Reaxys’ workshops

reaxys

Designed to help you find essential, relevant and actionable chemical data, Reaxys provides the answers to support critical decisions in all chemistry-related research fields, including drug discovery. Reaxys is far more than a chemical database. Features created in consultation with expert chemists and researchers give you deeper insight into the data enabling more rapid and confident decisions, and cost-effective research.

Join our presentations at the booth to learn more about Reaxys and the changes coming in 2014 and to get free gifts for your participation!

Poster in my Pocket

Poster in my pocket icon Are you presenting a poster at ACS Dallas? Why not upload it to the Elsevier Poster in my Pocket app? A FREE mobile app that allows conference attendees and anyone with the app to download scientific posters they find interesting directly onto their mobile and read on the go!

Darren SugrueWhat do you have to do? Once your poster is finalised, submit it to the app via the website, you can then add a specific QR code to your poster before printing it. If attendees spot this and would like to read it on their phone, they just need to download the app and scan the QR code! Watch Video: www.posterinmypocket.com

Darren Sugrue, Senior Marketing Manager in Chemistry who came up with the idea for the App will give a short talk/demo on the app at the booth on Sunday , 7pm to 7:10pm.
