RSC CICAG Membership
Royal Society of Chemistry members will be getting their annual subscription details around now. Can I remind people that your membership entitles you to membership of up to THREE Interest Groups.
I'd urge you to make use of them, in particular:-
86 Chemical Information and Computer Applications Group
Currently it seems Members who wish to change/join interest groups and divisions currently need to request this via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (01223 432141).
The Chemical Information and Computer Applications Group (CICAG) is one of the RSC’s many member-led Interest Groups, which exist to benefit RSC members and the wider chemical science community, and to meet the requirements of the RSC’s strategy and charter.
Scope and Aims
The storage, retrieval, analysis and preservation of chemical information and data are of critical importance for research, development and education in the chemical sciences. All chemists, and everybody else who works with chemical substances, need tools and techniques for handling chemical information.
CICAG works to:
- Support users of chemical information, data and computer applications and advance excellence in the chemical sciences
- Inform RSC members and others of the latest developments in these rapidly evolving areas
- Promote the wider recognition of excellence in chemical information and computer applications at this level.
CICAG also organises a number of meetings each year at which members get reduced rates. Details of previous meetings are here.
