Virtual Conference in Computational Chemistry VCCC-2014 (1st call)

So many things have happened since I last updated this blog but I will come to write on them when appropriate. Right now I’d like to share an invitation by Prof. Ponnadurai Ramasami from the University of Mauritius to the upcoming Virtual Conference on Computational Chemistry from the 1st to the 31st of August. Deadlines can be consulted here and the most important is the abstract submission on June 30th. This conference is part of the official celebrations of the International Year of Crystallography so talks involving experimental determination of electron densities will be well suited.

I participated in the latest edition and I must say it was a very enriching opportunity to learn from so many other researchers from across the world without leaving my desk. I already know what my talk will be about, now that we are so close to finish and submit a paper on the absence of reactivity for an anti-aromatic set of molecules. (I think I’ll call it “The reactivity of molecules that never existed [but that maybe should have.].) All talks are sent either as pdf, powerpoint presentations, youtube videos, etc. and Q&A are done over e-mail.

So this is a calling to other computational chemists out there who want to participate in this virtual conference. Kudos to Prof. Ponnadurai Ramasami and lets hope we can crystallize his visit to Mexico during 2014 the International Year of Crystallography (pun intended) and here’s to me going sometime to Mauritius!

Theoretical chemist in his early thirties, in love with life and deeply in love with his woman. I love science, baseball, literature, movies (perhaps even in that order). I'm passionate about food and lately wines have become a major hobby. In a nutshell I'm filled with regrets but also with hope, and that is called "living".

  2. Hi. My name is Daryl Cobranchi. I’m an analytical chemist who serves (volunteer) on the Executive Committee for the Eastern Analytical Symposium (http://eas.org). We’re just looking into virtual conferences. Would you be willing to share your thoughts on how this format works for scientific meetings? Sorry for dropping this in a comment box, but I did not see your email address. Mine is dcobranchi@gmail.com

    Thanks for whatever help you’re willing to give.
