A major theme emerging from the December 2020 NIH Workshop on Ultra Large Chemistry Databases is the essential role of the IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI) in our ability to link and query across large and diverse chemistry data resources. Therefore, we now seek to bring the chemistry community together for an update on the development of the InChI and a discussion of its use in chemistry, biochemistry, and related research domains.
