Virtual workshop on International Chemical Identifiers (InChI)

March 2, 2021
by Grace Baysinger

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.
