3rd Workshop on Computational Chemistry and Its Applications (3rd CCA)
part of The International Conference on Computational Science
23-25 June 2008, Krakow, Poland

Workshop website: http://pages.intnet.mu/ramasami/iccs_2008.htm

Description of Workshop

Computational chemistry is a rapidly expanding with the explosive growth of computational power. It is widely used in research and more interestingly, interdisciplinary research.

The major goals of this workshop are to highlight the latest scientific advances within the broad field of computational chemistry in education, research, industry and society. This workshop will provide the opportunity for researchers coming from corners of the world to be on a single platform for discussion, exchanging ideas and possibly developing collaborations.

It will also be a suitable platform for researchers from different fields of computational science to meet so that ideas for interdisciplinary research can emerge.

This is the third workshop after being successful events in ICCS-2006 and ICCS-2007.

This workshop aims for high standards, only original work not published (part or complete) will be considered after peer reviewing.

Accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science.


Topics will include aspects of computational chemistry such as:

(i) Methods

Force fields, semiempirical, Ab initio, density functional

(ii) Applications

Kinetics, reaction mechanisms, catalysis, molecular properties, spectroscopic properties, conformational analysis, thermodynamics, solvent effects

(iii) Other research involving computational chemistry

(iv) Computational chemistry in chemical education

(v) Theoretical chemistry

(v) Interdisciplinary computational research involving chemistry
