Dear all,

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 

Best Regards,
Greg, Gerhard and Andrea
