Globally active chemistry and related sciences research will be supported by increased reporting of machine-readable chemical data. Following the conversation started in the previous “What is the chemical? webinars, in this webinar we will focus on some of the existing notations for single molecular entities: InChI, HELM, SMILES, graphical representation, and systematic nomenclature. Our speakers will discuss the user/developer perspective of working with these tools, challenges, expansion to cover chemistry needs, and how they could be complementary to each other to meet chemistry data and cheminformatics needs.
This webinar is organized by the *IUPAC **WorldFAIR-Chemistry project, an EU funded program, aiming to align standards development and implementation with the FAIR data principles. This will facilitate development of guidelines, tools and validation services that support scientists to share and store chemical data in a FAIR manner and support the ability to compile and interpret data across scientific disciplines.
The webinar is supported and hosted by ACS Publications and the American Chemical Society- Division of Chemical Information (CINF).
*IUPAC is the world authority on chemical nomenclature, terminology, and standardized methods of measurement, and is engaging in a concerted effort through collaboration with the broader chemistry and data science communities to translate a range of assets and activities into the digital domain.
**WorldFAIR “Global cooperation on FAIR data policy and practice” is funded by the EC HORIZON-WIDERA-2021-ERA-01-41 Coordination and Support Action under Grant Agreement No. 101058393.
