this year's RDKit User Group Meeting will take place from 20-22 September in
Berlin, Germany and is being co-hosted by Andrea Volkamer (Charité -
Universitätsmedizin Berlin) and Gerhard Wolber (Freie Universität Berlin).
Registration for the RDKit UGM is free:
We've gotten positive feedback about what has become the standard format for
the UGM, so we plan to stick with that for this year:
Days 1 and 2: Talks, lightning talks, roundtable(s), discussion, and
talktorials. For those who haven’t attended before, talktorials are somewhere
between a talk and a tutorial, they cover something interesting done with the
RDKit and include the code used to do the work. During the presentation you'll
give an overview of what you did and also show the pieces of the code that are
central to the work. The idea is to mix the science up with the tutorial
Day 3 will be a hackathon: those who choose to stay will spend an intense day
working in small groups to produce useful artifacts: new bits of code, KNIME
nodes, KNIME workflows, tutorials, documentation, IPython notebooks, etc. We
will once again try to structure this a bit by collecting a bunch of ideas for
things to work on in advance. Last year we also did extended tutorials on Day 3
if there are volunteers to do tutorials and people interested in attending
them, we'll repeat that this year as well.
There will also be, of course, social activities.
A more detailed announcement with additional information about place, hotels
and logistics will follow soon.
We are looking for people who are willing to do presentations, talktorials or
posters on the first two days. If you're interested in contributing, please
send us an email.
Lighting talks don't need to be arranged too far in advance; we will start
collecting the list of people interested in doing those shortly before the
