Excerpt

At its second meeting in December 1997, the Chemical Sciences Roundtable (CSR) identified the topic of information technology as an issue of increasing importance to all sectors of the chemical enterprise. As we rely increasingly on computers for obtaining, recording, communicating, and publishing the scientific data that enables progress in our discipline, it is correspondingly important that we consider the new and developing ways that this essential technology can be used effectively. At the same time, we must also consider the impact of the evolving technology on all sectors of our discipline and on the ways that these sectors interact.

To provide a forum for exploring this topic, an organizing committee was formed, and a workshop was planned for November 1998. The workshop, "The Impact of Advances in Computing and Communications Technologies on Chemical Science and Technology," brought together research scientists and managers from government, industry, and academia to review and discuss the rapid changes in computer technology that are influencing activities in the chemical sciences.
