CCCC5 is the continuation of a series of meetings held every three years intended to foster the excellence of computational chemistry in Canada. One of the principal goals of the conference is to highlight the impact of computational chemistry in academia, industry and society. As in the previous incarnations of this meeting, a program covering major new directions in research and applications of the computational discipline has been put together, with a special emphasis on computational chemistry applied to biophysics and material science. For this purpose, we have prepared a program of speakers actively involved in developing new methods and applications of high performance computing in chemistry and related areas.

The meeting will be held on the campus of the University of Toronto, with inexpensive rooms available in nearby hotels at special rates. Toronto is an exciting, diverse city with many attractions, ranging from excellent museums to fine dining. Since Toronto is the largest urban centre in Canada, travel to and from the city is easy and relatively inexpensive. The costs of the meeting are modest (all figures in Canadian dollars):
Students/Post-docs: $100 (early) - $130 (After June 1)
All others: $300 (early) - $330 (After June 1)
Included in the prices above are registration, Banquet and Reception.

This edition of the conference targets a number of areas in which computational chemistry has a large impact, including applications in material science, computational studies of transition pathways and rough energy landscapes, soluble and membrane proteins, advances in structure-based drug design, self-assembly, membranes, and transport, in-silico adme/tox in drug discovery, and the development of new methods in quantum chemistry. A number of outstanding researchers have been invited for the fifth edition of this meeting, including:

C. Bayly (Merck Frosst)
U. Norinder (AstraZeneca)
Tucker Carrington (UdeM)
Emily Carter (UCLA)
Gerbrand Ceder (MIT)

* to be confirmed

Each session of the meeting will consist of a combination of a number of invited lectures complemented by several oral presentations selected from submitted abstracts. In addition, an important component of the conference will be two poster sessions covering all aspects of computational chemistry. Abstracts from all sectors including industry, academia and government are welcome. We strongly encourage you and any interested colleague to visit the conference web page, submit an abstract, and attend this informal, "Gordon Conference" style meeting.
