Open Chemical Sciences Workshops
All scientists working Chemistry need software tools for accessing, handling and storing chemical information, or performing molecular modelling and computational chemistry. There is now a wealth of open-source tools to help in these activities, however many are not as well-known as commercial offerings.
These workshops offer a unique opportunity for attendees to try out a range of open-source software packages for themselves with expert tuition in different aspects of chemistry.
Our aim is to have a once a month workshop, usually the third week of each month on Thursday (or within a day or two).
Registration for these free workshops is now open https://www.eventbrite.com/e/open-source-tools-for-chemistry-workshops-tickets-156431429617. (#OpenChem21)
