First announcement poster

Artificial Intelligence is presently experiencing a renaissance in development of new methods and practical applications to ongoing challenges in Chemistry. Following the successes of four annual “Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry” meetings starting in 2018, we are pleased to announce that the Biological & Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) and Chemical Information & Computer Applications Group (CICAG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry are once again organising a conference to present the current efforts in applying these new methods. The meeting will be held over two days and combine aspects of artificial intelligence and deep machine learning methods to applications in chemistry.  The programme will include a mixture of keynote talks, oral presentations, flash presentations, posters and opportunities for open debate and discussion.

Who should attend
This meeting will be of interest to scientists of any level of experience from academia and industry.

The history of Trinity goes back to the reign of Henry VIII and most of its major buildings date from the 16th and 17th centuries. The beauty and size of Trinity’s courts attract visitors from all over the world, but the College is also a thriving, modern community. It is a semi-formal evening and is a great time to come together to enjoy a three-course meal.
