Organised by:

SCI's Data Digitalisation and AI Group

SCI, London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


We are currently living in a digital era where technology has become an integral part of our society. It has transformed numerous industries and is now essential for most organisations. Digital technologies provide opportunities for increased productivity, improved quality, enhanced consistency, greater flexibility, and increased innovation. The rapid advancement of computational power has made digital technologies in chemistry highly compelling for both academia and industry.

Navigating the multitude of options for applying digital techniques to your company can be challenging. SCI is setting up a community where you can learn from those who have already started that journey. The community will be managed by a committee of practitioners and run for the benefit of all.

Join us for this launch event, which will focus on case studies showcasing the successes, challenges, and opportunities that arise from implementing digital solutions in various industry settings. To make the most of in-person meeting opportunities, facilitate discussions, and promote networking, this event will follow a unique format. The agenda will include two keynote talks, one in the morning and another after lunch. In between, there will be a series of speakers summarising their pre-recorded video talks in just 5 minutes. These videos will be made available prior to the meeting. Following these short talks, there will be a discussion panel where participants can delve into the material and explore its implications for the chemicals sector.


Attendance at this event is welcomed from scientists and engineers in industry and academia with experience in developing and implementing digital solutions, as well as researchers and technology directors with an interest in leveraging new technologies to increase productivity in their organisation.

Please note that this event is targeted at delegates who are active in relevant industry sectors and overall places will be limited. Therefore, SCI reserves the right to request additional information about a delegate’s experience prior to confirming their place.
