Accelerate Conference program now live – and a special discount opportunity!
There’s still time to register for Acceleration Consortium’s (AC) 2023 Accelerate Conference in Toronto, August 22–25! Based at the University of Toronto, the AC is a global community of academia, government, and industry who are accelerating the discovery of new materials and molecules needed for a sustainable future.
August 22–25, 2023
Toronto (in-person only)
AI tools. Accelerated experimentation. Robotics. Energy / Sustainability. Chemical Reactions. Biotech. Electronics. Responsible Discovery. Commercialization. Democratizing science.
Conference talks, panels, and workshops will explore these themes and more. There’s still time to join us for the Acceleration Consortium’s second annual Accelerate Conference in Toronto, August 22–25, 2023 to explore how self-driving labs are revolutionizing materials and molecular discovery through the power of AI, automation, and advanced computing. Connect in-person with experts in academia, government, and industry who are shaping the emerging field of accelerated science. Become part of a global community working to realize a materially better future: A paradigm shift where we have the technology to rapidly develop the sustainable, inexpensive, and high-performance molecules and materials that will improve our lives and our planet.
