CMTPI 2009

It is a great honor for us to cordially invite you to the Fifth International Symposium on Computational Methods in Toxicology and Pharmacology Integrating Internet Resources (CMTPI 2009), that will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from July 04 to 08, 2009, which is Dedicated to the 80th Birth Anniversary of Professor Toshio Fujita.

Following the traditions of CMPTI-2001 (Bordeaux, France), CMTPI-2003 (Thessaloniki, Greece), CMTPI-2005 (Shanghai, China), and CMTPI-2007 (Moscow, Russia), CMTPI-2009 will provide an International forum for presentation and discussion, by both highly skilled professionals and young scientists, of recent progress and future trends in all aspects of Computational Methods in Toxicology and Pharmacology including the Internet resources. The Symposium will feature plenary lectures, oral talks and posters broadly covering the following fields:

  •  (Q)SAR, QSPR and Molecular Modelling in Drug Discovery
  •  (Q)SAR and QSPR in Environmental Chemistry 
  •  “OMIC”-sciences and bioinformatics applications in pharmacology and toxicology
  •  Commercial and non-commercial computational tools and databases in the Internet for computational pharmacology and toxicology.

Besides the scientific aspects of the programme you will have a chance to explore one of the most ancient metropolises of the world, Istanbul, which, throughout the centuries, sheltered the oldest and greatest cultures and civilizations of the humanity and where three major empires ruled the world from this powerful capital, the Romans, the Byzantines and the Ottomans, and each of these left their mark on Istanbul, both culturally and architecturally. 

It is our intention to make this Symposium a memorable event for the attendees, both scientifically and socially. 

Feel free to forward this invitation to any of colleagues who might be interested to take part in the Symposium.

We are looking forward to welcome you to Istanbul in July, 2009, for CMTPI 2009.
