MCCM2021 – It’s back

We are pleased to announce the fourth Midlands Computational Chemistry Meeting, which will be held online over two half-days on the 6th and 7th of January 2021.

Following on from the previous meetings, this event is an opportunity to meet other computational chemists, both in the Midlands region and further afield, and to hear about the great work our colleagues and students are doing.

The format of the meeting will be invited and contributed presentations, and lightning poster presentations followed by posters in individual online rooms.

Preference for contributed oral presentations will be given to postgraduate students, postdocs and recently appointed academics. There will be prizes for the best talk and the best poster, thanks to the generous support of the Royal Society of Chemistry Faraday Division.

We have three invited speakers showcasing a variety of Computational Chemistry research:

  • Prof. Jamshed Anwar (University of Lancaster) – modelling organic molecular assemblies, soft matter and solutions
  • Prof. Elena Besley (University of Nottingham) – development of theoretical models and modelling of materials on the nanoscale
  • Dr. Jonathan Skelton (University of Manchester) – computational materials science and condensed matter


To register, please fill the form. Registration is free.

Abstract submission will close on Monday the 30th November 2020. Acceptance of oral or poster presentations will be confirmed in the middle of December. Registration for attendees without abstracts will close on Friday the 18th December 2020.
