Virtual Conference

The first Virtual Conference on Computational Chemistry (VCCC-2013) was held from 1st to 31st August 2013. Following the success of this conference, we are now planning for the second virtual conference, VCCC-2014, from 1st to 31st August 2014.

An article on VCCC-2013 entitled as 'An Experience in the Digital Age' is published in the July 2014 issue of Chemistry International (CI) magazine. 

Chemistry is no longer about test-tubes and experiments alone, but it also involves the use of efficient and accurate computational methods.

ICT can be used effectively for conferences and thus, virtual conferences have gained popularity. The major advantage of virtual conference is the lower cost involved for participation. One simply has to have access to the Internet or email to be involved in the conference.


We look forward to your participation.


Professor Ponnadurai Ramasami

Chairman of VCCC-2014

How the virual conference will take place?

  • There will be a call for abstracts.

  • Scientific committee will evaluate suitability of each submitted abstract.

  • For each accepted abstract, author/s will be invited to submit the e-presentation in MS Word, MS Powerpoint, PDF or any other relevant format. Some examples are:
    (1) PDF format (15-20 pages)
    (2) Powerpoint format (15-20 slides)
    (3) Video (10-15 minutes)

  • E-presentations will be displayed on the website (secured).

  • Registered participants will be able to download all the e-presentations.

  • Participants can ask questions by sending email/s (using the online platform) to the corresponding author for each e-presentation.

  • When a participant sends an email, the same email is received by all the registered participants. However, it is the responsibility of the corresponding author to reply to the question/s being asked within 24 hours. When the corresponding author responds by replying the email, the same is received by all the participants.
  • Full paper (optional) will be reviewed and accepted papers will be collected in the conference proceedings.
