Upcoming Symposium Applies Big Data methods to Cheminformatics and Retrosynthetic analysis

Reaxys & ACS

Although the fields of cheminformatics and retrosynthetic analysis have been well established for a number of decades, there has recently been a large increase in applying methods from the world of Big Data and Predictive Analytics to the field of chemical reactions.

A symposium, led by Dr. Frederik van den Broek of Elsevier, will be devoted to these topics at the ACS National Meeting in Boston this August.  A series of global experts from industry and academia will discuss the latest developments in the field of chemical reaction analytics, whether by proposing novel synthetic routs, predicting optimal reaction conditions, or potential dead ends in a synthetic route. Also covered will be the topics of normalizing, mapping and joining reaction data from different sources, often essential precursors for reaction analytics.

The Reaction Analytics Symposium will be held in two sessions:

Session 1: Wednesday 22 August 2018, 1:30pm – 4:35pm EDT

Session 2: Thursday 23 August 2018, 08:30am -11:55am EDT

Location: Lewis Room, Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel

Please register for the ACS National Meeting to join this informative symposium.
