August 6–9, 2024: Save the date for the Accelerate conference at UBC
We’re excited to announce that the Acceleration Consortium’s (AC) 2024 Accelerate conference will take place in Vancouver, August 6 – 9, cohosted with our partner, the University of British Columbia. 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 6–9, 2024
Vancouver (in-person only)
We’re excited to announce that our third annual conference is hitting the road! Save the date for the Acceleration Consortium’s 2024 Accelerate conference from August 6 to 9 in Vancouver, cohosted with our partner, the University of British Columbia (UBC). Join us to explore how self-driving labs are revolutionizing materials and molecular discovery through the power of AI, robotics, and advanced computing.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation are changing the way we do science, allowing us to create new, more sustainable materials in a fraction of the usual time. Not only are the tools different, so are the people. To discover new life-saving medications or low-carbon cement, we need a diverse range of minds working together from engineering, chemistry, materials science, computer science, physics, quantum computing, and beyond.
Connect in-person for talks, hands-on workshops, and social events hosted by leaders in academia, government, and industry who are shaping the 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 needed to improve our lives and our planet.
Ticket sales and registration open shortly, along with a call for abstracts.
