Cambridge Cheminformatics Network Meetings

Welcome! Here you can find (brief) information about the Cambridge Cheminformatics Network Meetings, which are free to attend and open to all. We start our meetings in the afternoon at 4pm (UK time) with a series of short scientific talks, either on Zoom (for the time being), or when the situation will permit again, in person. If the latter, we will continue the evening with a mixer at the local pub.

Meetings from September 2020 onwards (which have been held online and where the presenters agreed to the recording) are available via the YouTube cheminformatics channel on demand.


Next Meeting: 30 November 2022, 3.30-5pm UK / 4.30-6pm CET:
Cross-Site Cambridge/Oxford/Berlin Digital Drug Discovery Meeting!

In Person (at all sites) & Virtual (Zoom) - Free & open to all
