At this year's event, Accelrys will be conducting its first Usability Lab, where customers can walk through typical workflows on Accelrys solutions currently in development. Held during the welcome reception on Monday night May 7th, customers are welcome to spend 10 to 15 minutes at designed stations, putting their hands on solutions currently in development, and providing feedback directly to our software developers and product managers. Accelrys is conducting the usability lab to collect information from users and administrators focusing on usability and workflows, and validating scenarios. The solutions available in the usability lab include Pipeline Pilot, Symyx Notebook by Accelrys, Next Generation Cheminformatics, and Discovery Studio. Customers interested in participating in the Usability Lab should email Byron Konold and you will be added to the Lab participants list.
