Symposium on Emerging Computational Technologies

$1000 prize awarded at the ACS national meeting
Philadelphia, PA

The Computers in Chemistry Division (COMP) of the ACS will hold the annual Symposium on Emerging Technologies in Computational Chemistry at the American Chemical Society National Meeting, Philadelphia, PA, Aug. 17-21 2008. The objective of the symposium is to stimulate, reward, and publicize methodological advances in computational chemistry.

The talks will be evaluated at the meeting by a panel of experts on the quality of the presentation, and the impact that the research will have on the future of computational chemistry and allied sciences. The symposium is ideal for presenting your latest and best research on new techniques, applications and software development.

Schrödinger, Inc., sponsors a $1,000 prize for the best talk at the symposium.

All are invited to participate. To participate, it is necessary to submit a regular short ACS abstract via It is also necessary to also email a longer (~1000-word) abstract to the organizer. The talks must be original and not be repeats of talks at other ACS symposia. The long abstracts will be evaluated, and those individuals selected for an oral presentation at the symposium will be notified. Applications for the Emerging Technologies Symposium that cannot be accepted will be rescheduled in one of the other COMP sessions at the meeting.

Long abstracts must be sent by e-mail to

Please use a subject of "ACS Emerging Tech Abstract". THE LONG ABSTRACT MUST BE SENT BY 5PM EASTERN TIME ON FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 2008.

The short abstract must be submitted to OASYS by the normal deadline of March 17, 2008.

You will receive a confirmation of receipt of your application via email. Please contact the organizer immediately if you do not receive confirmation by March 10.

Note: the deadline is March 17, 2008 for the Fall 2008 Philadelphia ACS Meeting.
