Virtual workshop on International Chemical Identifiers (InChI)

March 22-24, 8am-Noon Pacific Time, Free, Registration required

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.  Speakers will report on developments in the InChI field, usage of InChI in their organization, as well as challenges and areas not yet covered by InChI.  The virtual workshop is scheduled for three half-days and will include short talks and panel discussions.

ORCID interoperability

ORCID : Important tool for your professional career

October 21, 2020

Having an ORCID ID enables you to distinguish yourself from others who may have the same name.  An ORCID ID is a persistent identifier that supports your efforts when you change positions, institutions, or even your hame.  Your ORCID record enables you to enter information once for reuse multiple times.  Because ORCID.org is a non-profit organization, your information is not sold.  There is no cost for using ORCID and you control the visibility of your ORCID record.  Automatic updates for your new publications can be sent to your ORCID record, making it easier to keep your information current.
