Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

Supporting FAIR Exchange of Chemical Data through Standards Development

  • This event has passed.

Joint IUPAC and CODATA workshop

The GO FAIR initiative is intended to encourage and enable accurate data exchange among and across disciplines. FAIR encapsulates the concepts that data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. This workshop will explore how these goals can be accomplished in the context of chemical data, addressing some of the issues present within chemistry, but also in the context of broader interaction with other disciplines. The topics have been chosen to begin a process of standards development and maintenance, tool development and maintenance, and addressing use cases from other domains. Key opportunities include interoperability criteria for spectra using IUPAC standards, prioritizing activities within the GO FAIR ecosystem, creating draft roadmaps with key milestones, and recruiting key leaders for ongoing activity.
