MINI-TRACK: Pharmacoinformatics for the improvement of pharmaceutical
services and drug discovery


The advances of information systems and technologies and web-based
information sharing have raised expectations of healthcare organizations
with regards to the use of such systems for the improvement of healthcare
services. On the other hand, advances in information processing and
representation have also raised the prospects of pharmaceutical companies
to use advanced Pharmacoinformatics for protein engineering necessary for
the design of new drug entities, medicinal chemistry and molecular analysis
of therapeutics in pursuit of maximizing drug efficacy and  minimizing
systemic toxicity and adverse events. Such developments suggest that
integrated approaches for the management of pharmacy information and
pharmacoinformatics applications are needed in order to enable all
stakeholders to benefit from the rapidly expanding knowledge of
pharmaceutical care services and potential drug and therapeutic targets.
The workshop on Pharmaco-Informatics for Drug Discovery aims to provide a
forum to share comprehensive techniques and approaches for the
establishment of efficient and intelligent pharmacoinformatics for the
improvement of pharmaceutical care services and drug discovery.


Research topics may include but are not limited to:

·         Pharmacoinformatics: methodological and conceptualization

·         The role of Pharmacoinformatics in improving pharmaceutical

·         Intelligent pharmacoinformatics.

·         Crowd sourcing data for Pharmacoinformatics from social networks.

·         Data integration tools and analytical systems for
Pharmacoinformatics data.

·         Advanced Pharmacoinformatics applications for the improvement of
Pharmacovigilance processes.

·         Pharmacoinformatics for drug discovery.

·         Generation of integrated pharmacoinformatics databases.

·         Biomedical text mining for drug discovery pipeline.

·         Pharmacoinformatics-based Rational design of drug combination.

·         Pattern recognition and classification in translational research.

·         Protein-protein interaction network analysis for disease.
