The International Conference on The Theory and Applications of Computational Chemistry in 2008 (TACC2008)
Event Date/Time: Sep 23, 2008
End Date/Time: Sep 27, 2008
Since the first applications of computers in chemistry in the early 1960's, computational chemistry has evolved today to be at the vanguard of the most advances in chemistry, material science, physics, geology, biology and medicine. Its impact in chemistry can be noted from the fact that within four decades of existence, five of the top ten most highly cited publications in 125 years of JACS are related to computational chemistry. Apart from technical advances in computers and algorithms, the phenomenal impact of computational chemistry is due to the dedicated and sustained efforts of many individuals. In this regard, we felt that it would be befitting to organize a symposium Theory and Applications of Computational Chemistry (TACC) in 2008 gathering a large number of the world's leading experts in computational chemistry. This event follows the previous successful 2004 TACC conference in Korea.
