QSAR 2018


The Organizing committee is delighted to welcome you to Bled for the 18th International Conference on (Q)SAR in Environmental and Health Sciences (QSAR 2018).

Since 1983 these meetings have been recognized as important international events in the field of Environmental and Health Sciences, bringing together people involved in the development and applications of (Q)SARs to explain the behaviour of chemicals and their impact on the environment and living organisms. The aim of this forum is to contribute to common understanding and to give attractive solutions for explaining the influence of chemical structure on various physical, chemical, or biological properties in relation to environment and health endpoints, as well as to understand the biomolecular aspects of processes in the environment and living organisms. In the Environmental and Health Sciences the (Q)SAR modelling has grown in the range of applications. Starting in the academia it has become an important field in industrial research for supporting the legislative decisions for chemical safety. In recent years, multi-task machine learning has been getting attention for large scale QSAR modelling. The interdisciplinary nature of (Q)SARs requires addressing from various viewpoints, which we hope will be captured in the program of the conference.

With valuable contributions of all participants we are convinced that this conference will be an opportunity for merging and exchanging ideas and experiences; besides fruitful discussions there will be also an opportunity to admire beautiful natural environment, which we want to preserve and is also one of the pivotal goals of (Q)SARs applied in today’s modern society.

With the best wishes for a pleasant stay in Bled, an Alpine Pearl of Slovenia,

Marjana Novič,
on behalf of the local organizing committee.
