Following on from my earlier blog post, I recently attended the 12th ICCS in Noordwijkerhout, the Netherlands. This was a really great conference, this time organised by Gerard van Westen and colleagues. If you're interested in attending next time, unfortunately you'll have to wait another 3 years...
The conference started with the awarding of the CSA Trust Mike Lynch Award to Dr Greg Landrum, for his work on RDKit and the community around it. As a CSA Trustee, I had the pleasure of presenting this along with fellow trustee Wendy Warr.
But it wasn't all presenting awards. There was also the cruise on the IJsselmeer to be done, as ably illustrated by Peter Ertl on the right.
