AI3SD Network+ Conference 2019

Save the date for our AI3SD Network+ Conference 2019 - 18-19th November 2019.

This will be a 2 day event held at the Winchester Holiday Inn and the Winchester Science Centre. The main conference will be held at the Holiday Inn on both days and will be a mixture of keynote talks, project presentations, flash talks and discussion sessions. The evening activities on the 18th will be held at the Winchester Science Centre, which will involve a free drink, a pre dinner talk by Steve Mould and time to play in the Winchester Science Centre after hours! Followed by a Conference Dinner back at the Holiday Inn.

Prospective attendees of this workshop may also be interested in their IP Booster:
IP Booster is a new specialised professional IP service for public research organisations looking to realise value from their research results. ClearViewIP is joining Meta-Group to help execute the program. We are providing IP expertise to participants and guiding them towards the best intellectual property strategy, at no cost to them as the program is fully supported by the European Commission. Please share this link with any public research organisations as this could be an excellent means of project funding for them.

Events Hosted

Since our last Newsletter AI3SD has hosted five Events. More information on these events can be found at where blog posts and links to reports will be added in due course.

Network+ Town Meeting - 22nd January 2019
AI3SD Hosted a Network+ Town Meeting at the SCI in London. This purpose of this meeting was to give prospective applicants the opportunity to ask questions about our first funding call, and also to find other organisations to collaborate with. There was time set aside for specific networking to find collaborators, and upon request from our attendees we created a Collaborators Page on this website for members who are actively seeking collaborators in research areas linked to AI3SD (both for this funding call and in general). All questions and answers were written up and added to our funding call page as an FAQ.


Molecules, Graphs & AI Workshop - 6th February 2019
On the 6th February AI3SD hosted a Molecules, Graphs & AI Workshop at the picturesque Ageas Bowl in Botley. This was a lively workshop with a strong academic presence from multiple universities, and some industry representatives also. The day was made up of three keynote talks and working group discussions on topics that were elicited from initial open discussions after the presentations.


AI3SD & MDC AI in Drug Discovery & Drug Safety Workshop - 6th March 2019
On the 6th March AI3SD teamed up with the Medicines Discovery catapult to run a workshop at Alderley Park Conference Centre on AI in Drug Discovery & Drug Safety. This was a very well received event, there was a strong industry presence among the attendees and several representatives from different Universities. There were four keynote talks and working group discussions on topics that were elicited from initial open discussions after the presentations.


AI for Materials Discovery Workshop - 19th March 2019
On the 19th March AI3SD hosted an AI for Materials Discovery Workshop at the University of Southampton. This was a very well attended workshop, with over 60 participants attending across the University of Southampton and representatives from many other Universities and Research Institutes, with some industry attendees also. This workshop ran across an afternoon and was made up of five keynote talks which generated a lot of questions and discussions! This was a great workshop for AI3SD as it brought in many new members and raised awareness of the Network+ across different research groups.


AI3SD Advisory Board Meeting #2 - 20th March 2019
On Wednesday 20th March we held our second Advisory Board Meeting. This was a very useful meeting, whereby we updated the Advisory board of the progress of the Network+ and sought their advice regarding the funding applications. The Advisory Board and Network Team discussed the plans for the rest of 2019 and started making plans for 2020 with respect to the activities the Network+ should be focusing on.
