Modeling of Drugs and Ligands (MoDaL)

Summer School

June 22-26, 2020, Torun, Poland

September 14-18 (the most probably), 2020, Torun, Poland


According to the decree of the Rector of the Nicolaus Copernicus University, all conferences and summer schools are cancelled until 30 June 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemic. Therefore, we would like to inform you that the MoDaL summer school is postponed to September 2020. The most probable term of MoDaL school is 16-20 September.
All PhD students who received funding to participate in the MoDaL summer school can take part in it. If someone is unable to attend the school, please contact the PROM coordinator.

Due to the postponement of the BIT20 conference to 2021, the MoDaL summer school will not take place together with this conference. Participants will be provided with other activities related to quantum chemistry and molecular modeling


Soon we will open an additional call for applications for transport and accommodation costs under the PROM programme. Please check the website



According to coronavirus issue please do not pay conference fee. We will inform you about ne dates and deadlines soon.  We will monitor situation with coronavirus pandemia and will send you information about MoDaL summer school.

Goal: increasing (satisfy) a general interest in the approaches for drug and protein modeling applied in the context of computer-aided drug design and developing the basic skills in the field of computational biochemistry for the unassisted simulation planning and realization in the group of PhD students


Participants of the MoDaL Summer School will take part in practical exercises during the first three and a half days. On Thursday afternoon and Friday they will take part in the BIT20 - BioInformatics in Toruń 2020 conference, which will take place for the twentieth time.

PhD students from outside Poland can apply for nine grants for accommodation and travel costs from the PROM programme iled by the Nicolaus Copernicus University. The amount of co-financing ranges from 5840 PLN (about 1360 EUR) to 9840 PLN (about 2300 EUR) (depending on the distance from Toruń). Applications for co-financing can be submitted on the website of PROM programme from 20 January up to 30 June 2020.

All participants are obliged to show a poster concerning their doctoral dissertation during the BIT20 conference.

Polish Bioinformatics Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Bioinformatyczne / PTBI) and Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun welcome you to the 20th annual conference “BioInformatics in Torun – BIT20”. As every year, 2020 conference will be held in Torun - the charming medieval hanseatic town in Poland.

The main topic of the BIT20 will be Bioinformatics+multiomics=better health.  We will focus (but not limit to..) on the development and applications of modern computer based methods in all sorts of -omics, for example, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, foodomics and so on. All these efforts are aimed in improvement of health care.

The conference will start after lunch on June 25 (Thursday) and will end around lunch time on June 27 (Saturday).

Saturday is planned to be devoted mostly to hands-on workshops in bioinformatics.


See you in Toruń! :-)

Dates: June 25, 2020 - June 27, 2020
Location: Toruń
