Computational chemistry uses of computers in attempts to solve chemical problems. It uses theoretical methods implemented in software for computations. At the outset of the 21st Century, computational chemistry is leading to a wide range of possibilities usually interdisciplinary due to explosive increase in computer power and software capabilities. Computational chemistry is also integrating the chemistry curriculum.

The objectives of this workshop are to highlight the latest scientific advances within the broad field of computational chemistry in academia, industry and society.

This workshop provides the opportunity for researchers coming from corners of the world to be on a single platform for discussion, exchanging ideas and developing collaborations. It is also be a suitable platform for researchers from different fields to meet so that ideas for new interdisciplinary research can emerge.

I am the organizer of a workshop entitled Computational Chemistry and Its Applications (CCA). This workshop is held as part of the International Conference on Computational Science, ICSS (


The past and future CCA workshops are:

  1. 1st CCA, Reading, UK
  2. 2nd CCA, Beijing, China
  3. 3rd CCA, Krackow, Poland
  4. 4th CCA, Baton Rouge, USA, 25-27 May, 2009
  5. 5th CCA, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 31 May-2 June 2010
  6. 6th CCA, Tsukuba, Japan, 1-3 June, 2011
  7. 7th CCA, Barcelona, Spain, 5-7 June, 2013
  8. 8th CCA, Cairns, Australia, 10-12 June, 2014
  9. 9th CCA, Reykjavík, Iceland, 1-3 June, 2015
  10. 10th CCA, San Diego, California, USA, 6-8 June 2016

In this workshop, full papers dealing with all aspects of Computational Chemistry are considered for presentation and publication in the proceedings. Each paper is reviewed by three independent reviewers and we maintain a high quality workshop with the acceptance rate being about 40%. Participants usually say that our reviewing system is so hard that it is easier to publish in journals.
