The COMP division holds an annual Symposium on Emerging Technologies in Computational Chemistry at the American Chemical Society Fall National Meeting every year. The objective of the symposium is to stimulate, reward, and publicize methodological advances in computational chemistry. Schrödinger, Inc., sponsors a $1,000 prize for the best talk at the symposium.
The talks are evaluated at the meeting by a panel of experts based 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.
The competition is open to all. In order to participate, you must submit a regular short ACS abstract via the ACS Program and Abstract Creation System (PACS) on the ACS web site. It is also necessary to e-mail a longer (~1000-word) abstract to the symposium organizer. The talks must be original, not 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 for the competition will be rescheduled in one of the other COMP sessions at the meeting.
Long abstracts should be e-mailed to
Please use a subject of "ACS Emerging Technologies in Computational Chemistry Abstract".
You will receive a confirmation of receipt of your application via e-mail. Please contact the organizer immediately if you do not receive confirmation.
