The journal Challenges and MDPI are 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. In order to enter the competition, the source code has to be available in an open source format (for instance on a platform like Github). A 1 to 2 pages paper describing the software tool should be submitted to this special issue before the 15 August 2014 and 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.
