Cambridge Cheminformatics Newsletter, 14 October 2020

Dear All,

I would like to circulate some recent Cheminformatics (and related) news to everyone as follows:

The dates for our Cambridge Cheminformatics Meetings next year have now been set – for 2021 we will have four meetings online (since attendance was excellent and international this way), with two additional meetings in person in Cambridge. The dates are as follows:

10 February 2021, 4pm (UK time), via Zoom
2 June 2021, 4pm (UK time), via Zoom
1 September 2021, 4pm (UK time), via Zoom
24 November 2021, 4pm (UK time), via Zoom

We will also have two meetings physically in Cambridge (the situation permitting) on the following dates (location TBC):

21 April 2021
13 October 2021

All future dates and details for registration are as usual listed on our website: http://c-inf.net/.

In particular, also the recording of the last meeting on 2 September meeting is online, and registration for the meeting on 25 November is now open (for the programme details also see below): http://www.drugdiscovery.net/ct5q.
