User Conference


The BIOVIA User Conference is postponed

The health and wellbeing of all our customers is of the utmost importance. Faced by the highly uncertain dynamics of COVID-19, BIOVIA 2020 User Conference (originally April) is now postponed. New date TBA.

The BIOVIA User Conference features great presentations from your colleagues, and many of you have emphasized the importance of the conference. We will find a new date, while continue to work on an exceptional meeting, perhaps with even more customer speakers, more workshops/panels and more networking opportunities for you and your colleagues—all the high-value experiences that you have come to expect from a BIOVIA User Conference.

Request to stay informed on the new dates for the BIOVIA User Conference.

Preliminary Agenda topics

Track 1: Laboratory Informatics


Faced with data proliferation on a grand scale, the necessity to improve data accessibility and traceability has become a driving force in today’s lab informatics space.
Discover the many ways in which Pipeline Pilot, a leading, scientifically-enabled data pipelining engine that is accessible from all BIOVIA lab solutions, can help you gain a competitive advantage in today’s data-driven world.
Explore how the unified Digital Lab supports quick technology transfer of automated test methods to quality operations and process parameters to manufacturing facilities
The journey from the Paper Lab to the Digital Lab—Learn how the paperless Digital Lab improves innovation and productivity by reducing unnecessary work, improving data access and facilitating collaborative data sharing

Track 2: Data Science


Learn about the latest approaches to accelerating discovery with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning including customer successes (and failures). Does Deep Learning beat classic methods, or is it more subtle than that?
Demand for greater accuracy in binding affinity prediction has changed the landscape of molecular modeling in recent years. Explore new strategies for accelerating lead identification and optimization.
Advancements in biotechnology have expanded the toolkit of drug modalities. See how software is keeping pace with these innovations.
Move seamlessly from ideation to drug development. Hear about advances in research informatics that bring traditional research workflows together with the latest lab development trends.
We will discuss how the latest techniques in artificial intelligence and data science are accelerating the design, testing, screening and optimization of molecules in silico.
Research teams are actively migrating technologies to the cloud and leveraging enterprise data lakes, scientific data models and master data lifecycle management. Learn how these initiatives can streamline research infrastructure while also reducing total cost of ownership.

Track 3: Materials Innovation through Modeling and Informatics


Discover how predictive, multi-scale modeling allows materials scientists to better understand how battery components and composite materials behave under different conditions, allowing them to accelerate the development of new materials with enhanced performance for particular industrial applications.
Learn how computational methods help to rationalize reaction rates and improve process understanding, while also connecting with Temperature Programmed Desorption methods to help scientists understand and predict catalyst life.
Learn how Artificial Intelligence (and Machine Learning) are driving compound/formula discovery and development and accelerating the exploration of novel materials and formulations.
Explore the power of DoE to reduce material design costs by accelerating the design process, reducing late engineering design changes and decreasing product material and labor complexity.

Track 4: Quality & Manufacturing Intelligence


Manufacturing processes rely on the close monitoring of production volumes, capacity, efficiency, staffing and other factors. Learn about the latest performance and efficiency tools for tracking manufacturing productivity.
Strategic automation can provide many benefits for manufacturers that are willing to invest in stepped-up regulatory compliance. Learn how Robotic Process Automation for OOS/OOT and APR automation with structured documents can help your organization keep pace with today’s evolving regulatory demands.
Explore how advancements in the design-to-manufacturing process are helping companies bring innovative products to market faster.
New technologies for creating medicines are on the rise—gene therapies, RNA, continuous manufacturing to name a few. We will consider these innovations in both science and GMP manufacturing that are helping to speed novel therapies to patients.
