This year, Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) 2018 Seminar & Workshop will be held on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Bali – Indonesia in relation to 56th Dies Natalis of the Udayana University.  It has been great success in all our past events that had been held in Penang (Malaysia), Bandung (Indonesia), and Langkawi (Malaysia). Universiti Sains Malaysia together with Universitas Udayana and Universitas Padjadjaran proud to organise CADD 2018 with the aim of bringing together and providing a platform for interaction and exchange of research ideas among experts in the area of CADD. Critical aspects and current issues associated with CADD will be shared and initiatives from various perspectives in drug design are needed to synergistically unfold the great potential in CADD.

In view of the potentially huge significance of this field in both pharmaceutical industry and academic, the focus of CADD 2018 is to introduce “The New Era of Digital Approach in Drug Design“.
