Challenges sponsoring the 9th Workshop in Chemical Information at the EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, 12 September 2014, May 21, 2014 08:59

The journal Challenges and MDPI will be sponsoring a prize of 2’000 CHF (Swiss Francs) for the winner of a contest aiming at identifying the best open source cheminformatic tool of the year. To enter the competition, the authors of such tools are invited to make the source code of their tool openly available (for instance using GitHub) and send a 1–2 pages description of the tool by e-mail to Dr. Luc Patiny (luc.patiny@epfl.ch).

The short description papers will be published in the journal Challenges after editorial review. The winner of the contest will be invited to present his/her tool at the 9th Workshop in Chemical Information at the EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland on 12 September 2014 (see the preliminary program here), where the prize will also be awarded. We are looking forward to the response and tools submitted to this first contest!
