The all-day meeting entitled:

Rapid development continues in the application of increasingly
sophisticated computer technology, both hardware and software, to the
location, retrieval, registration, manipulation and exploitation of
chemical structure and related data. These developments are helping users
cope with the new demands arising from the continuing growth in the volumes
and complexity of data, especially from such techniques as combinatorial
chemistry and high-throughput screening. All of this is taking place
alongside the continuing growth in the use of Internet/Intranet technology.
Most of the new developments allow the use of a browser interface, and many
of them are accessible via the Internet.
This meeting will review recent developments and trends in the availability
