Aug 30 – Sept 2: Save the date for Accelerate
From August 30 to September 2, 2022, join us in Toronto for the inaugural Accelerate Conference. Based at the University of Toronto, the Acceleration Consortium (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 30 – September 2, 2022
Toronto (in-person only)
To create a healthy, sustainable world, we need the right materials—and we need them quickly. From August 30 to September 2, 2022, join us in Toronto for the inaugural Accelerate Conference to explore the power of self-driving labs, which combine AI, automation, and advanced computing to accelerate materials and molecular discovery. Connect in-person for talks, hands-on workshops, and parties hosted by changemakers in academia, government, and industry who are shaping this emerging field of accelerated science. Become part of a global community working to realize the age of materials-on-demand: A paradigm shift where we have the technology to rapidly develop the sustainable, inexpensive, and high-performance molecules and materials that we need the most.
Delve into cutting-edge research and new ways of thinking across our three content tracks:
Fundamental discovery and leading-edge tools: Deep and machine learning algorithms for AI-aided experimental design, quantum-based materials simulations and optimized structure-function models, chemical synthesis and materials characterization, chemical ontologies and materials databases, and robotics and control systems
Sustainable materials for a resilient world: Development of solid-state materials, sustainable soft materials, low-carbon structural materials, small molecule drugs, etc.
Designing a translation ecosystem: Leadership in commercialization, training, and education
Ticket sales and registration open (very!) shortly, with a call for abstracts to follow.
