Boston ACS Fall 2010
I am just preparing the last few tweaks to my poster before I present it in the ( CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence) (Chemical Information) on Sunday the 22nd of August. This should be an exciting event, there are 8 other posters. The posters range in content from semantic web applications, through to toxicity prediction and virtual screening.
With regards to the rest of the program, unfortunately I can not stay past Monday, however some talks that I would have liked (may not get to see on Sunday) to have seen include:
