Visit us at SEPAWA® CONGRESS 2021.
COVID-19 remains a global challenge in 2021. Mutations, rising incidences, travel restrictions, possibly restrictions on participants and concern for everyone’s health do not allow for safe planning. Due to the uncertainties and unpredictable future developments, the board of SEPAWA® e.V. has decided to hold the SEPAWA® CONGRESS 2021 exclusively on a virtual basis.
Visit us at ILMAC 2021 – Symposium „Artificial Intelligence and Digitalization“.
Since 1959, ILMAC has been the sole Swiss industry fair for chemicals and life sciences that depicts all the industrial applications in process and laboratory technology. As a user-oriented trade fair, ILMAC is geared to experts in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, biotechnology, food, drinks, cosmetics and others (see illustration below). Despite this wide range of sectors, ILMAC is still of particularly manageable proportions (it can be visited in a single day), is close to hand (staged in the midst of the pharmaceutical and chemical industries) and depicts the Swiss market in its entirety.
Developing products of any kind often happens in iterative cycles. For example, small molecule drugs emerge from numerous cycles of Lead Optimization, looping many times through molecule design, synthesis, and bio-activity measurements. Automating this cycle could significantly accelerate this cycle, hence there is an increasing drive to build platforms to this end.
At a 2019 workshop on Closed-Loop Make-Test-Design Platforms for Drug Discovery and Lead Optimization, the task to efficiently feed such platforms with chemical building blocks was identified as a challenge. The principles of such Closed-Loop platforms will be introduced, and the sample management specific questions discussed.
Registration opens soon.
