PeerJ Physical Chemistry sponsoring awards at WATOC conference

We are delighted to announce that PeerJ Physical Chemistry will be sponsoring the upcoming 12th Triennial Congress of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists (“WATOC 2020”, having been delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic).

PeerJ Physical Chemistry is sponsoring 10 PeerJ Awards across the three poster sessions, where more than 400 posters are expected to be presented. Each winner will receive a free publication in PeerJ Physical Chemistry (subject to peer review) and a feature on the PeerJ blog.

About WATOC 2020

In the span of three decades – since the first meeting in 1987 – the triennial WATOC congresses have become a major international gathering of computational and theoretical chemists, with more than 1,500 attendees at the most recent instalment in Munich. WATOC 2020 – being held in person between 3rd and 8th July in Vancouver, Canada – will feature 12 plenary lectures, 252 invited lectures, 180 invited communications and a large number of poster presentations. With input from the International Advisory Committee, the Organizing Committee has taken gender, geography (52 countries) and research subject area into consideration to achieve a high diversity of invited speakers. The program will cover a broad range of topics in method development and applications to chemistry, biochemistry, catalysis, materials and nanoscience. In 2022, the keywords will include artificial intelligence, machine learning, quantum computing, computer-aided chemical design and the full range of contemporary topics in electronic structure theory and reaction dynamics.
