first one took place in 2012 and united about 90 participants from 7 countries. 12 lectures, 4 tutorials and 10 oral reports were presented in the School. The site of latter School is accesible here
KSSCI-2015 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.
