Welcome from the Chairs

Dear colleagues worldwide, we are glad to invite you to MOL2NET-04, International Conference on Multidisciplinary Sciences, ISSN: 2624-5078, ISBN: 978-3-03842-820-6, MDPI SciForum, Basel, Switzerland, 2018. MOL2NET is a year-round conference series with multiple associated workshops worldwide running and open to submissions almost all the year, please read [Workshops/Sections Schedule]. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, Chemistry (All areas), Mathematics (Applied), Physics (Applied), Materials Science, Nanotechnology, Biology and Life Sciences (All areas), Medicine, Biomedical Engineering, Education, along with Computer Sciences, Data Analysis, Statistics, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, and Complex Networks Sciences. We suggest you to download the [Template File] to write your communication and to read carefully the [Instructions to authors] about publication model, copyright, authors responsibilities, etc.

Headquarters and Supporters

MOL2NET runs both in person (host universities of associated workshops) and online at platform SciForum maintained by the editorial MDPI, Basel, Switzerland. The Scientific Headquarters (HQs) of this conference series are in the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Biscay. However, the idea of this multidisciplinary conference emerged from the melting pot formed as the result of multiple collaborations of professors from many centers worldwide. Locally, the founders and strongest supporters of the conference are professors endowed by IKERBASQUE, Basque Foundation for Sciences, professors from the two departments Department of Organic Chemistry I and Department of Organic Chemistry II of the University of Basque Country (UPV/EHU), and professors from the Department of Computer Sciences of the University of Coruña (UDC).

Internationally, professors from Dept of Biological Chemistry & Molecular Pharmacology (BCMP), Harvard Medical School, USA; the Center for the Study of Biological Complexity of the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), USA; the Natural Resources Research Institute, of the University of Minnesota, USA; CNRS-Université Paris-Sud, Paris, France, Universität Rostock, Germany, and other institutions are also founders and/or supporters of this conference, please see full committees lists [Honor Committee] [Co-Chairs Committee] [Scientific Committee (Abroad)] [Scientific Committee (Local)] and [MOL2NET-IKERBASQUE Staff].

Conference Lemma

The acronym MOL2NET summarizes the running title of this conference: FROM MOLECULES TO NETWORKS. This lemma is inspired by the possibility of spreading the knowledge about multiple topics by promoting multidisciplinary collaborations in science with conferences including topics ranging from quantum world to large social networks. In this sense, the spirit of this conference is in consonance with the lemma EMAN TA ZABAL ZAZU (Give and extend knowledge). This anthem from the 19th century is written in Basque language (Euskera) and is used now a days as the official motto of the University of Basque Country (UPV/EHU).

Workshops/Sections Schedule

General Schedule: MOL2NET International Conference Series on Multidisciplinary Sciences, MDPI Sciforum, Basel, Switzerland has online sections (3) and workshops (>10) associated. The conference usually runs online at the online platform SciForum maintained by the editorial MDPI, Basel, Switzerland. However, the platform is open on a year-round basis almost all the days of the year in course. We have this modality for practical reasons; e.g., accommodation of many workshops in different dates along the year, flexible reception of communications, etc.

Submission and Publication of communications: As we mentioned before, in the practice, the online sections (1-3) open at the beginning of the year in course and continue open all the year for submissions of communications. However, the associated workshops open in different dates along the year (see specific workshop pages). Submission of papers to all sections/workshops is open until the last days of the year in course or the first days of the following. The publication of communications is continuous all the year upon acceptance.

Schedule for Online participation: After publication of papers is closed we open the online platform for online participation. The authors will be able to post online comments and/or answers to comments in this workshop/section and also in the other general sections and/or >10 international workshops of the MOL2NET conference (many of them also run both online and in person). The participants are entitled to receive participation certificates for MOL2NET conference and all the workshops they participate upon request to the respective chairpersons. See committees of MOL2NET and each workshop.

Schedule for in person participation: Many of the workshops associated to MOL2NET are going to be held also in person (face-to-face) in different universities of USA, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Chile, etc. This in person workshops have specific schedules in parallel to their online versions. Please, go to the homepages of these workshops and/or contact their chairpersons for further details.

Notes for participants: MOL2NET conference runs both online (general sections) and/or in person (associated workshops). No physical presence is needed for online participation saving traveling costs. We accept experimental works, theoretical works, or experimental-theoretic works in the areas mentioned. Proceedings will be Published Online, Open Access, and Totally Free of Charges (no cost). For details about in person (face-to-face) participation on associated workshops contact the respective members of the local committees.

Types of communications

Before to submit your communication recommend to download and use the [Template File] to write your communication; we strongly recommend you to read carefully the following information about publication model, copyright, authors responsibilities, etc Firstly, be aware that the works published here belongs to two main modalities preliminary communications or comments on previous works.

Preprints. These are short communications of unpublished results but they are not post-print journal papers. In this sense, committee and/or external reviewers check only scope and apparent scientific soundness. They have the same editorial process than for an online Preprint service. Therefore, all works receive doi number and are indexed in databases (GoogleScholar, Publons, etc.).The works may receive also comments from registered participants (public post-publication review). The authors are encouraged to submit their works to a peer-reviewed scientific journals of MDPI or other editorials during or after finalization of the conference, as per SciForum copyright rules.

Research Highlights. These short communications are comments on already published papers. They are short notes to comment about the more interesting points, highlights, etc. of works previously published by the authors or other groups. In this case, committee and/or external reviewers check also only scope and apparent scientific soundness. The works may receive also comments from registered participants (public post-publication review).

Authors liability. In any case, it is the responsibility of the author only, to ensure the veracity of the contents, checking similarity to other works, and carry out a proper citation of previous works. The committee is not responsible of this previous aspects in this publishing modality. In this sense, we strongly recommend the authors to use online text-similarity checking services to avoid any form of plagiarism or copyright violation. The authors may be requested to modify the communication (re-write their texts) in the case that high similarity is detected and reported to the committee. In these cases, the manuscript could be put on standby or withdrawn temporarily until the authors re-submit the proper version. The authors are also allowed to submit short reviews, comments, letters, or discussions of papers already published if they guarantee sufficient difference to previous public contents.
