The International Conference on Current Trends in Computational Chemistry will gather plenary lectures by prominent invited speakers who have made significant contributions to the field of computational and quantum chemistry. It will also provide the opportunity to all members of our community, researchers, and students, to present and discuss their work through several poster sessions. Contributions in all areas of methods development and applications in theoretical chemistry are welcome. The format consists of a series of invited plenary lectures and poster presentations covering applications as well as theory.
