The FOMMS 2012 Conference will be held July 22-26, 2012 at The Resort at The Mountain, nestled in the western highlands of Mt. Hood less than an hour southeast of Portland, Oregon, USA. In addition to outstanding lectures and discussion on a range of topics in molecular modeling and simulation, the conference will include mini-workshops, organized outings, and the FOMMS Medal banquet.
FOMMS conference registration begins on Sunday, July 22 at 2:00 pm in the Cascades Ballroom foyer. Please read through the Conference Fast Facts (link, pdf) for additional conference information. Resort information can be found at the Resort Overview link.
FOMMS 2012 is the 5th international conference showcasing applications and theory of computational quantum chemistry, molecular science, and engineering simulation. It is motivated by the continual need for precise prediction and control of materials properties and the fundamental, molecular-level understanding of chemical processes that allow the efficient creation of new products to meet specific market demands. Theoretical and algorithmic advances and modern computing technology allow companies to capture value and truly sustainable, far-reaching competitive advantage. The future for these methods is bright as they continue to prove their value to the chemical and chemical-related industries. The conference will explore these issues in the same format as the four previous highly successful FOMMS meetings held in 2000, 2003, 2006, and 2009.
Topics of special interest include the following:
Effective Simulation of Complex Molecules
Multi-resolution Simulations: QM/MM, MM/CG, and beyond
Integration of Molecular Modeling and Simulation with Product and Process Design
Energy and Environmental Applications
Pharmaceutical and Life Science Applications
Cyberinfrastructure and Future Trends
In addition to outstanding invited lectures and discussion on a range of topics in molecular modeling and simulation, the conference will include mini-workshop, organized outings, and the FOMMS Award banquet. In addition, the schedule provides large blocks of time for informal discussions, relaxation, or leisure as well as several receptions to facilitate interaction between conference participants.
