Aspects covered by this conference
This symposium addresses the interfaces between the laboratory and the new infrastructures currently being set up. In chemistry, biochemistry and neighbouring areas, funding agencies and national and supranational bodies are mandating the sharing and depositing of data.
The digitization of chemistry is picking up speed as new technologies are diffusing into the lab allowing devices to be interconnected, data automatically recorded, and experiments to be automated. The impact of open science on science research will be critically reviewed and the development of highly interconnected, collaborative research in data driven laboratories of the future will be discussed.
