ACS Award for Computers in
Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research
Since 1984, The ACS Award for Computers in Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research has annually recognized outstanding individual achievement for the use of computers in education, product development, or research in the chemical and biological sciences. The award was established by Digital Equipment Corporation, and sponsored by them from 1984 through 1995. Following this period, IBM North America, Scientific and Technical Systems and Solutions, sponsored the award for the years 1996 through 1998. From 2001 through 2006, the award was sponsored by Accelrys. Since 2007, Schrödinger has sponsored the award.
This award, given annually, recognizes outstanding contributions to the advancement of the use of computers in the chemical and biological sciences, and consists of a cash prize and a certificate. The monetary award is $5,000, plus a $1,000 travel allowance to attend the meeting at which the award will be presented.
