The Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry celebrates its 50th anniversary in Vienna, Austria on September 14th — 18th, 2014. This annual meeting brings together scientists from all areas of Theoretical Chemistry. It will include plenary lectures, contributed talks and poster presentations, which will be held at the city campus of the University of Vienna.
The invited speakers of this edition are selected to feature the topic “Quantum Chemistry and Chemical Dynamics”, spanning from the development of methods to applications in any of these fields or the combination of both, also for excited states and light-induced processes. The oral contributions and posters will cover all areas of Theoretical Chemistry. Additionally, two historical lectures will highlight the development of Theoretical Chemistry in the last 50 years within the German speaking countries and the history of Chemistry starting 3000 years ago.

Upon registration to the conference you will receive an e-mail including a registration ID and a link to the abstract submission form. There you will have to provide presenter name, co-author names and title as well as a PDF that is generated out of the template (.odt, .tex, .doc).
As it is tradition in the STC, six prizes will be awarded to young scientists (< 35 years) presenting a poster in any of the two poster sessions. Each prize consists of a monetary reward of 50 Euros, kindly sponsored by the GÖCH – Gesellschaft Österreichischer Chemiker (Austrian Chemical Society). Additionally, we are delighted to announce that a one year free online access to ChemPhysChem (Poster Session I) and the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry (Poster Session II) will be also awarded to the winners.
Eligible posters will be identified by a STC sticker which should be attached to the top right hand corner of the poster. Stickers can be obtained at the registration office, upon presentation of a valid credential.
The winners will be announced in public at the end of the symposium.
