27th Molecular Modeling Workshop [website]
February 25 - 27, 2013
Organized by Stefan Guessregen (Universitaet Erlangen/Nuernberg) and Harald Lanig (Universitaet Erlangen/Nuernberg)
This workshop provides research students and new postdoctoral scientists the perfect opportunity to present their research to the molecular modeling community. Scientists at the beginning of their academic careers are able to meet new colleagues in academia and industry. Every year, the organisers welcome both poster or lecture contributions in English or German from all areas of molecular modeling including life sciences, physical sciences, material sciences and the nano sciences. The aim of the Modeling Workshop is to introduce research in progress. The workshop is the perfect venue to introduce new methods in molecular modeling that can be applied to many disciplines. The workshop is suitable for everyone, those who want to gain experience in presentation skills and those who just want to network in a friendly relaxed environment. As in the last years, the workshop will start on monday after lunch and will end on wednesday in the early afternoon to allow you a convenient travel.

Drug Discovery Re-Invented: Emerging Role of Biotechs, Academics and Non-Profits [website]
October 16 - 19, 2013
Hilton Scottsdale Resort & Villas, Scottsdale, Arizona
Organized by William A. Kinney (Professor/Director, Natural Products Discovery Institute/IteraMed) and Charles H. Reynolds (President, Gfree, LLC)
The conference will center on new approaches to drug discovery in an industry where the landscape is changing rapidly. With large pharma reducing investment in internal early stage research, drug pipelines will increasingly be filled by alternative sources. These players include: government, academic labs, non-profits, biotech companies, and pharmaceutical “open innovation” models. Speakers will cover new developments in medicinal chemistry, natural products, structure-based design, and screening technologies. They will also provide examples of successful strategies for advancing new drug candidates in this era of distributed discovery. The previous description was take from the conference website.
