Automated chemistry continues to receive increasing attention as a wide-ranging field with applications across academic and industrial research programmes. As this field develops through the availability of ever more advanced solid and liquid handling robotics, automated flow chemistry, reaction monitoring and purification, it continues to enable more complex experimentation and discoveries. When the practical ability to perform automated handling and analytical techniques is combined with algorithms to perform data analysis and experiment design, this technique becomes all the more powerful.

This symposium looks to bring together leading academic and industrial researchers from across the field – from high-throughput experimentation to the development of new algorithms. Please join us for an exciting day of automated intelligent chemistry!


This meeting is relevant to delegates from both industry and academics/students at all levels, who are interested in developing or using automation within organic and medicinal chemistry:

  • Automation chemists, high-throughput experimentation chemists.
  • Chemists in pharmaceutical/agrochemical industries, who either use automation themselves, or work alongside those that do.
  • Relevant to PhD students and postdocs who are either currently using automation in their work, would like to use it in the future, or intend on moving into the pharmaceutical/agrochemical industries.
  • Chemists interested in artificial intelligence and cheminformatics and its application to synthesis.

Confirmed Speakers
    • Richard Bourne, University of Leeds
