Once again the RSC will be attending the American Chemical Society’s Fall meeting which will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, August 19-23, 2012, where the RSC stand will be located at booth 701.
Several members of the ChemSpider team will be attending the conference; both to give presentations and also to chat/answer questions on the booth. If you are attending the conference please drop by and say Hello and ask any questions that you have (you might even be able to get a free coffee – available on a first-come first served basis from 11 am on both Monday and Tuesday). We will also be running an exciting ChemSpider competition to coincide with the conference. You can get details from our Booth #701, or by checking out the ChemSpider blog.
There will be two key ChemSpider events in Philadelphia:
A special On-Stand demo – Monday 20 August, 11 am, Booth 701
“ChemSpider and You: A workshop exploring how ChemSpider can help you find chemical information” – A 2 h workshop for both newcomers to ChemSpider and experienced searchers alike. 10am-12pm Tuesday 21 August, Exhibit Halls A-B, Workshop Room 2 (You can register for the workshop via the conference website – we will try and accommodate anyone who just turns up on the day.)
In addition members of the ChemSpider team are giving a number of talks, including some early glimpses of exciting new tools that we are working on. The presentations are listed below – for more details including the abstracts for each of the talks see the Technical program.
