The 25th EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry - EFMC-ISMC, 2-9 September, Organizer: LDO Organisation

The 25th EFMC-ISMC Congress brought to Ljubljana over 860 participants from all around the world. Approximately one-quarter of the attendees were academics, a half were industry-affiliated individuals, and around one-third of the participants were students.

Throughout the 7-day event, 25 scientific sessions took place with 111 speakers, 7 plenary lectures, 3 award and 3 prize ceremonies, 48 exhibitors and 22 sponsors.

This year's congress presented the most recent advances in some of the areas of the medicinal chemistry. Particular emphasis was put on the first time disclosures, recent highlights in medicinal chemistry, and the impact of artificial intelligence in drug discovery.

Bernard Dacier, conference manager, explained the main advantages of the venue:

»It was the right size for the Symposium with the main auditorium, 2 additional rooms, and 1 large space for the exhibition and posters. The choice of the venue was very satisfying also because it was easy for the participants to circulate between the rooms.«

The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) is an independent association representing medicinal chemistry societies in Europe with the objective is to advance the science of medicinal chemistry by promoting cooperation, providing training, rewarding scientific excellence, and facilitating communication between the main stakeholders.
