Dear colleagues and fellow scientists,
This year we will host the 11th Triennial Congress of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists from August 27 to September 1, 2017 in Munich, Germany. WATOC is the largest theoretical and computational conference worldwide and we expect about 1500 participants from all over the world. There will be more than 200 invited lectures, many contributed talks and posters covering a wide variety of cutting edge research topics ranging from method developments to applications, all pushing the limits of modern theoretical and computational chemistry, biochemistry, nanotechnology, and materials sciences.
Both the International Advisory Committee and the Local Scientific Committee have been set up and plenary and invited speakers will soon be selected.
The WATOC2017 will be held in the city center of Munich with both the plenary and parallel sessions under one roof. Munich is located centrally in Europe with the second largest airport (MUC) in Germany offering many direct international and national flights. At the same time, Munich offers safe and easy public transportation facilities.
Besides great science, Munich and its surroundings offer fascinating possibilities for both cultural and outdoor activities.
We hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating the WATOC2017 in Munich - please do subscribe early to the mailing list so that we can keep you posted.
We look forward to seeing you in Munich 2017!
On behalf of the Local Scientific Committee,
Chair of Theoretical Chemistry
Department of Chemistry, University of Munich (LMU)
