About Symposium

XXVIII Symposium on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery continues traditions of the Symposia started in 1995 at the initiative of the Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Archakov. Alexander Archakov and Vladimir Poroikov co-chaired the first one, held in the framework of the Second Russian National Congress “Man and Drugs” (Moscow, 12-15 April 1995). The subsequent Symposia were being organized annually by the Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Nikolai Zefirov and Professor Vladimir Poroikov. Since 2018 Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vladimir Poroikov and Professor Roman Efremov are the Symposium’s Co-Chairs.


In 2021, because of the COVID-2019 pandemic, the XXVII Symposium on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery was held online using the cloud video conferencing platform. Its program, presentations, videos, and other materials are available on the Symposium’s website.


Considering the urgent need for international cooperation to overcome the emerging challenges, we have decided to carry out the XXVIII Symposium as an International event, where all lectures, oral talks, and brief communications will be presented in English.


The Young Scientists’ Contest will be conducted as part of the Symposium, and Diplomas will award the winners.


We look forward to seeing you at the XXVIII Symposium on Bioinformatics and Computer-Aided Drug Discovery!
