The Chemical Information and Computer Applications Group (CICAG) is a Royal Society of Chemistry member-led interest group.
All areas of chemistry, from drug discovery to the development of novel materials, require access to chemical information, chemical data and the methods and technologies to build models from this data to predict and rationalise chemical discovery. Such discoveries would not be of much use without the dissemination of these ideas and community involvement.
CICAG supports users of chemical information, data and computer applications by promoting the latest developments in these areas, as well as tools and techniques for handling chemical information. The group's activities include scientific and educational events on:
• chemical information and data management
• chemistry IT applications and tools
• future, present and historical developments in chemical data and information
