Swedish Theoretical Chemistry 2017 – Bridging gaps

Annual meeting of the Swedish Chemical Society Theoretical Chemistry Section, Göteborg 16-18 August

Welcome to Swedish Theoretical Chemistry 2017, which is held at Chalmers University of Technology August 16-18, 2017. The theme of the conference is “Bridging gaps”. The gaps that will be in the focus during the conference is on one hand the gaps between high level quantum Chemistry results and macroscopic measurable quantities. Another gap is the possibility to extend the range of atomic descriptions by embedding schemes. A third gap is the traditional differences to tackle the challenge of quantum mechanical calculations within Chemistry and Physics which recently has been reduced by mixing  wavefunction and electron density functional calculations.

The Björn Roos award and the Inga Fischer-Hjalmars award will be announced during the symposium. The Björn Roos award is awarded every three years to a scientist who has shown excellence within the development or application of theoretical chemistry methods. The Inga Fischer-Hjalmars award is awarded to the most eminent PhD thesis within theoretical chemistry defended in 2016.
