Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. The conference must be located in a country represented in IUPAC by a National Adhering Organization. See program details.

12th Triennial Congress of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists

  • This event has passed.

WATOC 2020 –the 12th Triennial Congress of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists– will be held in Vancouver, Canada, 3-8 July 2022. This Congress was originally planned to be held in August 2020, and first postponed 25-30 July 2021.

The first WATOC Congress in 1987 attracted about 350 scientists to Budapest. Three decades later, in 2017, more than 1500 registered for the eleventh Congress in Munich. In the span of three decades, the triennial WATOC congresses have become an important international gathering of computational and theoretical chemists.

The WATOC 2020 program will feature 12 plenary lectures, including the most recent Dirac and Schrödinger Medalists, more than 200 invited lectures, 180 oral contributions and a large number of poster presentations. The program will cover a broad range of topics in method development and applications to chemistry, biochemistry, materials and nanoscience.
