On behalf of the Organizing Committee of WATOC 2020, it is my pleasure to request that you reserve the week of August 16, 2020 for the 12th Triennial Congress of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists (watoc.net) in Vancouver, Canada.
The first WATOC Congress in 1987 attracted about 350 scientists to Budapest. More than 1500 registered for the eleventh Congress in 2017 in Munich. In the span of three decades, the triennial WATOC congresses have become an important international gathering of computational and theoretical chemists.
The WATOC 2020 program will feature 12 plenary lectures, including the most recent Dirac and Schrödinger Medalists, more than 200 invited lectures, 180 oral contributions and a large number of poster presentations. The program will cover a broad range of topics in method development and applications to chemistry, biochemistry, materials and nanoscience.
Be sure to check periodically our website (watoc2020.ca) for more information, as it becomes available. We look forward to welcoming you to Vancouver, Canada’s Pacific gateway, in August 2020.
With best wishes,
Russell J. Boyd
