Subject: 22.08.05 Virtual Winter School on Computational Chemistry - Focus on Africa Edition
Virtual Winter School on Computational Chemistry - Focus on Africa Edition

In association with VCCA-2022 the organizing committee of the Virtual Winter
School on Computational Chemistry will be holding a one-day satellite
symposium on Friday August 5. This one-day event will be hosted in the
VWSCC's space, kindly sponsored by Gather, and will be a condensed
version of our annual VWSCC event, focusing on showcasing African science to
the rest of the world. Since 2015 through VWSCC we have endeavored to bring
our speakers to the rest of the world virtually. In this event we hope the
global community will come to see what is happening in Africa. The day will
be a mixture of invited talks, poster presentations and panel discussions on
topics such as getting jobs, forming collaborations, computing resources,

# The format of the day (in CEST/CAT) will be:
* 09:00 - 09:15	Welcome by Mark Casida
* 09:15 - 09:45	Anne Etindele "A density functional theory practical
   modeling of singlet oxygen molecule with multiplets sum method" 
* 09:45 - 10:15	Kamel Alimi
* 10:15 - 10:45	Lucy Kiriuri "Hydrophobic π-π
   stacking interactions and hydrogen bonds drive self-aggregation of luteolin
   in water"
* 10:45 - 11:15	TBA
* 11:15 - 11:45	Samar Mahmoud
* 11:45 - 14:00	Break
* 14:00 - 14.45	Panel discussion on Computational Resources with Dominique
    Buyens, Nithaya Chetty, Krishna Govender, Winfred Mulwa
* 14:45 - 15.30	Panel discussion on Human Dimensions with Edet Archbong,
   Collins Edet, Samar Mahmoud
* 15:30 - 17:00	Break
* 17:00 - 18:30	Single Figure Presentations
* 18:30 - 18:40	Closing

SFPs (single figure presentations) submissions are particularly encouraged
from researchers working at African institutions, especially students. You
will be given the opportunity to give a flash presentation of your work in
our virtual poster room and mingle with other attendees. There will be prizes
of speaking slots at the next edition of the Virtual Winter School.

Everyone is welcome to participate, and we hope to see representatives from
as many countries as possible.
