On behalf of the Winter 2012 Chemical Information Bulletin edotor:
"The new issue (Volume 64, Number 4: Winter 2012) of the Chemical Information Bulletin is available at the CINF website at: http://bulletin.acscinf.org/ The issue features reports from the 2012 Fall ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.

CINF members who were fortunate enough to attend the Wednesday afternoon symposium in San Diego on research evaluation heard several great presentations. For those who were not able to attend, I'm submitting a symposium summary article for the next issue of the Chemical Information Bulletin, so please look out for it. Some of the presentations were recorded and will be made available by ACS. Several speakers also gave permission for their slides to be made available, so I'm hoping to add links from the CINF website to content from the sympsosium.
I new in the group. I am member of ACS since 2010. I have a PhD in Chemistry and a Certificate in Applied Informatics. I am presently a postdoc and a lead developer for a molecular dynamics project at UC Davis. The project is shared with 3 other universities.
