We are pleased to announce an International Symposium “From Empirical to Predictive Chemistry” which will be held in Ekaterinburg on 26-30 September 2016. The Symposium is a satellite event of the XX Mendeleev Congress on General and Applied Chemistry , the largest Russian scientific event focusing on fundamental and applied chemical research.

Every 4 to 5 years, Mendeleev Congress  welcomes scientists from all over the globe to the scientific and cultural centers of our country for discussing the groundbreaking scientific and industrial achievements in chemistry. The congress traditionally maintains an interdisciplinary program that highlights new research directions as well as advances in chemical industry and professional education.

The Symposium “From Empirical to Predictive Chemistry” will gather specialists in different fields of computational chemistry including chemoinformatics, molecular modeling, force field molecular mechanics and dynamics, quantum chemistry  to discuss recent trends and achievements in the field. 

The main topics of the Symposium include:

The program will include:

A School  for young scientists devoted to the basics of chemoinformatics will be organized in the framework of the Symposium. The School will take place as the pre-conference event September 26, 2016.
