Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

Big Data is the process of analysing high volume, high velocity data by advanced computational methods that produce actionable knowledge. This approach has thrown up surprising, often counter-intuitive results, in many industries, especially with respect to public shopping habits. Other industries have achieved a clear bottom line benefit out of Big Data, but what can it do for chemistry?

This one-day conference aims to give chemists an idea of what Big Data can do for chemistry and informatics by looking at what people are doing at the frontier of the subject. The conference will be of interest to chemistry directors, agrochemical, process and medicinal chemists, and academics.


Attendees
The conference will be of interest to all levels of chemists in pharmaceutical, agrochemical, process and materials industries. It will also appeal to academics in computational chemistry and informatics.
