The Division of Computational and Theoretical Chemistry (DCTC) is part of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuChemS) and as such is a European, scientific, non-political, non-profit-making, non-governmental organisation.
As a division of EuChemS, the DCTC contributes towards the strategic Aims and Objectives of the Society (see http://www.euchems.org). In addition, the Division has set down its own objectives and practices that complement and are consistent with the EuChemS Constitution and its Directives for Divisions.
The Division of Computational Chemistry is a network of societies and their scientists working with Computational and Theoretical Chemistry throughout Europe. The Division strengthens European structures in Computational and Theoretical Chemistry and gives a voice to this highly interdisciplinary field. It endeavours to establish and maintain highest quality standards in science and research, and enhances and communicates the knowledge and applicability of its field to other scientists, to wider society and in industry. The Division encourages communication and cooperation with conferences, education and training in its field.
The main event of the Division is the biennial conference which is an important gathering of the European computational and theoretical chemists since the mid-90s, see the Conferences page for more information on the next conference.
