We are pleased to invite you to our sixth “Lausanne Workshop on Chemical Information”. The goal of this workshop is to put together people interested in Chemical Information in order to share ideas and future perspectives in this field. We hope that leaving this workshop everybody will have learn something and will be in hurry to implement or develop new ideas that hopefully will be presented in the future.

Organizing comittee :

  • Peter Ertl (Novartis, Basel)
  • Thomas Mueller (Novartis, Basel)
  • Thomas Sander (Actelion, Basel)
  • Christian Rufener (Actelion, Basel)
  • Igor Tetko (Institute for Bioinformatics, Germany)
  • Reiner Dieden (Belgium)
  • Damiano Banfi (EPFL, Lausanne)
  • Luc Patiny (EPFL, Lausanne)
