WATOC 2008 Sydney, September 14-19 2008 http://www.watoc2008.com/ Congress Overview The World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists (WATOC) is the major international organisation representing theoretical and computational chemists. The 2008 World Congress of WATOC, namely WATOC 2008, will be held in Sydney, Australia from September 14-19, 2008. Held every 3 years, the WATOC World Congresses represent the major worldwide event that brings together an international network of theoretical and computational chemists. These Congresses are the main international conferences in the bourgeoning field of computational chemistry, and attract strong participation from government, industry and academia. Elebana Falls Cradle Mountain The World Congresses of WATOC have a history of widespread support across the globe the average number of participants attending an international congress is 500-600, typically coming from around 40 countries. The venues of the past Congresses have been: * 1987 Budapest (Hungary) (Inaugural Congress) * 1990 Toronto (Canada) * 1993 Toyohashi (Japan) * 1996 Jerusalem (Israel) * 1999 London (UK) * 2002 Lugano (Switzerland) * 2005 Cape Town (South Africa) The topics covered in WATOC 2008 will range from cutting-edge developments in the fundamentals of computational and theoretical chemistry and physics to the application of the theoretical modelling to such diverse fields as biotechnology and drug design, nanotechnology, condensed-matter physics, and chemical and materials engineering. More specific themes include: 1. THEORETICAL/PHYSICAL: Methodological advances, coupled cluster, DFT, DFTB, CPMD, dynamics, theoretical thermochemistry, polymers, spectroscopy, photochemistry, presentations by software developers; 2. INORGANIC/MATERIALS: Structures, reactions, organometallics, catalysis, clusters, nanoparticles, surfaces, materials, multiscale modeling, industrial, heavy metals, relativistic effects, condensed phase; 3. ORGANIC: Structures, conformations, reactions, dynamics, radicals, ion chemistry, large molecules, condensed phase; 4. BIOLOGICAL: Enzyme catalysis, proteins/peptides, nucleotides, radicals in biology, drug design, bioinformatics, QSAR. Gold Coast Camel Riders The format of WATOC 2008 will include plenary lectures, invited lectures, contributed lectures and poster presentations. In addition, there will be an Exhibition featuring leading companies involved with the relevant computer hardware, software and publishing, as well as other relevant areas. The Congress will bring together leading practitioners in the field of computational chemical, physical and biological sciences. It will create opportunities for the establishment of strategic alliances and collaborations with the very best international scientists working in a broad range of theoretical and computational sciences and their applications. The Congress is designed to facilitate extensive networking, provide examples of leading practice, and deliver practical ways of positioning organizations for the future.NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
