Breakout Tracks

The conference will feature 3 parallel breakout tracks including the following:

Discovery Research Track

Modern scientific product development is shifting to focus on harmonizing models, data, experiments, and people across an organization’s distributed research network. Adopting and accelerating agile discovery means developing a comprehensive understanding of a product from the molecule to manufacturing and in silico techniques can help support this understanding. Join industry leaders and experts from BIOVIA as they explore how atomistic modeling and simulation, advanced analytics and machine learning, and cloud-enabled collaborative workspaces support the next generation of R&D and innovation.

Products Featured in this track include: Pipeline Pilot, Discovery Studio, Materials Studio, ScienceCloud, QSAR Workbench, Assay, Insight, Registration & Insight

Laboratory and Process Optimization

Dassault Systèmes BIOVIA's Laboratory Informatics solutions are leveraged across science-based industries and used by almost 200,000 users worldwide. Learn about best practices from your peers, BIOVIA experts and partners, get an overview of upcoming releases , experience new capabilities for research, development and quality control labs and discuss new ideas with colleagues and thought leaders. Learn how to maximize your current investment and how BIOVIA's Laboratory Informatics capabilities can help to improve collaboration, innovation, efficiency and quality of your laboratory work.

Products Featured in this track include: BIOVIA Workbook, BIOVIA Notebook, BIOVIA LES, BIOVIA LIMS, BIOVIA CISPro, BIOVIA Compose, BIOVIA Capture, and BIOVIA Review

Data Science and IT

Led by BIOVIA technical experts, Tech sessions at this year’s event will cover a range of topics including IT best practices, security, deployments, integration, cloud and hybrid cloud environments, IT upgrades and roadmaps. Customers will be talking about why data are really an asset for their respective company. They will also explain how they can maximize value of their data by applying machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques on it. Interactive sessions are designed to provide you with better insight into the technical aspects of BIOVIA solutions and gain critical knowledge about how to manage, support, integrate and deploy these solutions into your IT environments. This session is designed for customers who have IT responsibilities and titles of, but not limited to, Data Scientists, Software or Web Developers, Analysts, or Architects

Products covered in this track: Pipeline Pilot, ScienceCloud, Workbook, Notebook, Unified Lab Management
