Please join us in Bryn Mawr on Tuesday 17 October 2006 to discuss the emerging roles of Knowledge Management and Electronic Laboratory Notebook solutions in managing multidisciplinary research activities, innovation and collaboration. The Open Event will take place alongside our InnovationWell and eCheminfo Autumn InterAction Meetings.
Attendance at the Open Event & Knowledge Café involves no registration fee. However seated places are limited and will be restricted to a confirmed guest list. Please send an RSVP with your name and organisation via email to innovationwell [at] douglasconnect.com
Virtual proceedings from the Open Seminars in Bryn Mawr and the recent Open Event in Oxford, UK will also be made available later this Autumn to network members through the InnovationWell website.

17.30 Open Seminars & Panel Discussion
Listen and discuss with a panel of experts their experiences in applying solutions to solve knowledge management in R&D problems.
17.30 Industry Perspectives on the Knowledge Management & Research Informatics Requirements for Supporting Drug Discovery & Development
Dennis Underwood, CEO, Praxeon and Peter Gates, Johnson & Johnson PR&D
Dennis Underwood will discuss the challenges of the complexity of data-types and problems associated with building models of understanding disease therapies that are based on inherently complex and variable biological systems. Peter Gates will discuss strategies for the automation of research activities in the mining of data, the planning and execution of experiments, and the reduction of observations to data.
18.00 Knowledge Management Perspectives on Support Systems for Research and Development
Michael Liebman, Director of the Windber Research Institute and Barry Hardy, Manager, InnovationWell Community of Practice
Michael Liebman will provide an overview of knowledge management approaches for enabling productivity and successful outcomes in clinical and translational research. Barry Hardy will discuss knowledge assessment approaches aimed at the continuous improvement of the innovation and performance of the R&D organisation and its support ELN systems.
18.30 Solutions Perspectives to Support Collaborative Multidisciplinary R&D
Jeff Spitzner, President & Chief Science Officer, Rescentris and John Bobo, Field Applications Scientist, Symyx
Jeff Spitzner will discuss the design and implementation of collaboration frameworks for the management of scientific research, and the role of semantic web technologies in record-keeping solutions that support the integrated R&D organization. John Bobo will discuss how configurations, integrations, and business rules help to make the scientist's interaction with an ELN into a seamless part of their everyday work.
19.00 Panel Discussion with Audience
The speakers and audience will discuss Electronic Laboratory Notebooks and their role in managing and supporting R&D in today’s complex multidisciplinary scientific environment.
19.30 Knowledge Café on Knowledge Management in R&D
Discuss and share your experiences with your peers on knowledge management challenges and solutions for supporting research and development activities. In this part of the program participants will spend time in small groups discussing their own experiences, needs and interests. Rotation of participants between different groups and tables will take place periodically.
Enjoy refreshments and network further with your peers.
Please also NOTE: The Forum on Comparing Virtual Screening Methods recently posted on by John Irwin (UCSF) and I at http://barryhardy.blogs.com/cheminfostream/2006/10/could_we_take_a.html will also take place 16.00 - 17.30 at this event.
