February 26, 2019
Hilton Garden Inn San Francisco Airport North, South San Francisco, CA, USA

9:30 AM–3:00 PM PST

Please join us in South San Francisco for our California Scientific Software Symposium.

This year's theme is empowering data-driven decisions with digital molecular characterization and assembled, searchable analytical data. The symposium will focus on best practices in analytical knowledge generation and management. This will include applications in machine learning, enablement of intelligent action through digitization and data assembly, and data standardization and the Allotrope Foundation, as well as managing data from external sources.
