With the recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) techniques, we have seen a rise in the application of ML in various fields of science. But, on the other hand, many chemists are still wondering if using this powerful ML in a black box manner will help their research or not. In this workshop, we aim to shed some light on this.
In the morning, we will open with Prof. William Green of MIT giving a talk on “Quantitative Machine Learning for Chemical Sciences”. Then, we will have Prof. Yi-Pei Li (NTU) and Tzuhsiung Yang (NTHU) give us an idea of the basic background behind ML and what it can and can not do. In addition, we will have hands-on use of ML techniques for material property prediction, generating molecular structure for desired property, and organic chemistry predictive retrosynthesis. Lastly, we will have some lab members demo and share their experience using ML for their research.
We invite interested PIs to please join us to learn more about ML techniques and their possible application in chemical problems. Since we will have hands-on, please bring your laptop computers, and 1 lab member can also join you at the workshop.
It is our great pleasure to inform you that the 17th International Conference on Squeezed States and Uncertainty Relations (ICSSUR 2023) will take place on 26-30 June 2023 in Taipei, Taiwan.
The event will be in-person format with regular and poster sessions. As you may know ICSSUR has a long history back to 1991, covering a wide range of topics from quantum optics to quantum atom optics and quantum information.
This time, the venue of this 5-day event is National Taiwan University (NTU)campus near the Gongguan MRT station, in Taipei, and we also plan a half-day excursion to our National Palace Museum with the banquet there (Silks Palace).
We are happy to announce that the 6th International Conference on Molecular Simulation (ICMS 2023) will be held from October 6th to 9th 2023 in the venues of the National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan.
Molecular simulations have become an essential tool in Physics, Chemistry, Biological/Material Sciences, and Engineering over the last few decades. The International Conference on Molecular Simulations (ICMS) was initiated by the Molecular Simulation Society of Japan in 1994 to promote molecular simulations as a platform for inter-disciplinary research. The first three meetings were held in 1994, 2004, and 2013 in Fukui, Tsukuba, and Kobe, respectively. After the 4th and 5th ICMS in Shanghai 2016 and Jeju 2019 with hundreds of participants from more than 20 countries, the 6th ICMS was initially scheduled to take place in Taipei in 2022. However, the meeting has so far been hindered due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, with the world recovering from COVID-19 and Taiwan lifting its travel restrictions, we hope that the ICMS 2023 will not only provide a platform for scientists and engineers to meet in person again and to share state-of-the-art development in molecular simulations. We also hope it will facilitate international collaborations and promote scientific and technological advances through molecular simulations.
