27–29 July 2022 3rd MMCS: Shaping Medicinal Chemistry for the New Decade
It is with great pleasure that we announce the 3rd Molecules Medicinal Chemistry Symposium—Shaping Medicinal Chemistry for the New Decade (MMCS2022), to be held in Rome, Italy, from 27-29 July 2022.
The conference is co-organized by the Sapienza University of Rome, Department of Drug Chemistry and Technology, and MDPI, the publisher of the open-access journal Molecules. The conference is a follow-up to the successful 2nd Molecules Medicinal Chemistry Symposium—Facing Novel Challenges in Drug Discovery (MMCS2019), held in May 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. This turned out to be a very fruitful forum that delved into numerous topics. The excellent atmosphere was created by the presence of more than 190 attendees from 30 countries.
The MMCS2022 will be organized into a number of thematic sessions, and a non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered includes:
- Molecules against drug-resistant microorganisms and SARS-CoV-2;
- Targeting proteins for degradation: PROTACS, PHOTACS, LYTACs, and molecular glues;
- Machine learning in drug design;
- Natural compounds in drug discovery;
- Multitarget drug discovery;
- Medicinal chemistry tales.
In each session, two prominent and inspiring keynote speakers will share the program with a number of oral communications selected from among the contributions submitted by young researchers. The program will be complemented by poster presentations and social events.
The 3rd MMCS: Shaping Medicinal Chemistry for the New Decade will accept abstracts only. All accepted abstracts will be available online in open access form on Sciforum.net. Participants of this conference are encouraged to contribute with a full manuscript to our one Special Issue related to the conference in the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 4.411 (2020)). The conference participants will be granted a 20% discount on the publishing fees.
- Covering author deadline: 27 June 2022;
- Late Registration: 8 July 2022.
In order to recognize the works presented during the conference in the format of posters and presentations, two awards will be offered to our conference participants, which will be announced during the award ceremony on the last day of the conference.
- Best Oral Presentation (EUR 500)
Selected by the Scientific Committee after evaluation of all selected talks presented during the conference.
- Best Poster (EUR 300)
Selected by the Scientific Committee after an evaluation of the posters received.
We look forward to seeing you in Rome.

15–30 November 2022 The 26th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry
The Electronic Conferences on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences that have been held online since 1997. Originally, it was an initiative of MDPI, and was later amalgamated with the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). It now constitutes the longest running electronic conference in the world. It maintains free participation and registration in the true spirit of open access on the World Wide Web. This year, the conference will cover a wide range of aspects involved in synthetic organic chemistry. A non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered comprises:
- General Organic Synthesis;
- Bioorganic, Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry;
- Microwave-Assisted Synthesis;
- Polymer and Supramolecular Chemistry;
- Computational Chemistry.
ECSOC-26 offers you the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without the need to travel. It will be completely free of charge—both to attend, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. There will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 4.412 (2020); 5-Year Impact Factor: 4.588 (2020)).
Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 30 September 2022 at https://ecsoc-26.sciforum.net. Once this has been accepted, the author is requested to send the full manuscript, and optionally, a PowerPoint presentation (PDF only) and/or video of their work, before 23 October 2022, to ensure there is time for a final check.
The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available on https://ecsoc-26.sciforum.net for discussion and will be published in the Journal Chemistry Proceedings for free. Once the conference is over, a CD-ROM (ISBN 978-3-0365-3286-8) will be published with the contents of the conference, which will be available on request ([email protected]) for 75 EUR each.
Participants of this conference are cordially invited to contribute a full manuscript to our Special Issue of Molecules (submission to the journal is independent from the conference proceedings and will follow the usual process of the journal, including peer-review, APC, etc.). Papers presented at the conference will be granted a 20% discount for submisison to the Special Issue.
We are pleased to announce the availability of awards for researchers who plan to attend the ECSOC-26 conference. Applications and nominations will be assessed by the Scientific Committee. Winners will be announced online after the conference.
Best Contribution Award (CHF 500)
The Best Contribution Award is given for the proceedings judged to make the most significant contribution to the conference.
Best Presentation Award (CHF 500)
The Best Presentation Award is given for the posters/slide presentations and oral online presentations/video presentations judged to make the most significant contribution to the conference.
The 26th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry is organized and sponsored by MDPI, an open access publisher based in Switzerland. We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success.
We look forward to receiving your research papers and welcoming you to this edition of the e-conference.
Please contact us if you have any questions ([email protected]).
