Structure representation, including the electronic storage of structures and reactions to enable effective information searching, retrieval and display, has become more challenging as the number, diversity and complexity of structures which can be elucidated has increased over time.  This meeting will explore current and future challenges and possible solutions to overcome them. In addition, subject matter experts will anticipate how developments in these areas will bring opportunities and benefits to research and innovation in the future.

Use of structure representation standards and metadata to exploit new opportunities and examine how chemists and data scientists can work together to ensure capture of information from the outset, e.g. when structures are first published in the literature or proprietary databases, will also be examined.
