29th Molecular Modelling Workshop 2015     MGMS Logo



This year, the 29th Molecular Modelling Workshop will take place on March, 9th to 11th 2015. The workshop will be hosted by the University Erlangen-Nuremberg. The research group of Professor Tim Clark at the Computer-Chemistry-Center will be responsible for the technical organization. Dr. Bernd Beck from Boehringer Ingelheim in Biberach will be responsible for the scientific organization.

This workshop encourages young scientists - especially graduate students - to present and discuss their research topics. Young scientists at the beginning of their academic careers will be able to meet new colleagues from academia and gain feedback from industrial colleagues.


 The conference fee amounts to 100 Euro (Students: 50 Euro). If you do not disagree, the fee includes the annual membership fee for the MGMS-DS e.V.. (Only payment in cash at the registration desk is possible.)


Contributions are welcome from all areas of molecular modeling -
from the life sciences, computational biology, computational chemistry to materials sciences.





Plenary lectures

Over the last few decades computational chemistry, molecular modelling, and chemoinformatics became more and more an integral part of research in various areas of the chemical industry and at universities. A lot of new tools and new approaches together with a huge increase in computer power facilitates this development. Nevertheless there are still research topics where currently no or only limited support by in-silico methods is possible.


We are very pleased to announce


Prof. Anna Linusson University of Umeå / Sweden
Dr. Karl-Heinz Baringhaus Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH, Frankfurt/Main / Germany


to discuss some of these topics from an academic and an pharmaceutical industry point of view.


Oral and poster presentations

To give also the poster presenters the opportunity to have a look at the other presentations there will be two poster sessions.
Several reasons have prompted us to introduce English as the official workshop language. (Oral presentations may still be given in German. However, please prepare slides in English in this case.) Oral presentations should not exceed 25 minutes (including discussion); posters should be prepared in portrait format (max. 90x140cm).



The deadline for registration and submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentation is
February 13th, 2015.

Only online registration is possible.

Please submit abstracts for oral and poster presentation (one page DIN A4 format) no later than February 13th by e-mail to mmws@mgms-ds.de. Please use this Word template or this OpenDocument template for abstract preparation and send it as PDF (print-ready) to mmws@mgms-ds.de.




As in the past years, there will be two Poster Awards of 100 Euro each and three Lecture Awards for the best talks:

  • Winner: 500 Euro plus a speaker slot option at the Young Modellers Forum in London, organized by the MGMS-UK.
  • 2nd Winner: 200 Euro
  • 3rd Winner: 100 Euro

Only undergraduate and graduate research students qualify for the poster and lecture awards.



Conference location

All talks, coffee breaks, the poster sessions and the buffet dinner will take place at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, Henkestraße 42.



MGMS-DS Travel Bursaries

Participants must organize travelling and accommodation themselves.

Unfortunately the economic situation of the MGMS-DS e.V. does not allow us to provide any travel support for participants this year. We hope that you will be still able to attend our meeting!
