CINF Symposia #243: Call for Papers

CINF Flash: 8-minute lightning talks

Organized by: Rajarshi Guha

For the 2012 Spring meeting in San Diego (March 25 - 29), CINF will be running a session of lightning talks - short, strictly timed talks. The session does not have a specific topic, however, all talks should be related to cheminformatics and chemical information. One of the key features of this session is that we will not be using the traditional ACS abstract submission system, since that system precludes the inclusion of recent work in the program.

So, since we will be accepting abstracts directly, the expectation is that they be about recent work and developments, rather than rehashes of year-old work. In addition, talks should not be verbal versions of posters submitted for this meeting. Given the short time limits we don't expect great detail - but we are expecting compact and informative presentations.

That's the challenge.


If you haven't participated in these types of talks before here are some suggestions:


3:30pm, Sunday, March 25,2012

Submissions run from January 16, 2012 to March 9, 2012


Room 27A, San Diego Convention Center
