Fragment events in 2019 and 2020

We're already halfway through 2019, but there are still some excellent upcoming events, and 2020 is taking shape, so start planning your calendar!

2019
September 1-4: BrazMedChem2019 will be held in the Brazilian holiday destination of Pirinopolis, and will include a section on FBLD.

September 17-19: CHI's Seventeenth Annual Discovery on Target takes place in Boston. Multiple biological targets are covered, and there are also more general talks on a variety of topics of interest to readers, including two sessions on fragments. You can read my impressions of last year's event here.

November 12-15: FBDD Down Under 2019 will take place in beautiful Melbourne. This is the third major FBDD event in Australia, and given the success of the first, I expect it to be excellent.

November 13-15: Although not exclusively fragment-focused, the Seventh NovAliX Conference on Biophysics in Drug Discovery will have several relevant talks, and will be held in the lovely city of Kyoto. You can read my impressions of the 2018 Boston event here, the 2017 Strasbourg event here, and Teddy's impressions of the 2013 event herehere, and here.
